Question ID: 776155
I have heard rumors that a bill failed or is currently in Virginia
Commonwealth legislature that proposes raising the minimum age for a
learner's permit from 15 and a half to 16, and the minimum age for a
drivers license from 16 and three months to 17. Does (did) such a bill
exist? If so, what is the bill number?

Howdy pcbene-ga,

It is hard (impossible) to prove a negative, but I have found no evidence
at all that Virginia has considered a change as described to Virginia Code
 46.2-335, which covers learner's permits.

There were the following, but they do not propose the changes mentioned.

Senate Bill 977 - Offered 1/12/05

House Bill 1625 - Died 2/4/05

House Bill 287 - Offered 1/11/06

The changes that raised the ages to the current limits were just put into
place in 2001, so it would be surprising, at least to me, if such a change
were proposed.

Would the above answer your question?  Thanks!

Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
