OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A state lawmaker says he'll introduce legislation next year making it more difficult for a teenager to get a driver's license.

Representative Danny Morgan of Prague says his plan is similar to a three-tiered system in North Carolina for teen driver's.

The North Carolina system has three levels.

Level One allows a limited learners permit for 12 months involving parents or guardian training the teen driver.

Level Two begins to allow teens to drive without supervision at certain times. It requires six months of driving without a traffic violation before moving to Level Three, which is an unrestricted driver's license.

Oklahoma lawmakers are starting a study of Morgan's proposal.
