--- FOR DENCO-GA ONLY PLEASE --- Please do not lock this question if you are not denco-ga... 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, Greatly appreciate you reposting this question. 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. http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+46.2-335 There were the following, but they do not propose the changes mentioned. Senate Bill 977 - Offered 1/12/05 http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?051+ful+SB977 House Bill 1625 - Died 2/4/05 http://www.vad.org/Legislative/legislative2005.html House Bill 287 - Offered 1/11/06 http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?061+ful+HB287 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. If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask. Search strategy: Examined the applicable Virginia codes. Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
