Will we soon see 17-year-olds driving in France? In any case, what advocates a report on the reform of the driver's license will be given Tuesday, February 12 to Prime Minister Philippe Édouard. Among the main measures proposed, there is this device allowing young people having followed the driving accompanied to pass the examination from the age of 17 years. As reported by Auto-Plus, this reduction in the age of the license will have a counterpart: accompanied drivers would be prohibited from driving at night and on weekends.

"The permit is not an administrative act, it is an emancipation," says Françoise Dumas. If the member's proposal number 9 came into effect, 17-year-olds could ride without an escort. A freedom that would apply however only on the French territory. This is already the case of British teenagers who can get their "driving license" from the age of 17, but have the right to move only in the United Kingdom. A measure to promote accompanied driving since the young people who benefit from it pass their driving test better.

Le Parisien notes that only 25% of permits were issued to drivers trained through this system. The problem is to find available escorts, accompanied driving is often the parents' nightmare. The report therefore recommends "developing a pool of guides: via the civil service, local missions, etc.". A proposal that the road safety association wishes to see conditioned for the sake of safety. "This proposal is a measure of accessibility, not road safety," assures Anne Lavaud, a member of the association, to the Parisian.
