Why are more teens waiting to get their license?

A new study shows today's youth are waiting longer before getting behind the wheel.

Getting your driver's license used to be a rite of passage for teenagers.

According to a report by AAA, only 44% of teens get their license within a year of their 16th birthday, and only 54% are licensed by the time they are 18.

A number of reasons include: parents not wanting teens to drive yet, bad grades holding some teens back, and of course, the cost of driving.
