The landscape of the Illinois licensing scene may change quite radically very soon. The Illinois House has passed a measure that will require even adult drivers license applicants to go through one of the Illinois drivers education course if they have not completed drivers ed at school. Previously, those who applied for the Illinois drivers license at the age of 18 and older did not have to take any additional courses or programs, passing the Illinois permit test on road rules and road signs and then the Illinois driving test was sufficient for obtaining a license.
New York is getting ready to switch to a new type of drivers license the likes of which has never been seen before. Even though the latest NY drivers license spots a monochrome retro-style look, it is packed with hi tech security features that make this drivers license virtually impossible to forge.

Hyundai Elantra is so good that it was even named the best car for teens by consumer reports in 2011, along with another car from Hyundai - Sonata. Hyundai Elantra is a compact sedan that has the best fuel economy in its class, handles beautifully, looks great and is packed with safety features - everything a parent needs before handing the keys to an excited teenager.

A teenage driver crashed his Elantra at the speed of 115 mph after an alleged electronic system failure that left him without an ability to stop.
Google is working on the invention that will literally change the world - a car that does not require a driver. While the possibility has been drooled over by sci-fi fans around the world for a few decades now, no one has ever come even close to building a prototype that was ready for on-road trials. Most of the projects that were introduced by car manufacturers required a whole new infrastructure to be built: new roads, guiding systems, positioning systems, etc. Google went another way and fit all those things into a mass-produced vehicle. Better yet - Google driverless car has already undergone extensive trials, on a racing track and even on real public roads. The government in Nevada and California are working with Google on adjusting the legislative system to this new possibility and Nevada already licenses driverless cars. So, are you ready to finally throw your drivers license away?
