Frazier’s teen driving bill clears Assembly

By Danny Bernardini.

FAIRFIELD — A bill that would change some requirements for teens and their driver’s licenses passed the Assembly on Monday.

The bill from Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley, would add restrictions to the provisional licensing program. AB 1113 would require the provisional license to last until a person was 18 and lower the nighttime restriction an hour to 10 p.m. It proposes to increase the age of passengers to 21 years old and would increase the length of a learner permit to nine months.

AB 1113 will next be heard in the state Senate.
