On April 14, 1997, Governor Zell Miller signed into law a comprehensive package of DUI and teen-age driving legislation, the "Teen-age and Adult Driver Responsibility Act". The 2001 General Assembly modified and strengthened laws dealing with "drunk driving" and "teens". The major legislative enactments and changes are set forth below.
For more information on teenage drivers and the Driver Responsibility Act, please visit the website of the Department of Motor Vehicles .
