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."

By Cameron French TORONTO (Reuters) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may have offered cash and a car to buy a video allegedly showing him using crack cocaine, according to notes from police wiretaps. Ford admitted early last month he had smoked crack cocaine, saying it was probably "in one of my drunken stupors," but he said he is not an addict and does not need help. The existence of an alleged video was initially reported in May by the Toronto Star newspaper and media website Gawker. Ford said at the time that he could not comment on a video he had not seen "or does not exist." But according to police notes of a recorded phone conversation involving two suspected gang members, Ford was aware of the video's existence in March, and offered to buy it.
