The State Revenue Department is talking up a new law going into effect next Monday. It’s a law dealing with young drivers holding Intermediate Licenses – those are licenses issued to drivers over the age of 16 and under 19. Maura Browning with the Revenue Department says the new law will restrict the number of passengers Intermediate License holders will be allowed to carry in a vehicle. During the first six months after being issued an Intermediate License, the holder will be limited to one passenger under the age of 19 who is not an immediate family member. After six months, the driver is limited to three passengers under 19 who are not members of the driver’s immediate family. An immediate family member is a brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, an adopted sibling, or a foster child living in the same household as the driver. There are approximately 125,000 Missourians driving with Intermediate Licenses.
