Legally right now it's 16. But what about all those high schoolers that live too far away from school for a bus, and their parents work, they'd need a car, right? so if they change to 18 some people won't get to school. so my answer is 16. but now that I think about it, it doesn't benefit me much, so I change to 18
i got my liscense when i juust turned 17. But sadly, i wish i could have gotten it a little later because my driving record isnt that great, but ive learned to stop driving so fast. so i think people should get it when theyre 18 or older so they know better.

Everyone makes stupid choices, so when you say that 18 is safer; not saying that you DID say this, then that's bull-crap. It depends on the kid's driving skills and how well they stay focused. There are 16 year olds who drive like a pro. There are 18 year olds that suck at driving. Plus, they drink and drive, but that can be anyone.
I started driving at the age of 15, and I got my permit at the age of 16. I was not a bad driver at all, around those ages. Now, I'm 18 and I'm driving like a pro. Still, any age is safe, as long as you stay focused and don't do things like, drink and drive.
18. I am 18 and finally getting my permit at the end of the month. I preferred to wait because I believe most 15-17 year Oldsmobile are not mature enough. although in some states, when your 15 and you get your permit, you have to have it for a year or so and go through drivers ed, where if your 18 you can get your permit and then the licence on the spot. I don't like that idea and I think they should do the same stuff.

18 definitely. I live in a small town and there have been 4 16 yr olds that died or caused a death in the last two years because of texting while driving. All 4 had their licenses less than a yr. this is not to say older people don't text. But it proves to me the young ones just don't have the experience to juggle a car and phone at the same time, and they don't have the mental capacity to understand/anticipate danger.
