--- 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.
