For the purposes of this fact sheet, the term young driver refers to a person 15 to 20 years old operating a motor vehicle involved in a crash. People in this age group generally obtain their licenses for the first time and many are under a graduated driver licensing program as they learn driving skills. In all motorized jurisdictions around the world, young, inexperienced drivers have much higher crash rates than older, more experienced drivers.
