For first time drivers under the age of 18 there are a more few rules to abide by.
The first year after obtaining a license these drivers are not allowed to have more than one passenger under the age of 21, not including family members.
Driving between the hours of midnight and 5 a-m are also not allowed along with prohibiting all cell phone use.
"you know the driving task at hand is hard enough, especially for these youngsters learning. They don't need the added distractions in the car, whether it's other teenagers, or cell phones, radio. It's just too hard to focus on the task at hand."
"Many teen drivers think they're invincible behind the wheel."
"We tell 'em it just takes an instant for the world to get turned upside down and we really stress to them to be safe and cautious."
Mullins says many teenagers just don't understand the importance of gaining driving experience before adding any other distractions.
They first need to learn to become defensive drivers.
"Experience we feel like is the key. The more they drive, the better they become. We just feel that those added distractions at that age group really affect their ability to do the right things and take care of their driving situation."

Agency wants drug labels to reflect this rare risk
Experts note numbers of uninsured should drop as final phase of 'Obamacare' is rolled out
WASHINGTON (AP) — After more than 40 years of study, the U.S. government says it has found no evidence that common anti-bacterial soaps prevent the spread of germs, and regulators want the makers of Dawn, Dial and other household staples to prove that their products do not pose health risks to consumers.
European Union diplomats approved new anti-tobacco legislation on Wednesday, including larger health warnings on cigarette packets and the bloc's first ever rules on electronic cigarettes. "Agreement on the tobacco directive is a big step towards a healthier and more prosperous society," said Vytenis Povilas Andriukaitis, health minister of Lithuania, which currently holds the rotating EU presidency. The deal was struck after governments and the European Parliament resolved a dispute over how tightly to regulate the booming market for e-cigarettes, which some analysts predict will eclipse the $700 billion-a-year regular cigarette market in 10 years. But while popular refillable e-cigarettes will be allowed, the European Commission could impose an EU-wide ban in future if three or more member states prohibit them on health grounds.
Insurance companies are struggling with a new request by the Obama administration to make sure people receive medical benefits under healthcare reform come January 1, even if they miss a sign-up deadline set for next Monday. Last week, the administration appealed to the insurance industry to accept people who sought benefits past the December 23 enrollment deadline for January 1, and to consider approving retroactive coverage for consumers who signed up during the month of January. So far, the answer has amounted to a big "maybe." Insurers are worried that some consumers will sign up for retroactive January plans only if they have incurred a hefty medical bill. "It creates a situation where someone might be able to apply for insurance when they have already had services" such as in the emergency room, said Mary Beth Chambers, spokeswoman for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas.
