GDL Made Simple is an entertaining 5-minute video that you can watch and share for free by clicking this link. The video explains New York’s 3-step GDL process for new drivers:
- Learner Permit
- Junior License
- Full License
A complementary GDL Made Simple brochure is available by clicking this link. This 2-page pamphlet can be downloaded, copied and shared to help reinforce the information provided in the GDL Made Simple video.

The HEARTS Network
Nearly everyone knows someone whose life has been impacted by a teen driving-related crash. The National Safety Council manages the HEARTS Network, a nationwide group of families and victims who have been directly impacted by a teen-related crash. The HEARTS Network - an acronym for Honoring Everyone Affected, Rallying The Survivors - helps families and victims support one another and advocate for change. We encourage anyone who has been impacted to join the HEARTS Network and the Teen Safe Driving Coalitions.
Personal stories play an important role in affecting change. For that purpose, we have created a “Sharing HEARTS” section of the HEARTS Network webpage dedicated to telling the stories of those whose lives have changed forever because of teen-related crashes.
