I am in a little debate with a couple teenagers about obtaining a drivers license. My question is (and I have googled and looked everywhere). Is there a restriction of how tall you must be?, seems these kids think their friend cannot have a drivers license because she is too small, but she is 16 and believe me I would rather be on the street driving with her than a couple of these young bucks that know it all.

Back when I was in high school a very long time ago my girlfriend was only 5' and was driving. I have even seen little people driving with the aide of either pedal extensions or hand controls along with a booster seat so that they can see over the steering wheel. So I doubt that there are any height restrictions but some shorter people may need some kind of aide to be able to drive.

You didn't say how tall this girl is.

Don't know for sure about a minimum height, but my mother in law is 4'7" and has obtained licenses in New York, Texas, Virginia, and Utah. I also have a second cousin that is barely over 4 feet and she has a Utah license.

I am not sure and I didn't really want to ask her. I would guess 4' 8"

My daughter is 16 years old, and has had her learners permit for 4 months now. She is just a sprout in size. (under 5' tall) She uses a pillow to sit on when driving certain vehicles, other vehicles she is fine. I don't know of any height restrictions to obtain a drivers license.
