It is pretty common for teenagers to steal their parent’s cars and take them for a drive. Even though it has not been confirmed who the car belongs to, the most certain thing is that the law has been broken. No one is allowed to drive a car without a valid driver’s license and you cannot get a driver’s license until you are 18 years or old unless you have a provisional license.
From the age of 16, applicants can submit a provisional driving license application. Valid for driving a moped or gearless motorcycle (with a capacity of up to 50 cc) from the age of 16, and from the age of 18 or older to you can apply for a license to drive any other type of vehicle.
The law is there for a reason and everyone should abide by it. There is a reason that the legal driving age has been made to be 18 years and older. Children who are exposed to driving skills at a young age and have access to car keys and cars should be monitored closely as they can easily get carried away.
