Well, I can't provide a reference, as the report came in the mail with my insurance. I have USAA, which is military, and in their studies, they report that ..."as of 2008, the number of non-fatal accidents rose from 12% to 35% for drivers between the ages of 16-19." My insurance has risen because of this startling statistic. (I'm 16). It's mostly due to texting, and more careless teens. Sorry for no reference, but you could search State Farm or something for a reference.

I'm sure it is super high. I just finished my first year accident free, just a bump but I know myself to be extremely responsible. I recommend if you are a parent, to not go overboard and buy your child a brand new car. Start cheap. Not only will your child value the graduation gift you have in store, but it is less worry for us teens as well since we won't have to worry as much if we do get in an accident.

i can't seem to find the percentage of accidents in the first two years, but here is some information regarding accidents- what causes them, who is more likely to have them...
this isn't a percentage- but-
New Drivers. The risk of a Crash risk is much higher during the first year teenagers are able to drive
i got that from this site- http://www.car-accidents.com/teen-car-accidents.html
from the michigan state police- http://www.michigan.gov/msp/0,1607,7-123-1593_3504_22760-73212--,00.html
Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for young drivers. In 2008, drivers 16 - 24 years of age constituted 14 percent of all drivers yet were involved in 36.3 percent of all crashes and 31.6 percent of fatal crashes. These statistics represent involvements that are significantly higher than expected, considering the size of this driver population and the miles driven.
