A new state law aimed at teen drivers starts today.

Teenagers driving with a Junior Operator's license and without a parent, are allowed only one non-family member under the age of 21 as a passenger, unless supervised by an adult.

The new law also requires teens to have 50 hours of  supervised driving before taking a road test,  it was previously 20 hours.

It also requires 16-year olds to wait a minimum of six months before being allowed to take a road test.
