This is one of those examples where it depends on your community. In a big city oh heck no, 14 year olds should not drive. There are way too many factors involved for someone that young to process and be trusted to act responsibly.

But if you live on a farm 10 miles outside of a very small town then driving at 14 might help the community. Driving allows them to help with chores around the farm and get to and from school. The community can add restrictions on it like only during certain daylight hours, and possibly even only in the two scenarios I listed.

If this is alien to you then maybe you never lived in a truly rural area. That small town may have very limited resources and paying for a handful of buses to round up those farm kids may be more of a drain than simply starting them early as drivers. And often farm families have more vehicles on hand than the typical American family, and they've already exposed their kids to driving around the farm despite being young. I didn't grow up on a farm but I had friends who did. I remember at as young as 13 sitting in an old pickup on a farm while my young friend drove feed from one end of a farm to the other. It was easy and normal around there.

I think 14 year olds should be able to drive because I already know hoe to drive and its pretty easy. also I think 14 year olds should be able to het out on their own with their friends or family and practice driving.

No, I'm still on fence about 15-16 year old's driving. It's a very large responsibility and even adults don't get it right all the time.

Side: No, To Young

No, you can get your temps at 15.5 and license at 16. That's young enough.

I started driving long before I was 14 when my feet barely reached the pedals. Many farm kids are driving by 14 but I don't recommend it for everyone. It's one thing to drive on gravel roads but I wouldn't want to see 14 year olds out on the highway or in city traffic. Problem is, one 14 year old might be fine, but the kid next to him is still thinking like a lizard. (Brain is still developing) Best to wait.

Emotionally, children aged 14 are too young to have a driving licence. Road sense must be acquired and it is boring as well as restrictive. Young minds are more into taking risks and children behind the wheel are a danger to themselves as well as other road users. Personally, I like the legal age of driving being 18 as is the case in the European Union (with a few exceptions).

If 14 year olds drive imagine all the crashes along the street. Not saying they are nit mature just i see grown ups crashed all the time, and if a kid where to drive it will be worse then the adults.

As I recall the age limit to receiving a license is based on a set of cognitive standards that individuals below the age of 16-18 (I live in Germany, but am licensed in the US) do not meet.
