Farm driving as young as 14 rejected in CO Senate

DENVER — A bill allowing youths as young as 14 to receive Colorado driver’s licenses for agricultural work has been rejected by a Senate committee.

The Senate Transportation Committee voted 5-2 today against a bill creating a new “agricultural youth driver’s license.” Teens would have been eligible at 14 1/2 years of age, with the caveat that they could drive only between their homes and an approved agricultural business.

Those under 16 would be able to drive on highways only with an adult in the car.

The proposal passed in the House.
