New BSA transportation policy, drivers must be licensed and at least 18
The Boy Scouts of America’s updated transportation policy now requires all drivers to be at least 18 and have a valid driver’s license.
Scouting youth under age 18 are not insured under the BSA’s commercial general liability policy and cannot be allowed to drive to or from Scouting activities.
This includes an under-18 Scout or Venturer driving himself or herself to a Scouting event, even if he or she is the only one in the car. It includes short trips across town and long trips across the country.
There are no exceptions, and the new policy is effective immediately.
