13
Three-Part Thesis Sentence Disagree/Dont Change
the Driving Age
The Commonwealth of Virginia should not change
the age at which drivers can obtain their license
from age 16 because school sponsored driver
instruction prepares teens to be responsible
drivers, teens need to be able to drive home
after school sponsored extra-curricular
activities, and teens are a valuable part of the
workforce and need to be able to drive to work.
14
Three-Part Thesis Sentence Agree/Raise the
Driving Age
The Commonwealth of Virginia should change the
age at which drivers obtain their license from
age 16 to 18 because seniors gain more from
driver training than sophomores, the school
provides free transportation to students involved
in after school activities, and graduated seniors
can work full time allowing them to handle the
high cost of car ownership.
