Drivers on a restricted licence may soon have to drive around with 'R Plates' on their car.
It comes as part of a Government push to reduce the road toll by targeting high-risk motorists.
Other measures already signed off include doubling prison penalties for dangerous drivers who cause death, and introducing alcohol detecting car ignition locks and a zero alcohol limit for repeat drink drivers.
Associate Transport Minister Simon Bridges says although the number of fatal accidents involving 15 to 19 year olds this year is down, there are still too many.
