Graduated Licensing for New Drivers
Graduated Licensing System
Effective January 1, 1998, a graduated licensing system went into effect in Illinois. This new law does not change the minimum age at which an individual may apply for a driver's license, but it does establish additional training requirements during the instructional permit phase. This results in better trained 16-year-old drivers.

Additional Information
There are also additional seat belt usage requirements associated with this new law. For further information you can contact the Vernon Hills Police Department at 847-362-4449 or the Secretary of State's office. View new laws affecting drivers under the age of 21.
