Con

I think the driving age should be left alone because most people are mature at age of 16 and any younger i feel like they are immature and not responsiable

Are you talking specifically about the USA? If so, could you define what you mean by immature and how that affects driving abilities? The majority of states allow an option of a permit at the age of 15, this gives the ability for those under the driving age, to drive as long as they have an adult over the age of 21 with a valid license. Would receiving a permit at 15, also be considered an age that's immature? Also you use the phrase "most people", so would you consider that for some people, meaning the people not included in most, are mature enough to drive?

Does the Pro have to be for lowering the age? I would argue that it needs to be raised...

Con, you need to specify what country you're talking about.
Many countries have different minimum age for driving:
