Ask a Trooper | Sgt. Curt S Mowers: Restricted farm work licenses
Question: Is there still such a thing as a farm license? I remember some of my friends having one, but that was a long time ago and they basically used it to drive all the time.
Parents are strongly urged to consider all the facts and restrictions before allowing their teen to obtain a restricted farm work license and to monitor its use very carefully if their teen has one. Most of these teens have had virtually no formal driver training, and this can make for a very dangerous situation on our roadways. Teens are much safer when the parents are involved in the driver instruction. This also allows the teen to become a much better driver. Remember, the number one cause of death for teens is motor vehicle crashes.--
