I don't think this is a form of child abuse but it is an act of stupidity if the father knowingly allowed his child to drive without a licensed driver. But, if the girl had said that she and an older friend who had a license were driving together somewhere then it is not the father's fault but her own. No, it would not be legally defined as child abuse, but other charges could be brought against the minor and a parent who knowingly allowed the action.
