Yes, the government should raise the driving age. Statistics show that car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers,. New Jersey is the only state that requires teens to be at least 17 to get a driving license and they have a lower rate of crash related deaths among teens than other states.

The driving age should be kept at 16 here in the United States. Kids should have at least two years of semi-supervised driving under their belts before getting an unrestricted licenses at the age of 18. Also, it helps them prepare for the adult world by giving them a little taste of adult responsibility.

Most fatals auto accidents in America are caused by teen drivers who simply don't know how to drive yet. They are distracted by cell phones, schoolwork, romantic partners and parents. Kids have enough to worry about and enough on their minds to worry about getting a driver's license at age 16. The age should go up a year to 17 at minimum, 18 at most, to prevent more tragic highway deaths.

I don't think that government should raise the driving age, because at age of 17 or 18 people are considered to be a adult and are fully in control of their actions for driving. Having stricter driving rules would be a different story. Driving allows people to work and do other thing by themselves instead of depending on their parents or someone else.
