A quarter of young people are ‘bored’ and therefore get into the car without a driver’s license

Research by youth organization TeamAlert shows that a quarter of young people between the ages of 14 and 24 sometimes drive a car without a driver’s license. Why do they do that? Because they are … ‘bored’. You don’t believe that do you?!

See that open door over there? We kick him in. Driving without a license is irresponsible and dangerous. Yet a quarter of young people between 14 and 24 do it sometimes, according to a study by TeamAlert. The reasons for this are too bizarre for words. Young people would drive without a license because they are bored, because the waiting lists for driving lessons and driving tests are so long and because they want to maintain their driving skills. Excuse me? You are between 14 and 24 years old. You have no driving skills. And no driver’s license.

A third of young people ride a scooter without a driver’s license

In 2020, the number of young people (12 to 17 years old) who were taken off the road by the police grew by 30 percent, it writes AD† The Halt Foundation – which has the legal task of tackling criminal behavior by young people – explains the increase by pointing to the coronalockdown. So bored again. Incidentally, driving without a driver’s license on the scooter happens many times more often. To TeamAlert, a third (!) of the young people admit that they sometimes do. Driving without a driver’s license carries a fine of 340 euros. You are also not insured if you are on the road without a paper, so you will be held personally liable in the event of an accident.
