Driver's License: A right or a privledge?

Many people have different thoughts on whether getting a driver's license is a personal right of society or a privilege that should be earned, and not just given.

Furthermore, if teenagers have a driver's license, what are they family expectations for how and when the person should drive, and what they are expected to pay for.

Watch this video of Randall explaining the rules in his own family:

Do you think such rules would work in your own family? Why or why not? Please share your ideas.

  1. It must be turn 18 years old to get a drive's license. So teengers can't drive vehicle in China. But I think Randall's rules also suit to other things in family, If kids get high grade at term exam in school,they could get gift that they expect from parents. Kids are punished impartially as their mistakes. To order such rules, let kids understand duty in family or in society.

  2. Well, here in Brazil only those over 18 years old are allowed to get a driver's license. However, 16 year olds - with their parents' consent - can drive too. If they ever get in trouble for running a red light, or being involved in a car accident, their parents will be held responsible for their children' misconduct. Anyways, I think giving minors permission to drive is more than a right, it's a privilege that, personally speaking, should be earned. There should be rules for them to live by so that they could eventually be allowed to use the family's car. Randall's rules are pretty fair. I, myself, would be more strict.

  4. I think these rules just suit for low Population density countries because many teenagers will driving too fast and it will cause serious result when the traffic accident happening in high population dentsity .

  5. i think that driver licence is a important thing because with this small card you could drive around without any warning of plolice.and i think that people who are under 16 should also get a driver license because they are mature enough to have a license and permit should be at allowed at the age of 13......
