This law applies both to teens who have not yet received their driver's license and to those who have had their license for less than one year as of Jan. 1. We want teens to be aware that even if they have already started driving young passengers because they earned a license at least six months ago, after Jan. 1, 2006 they will be subject to a traffic violation if they carry underage passengers before the one-year anniversary of obtaining their license.
