For additional statistics, contact Driver and Vehicle Services at 717-412-5300.
 
Note: PennDOT uses 1999 as a baseline for comparison because this was the year the Graduated Driver Licensing Program went into effect in Pennsylvania, which provided for stricter requirements in the licensing of 16 and 17-year-old, first-time drivers.
