Antalya'nın Alanya ilçesi'nde -ailesi tarafından otomobili -kullanılmasına izin verilen 12 yaşındaki çocuk

kullanmak means to use..kullanılma-sı-n-a..his to use
izin verilen..permission given..verİLen is the passive verb form of vermek to give.

Görenleri hayrete düşürdü..those who saw in amazment fell....meaning their jaw dropped.or their mouths fell open

i am a retired sergeant major. this road is quiet''
and the grandson pipes up
''Araç kullanmasını oğretiyorum'..diyerek torunu desteklemesi
''vehicle using it i am learning'' saying grandchild ..supportingly
''şaşkınlığa neden oldu''...''astonishment of why cause.'' :)
