A visiting expert is horrified that NZ allows 15 year-olds to drive. Here is a slightly dated international comparison of traffic deaths;
The US has a driving age of 16 in most states and France,18, with an allowance for younger driving with certain conditions met. Most European countries have a limit of 18 and in the UK there is a campaign to lift the age to 21 (gleaned from a quick google search so don't take as gospel).
Personally I think our driving age is too young but am also reluctant to deny responsible 15 year-olds the opportunity.
