In Montana, in 2011, nearly 25 percent of all fatal and injury crashes involved a young driver. Graduated Drivers Licensing (GDL) requirements for new drivers went into effect July 1, 2006, which requires seatbelt use, limit the hours of unsupervised driving, and restricts the number and age of nonfamily passengers. It is expected that the GDL program will reduce these rates.

New strategies focus on programs to support GDL implementation and expansion of drivers education programs.
