Restrictions

For the first six months with a graduated driver license, drivers must not drive a motor vehicle between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. unless one of these conditions is met:

  • A parent or legal guardian with a valid Class A, B, C or D license occupies the front passenger seat.
  • You are driving directly to or from a sanctioned school-sponsored activity, place of employment, a sanctioned religious activity or a family emergency

For the first six months with a graduated driver license, the driver must not drive a motor vehicle containing more than one passenger under the age of 18 unless one of these conditions is met:

  • The passengers are the driver's siblings.
  • The driver is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with a valid Class A, B, C or D driver license who occupies the front passenger seat.

An applicant holding an out-of-state driver license is exempt from the driver education / driving practice and instruction permit requirements. The applicant will be required to follow the restrictions stated above for the first six months that the original Class G license is held.

The holder of a graduated license is not required to obtain an operator license at age 18, but may choose to obtain one.

Note: If the teen driver has no outstanding extensions of the restricted driving period or suspension of driving privileges during the completion of the first six months of restricted driving, the teen may drive without restriction until eligible to apply for a Class D driver license beginning at age 18.
