Graduated Driver Licensing Law

 Limited Learner’s Permit involves parents, guardians, and/or other responsible drivers in the training of young drivers:

  • Must be 15 or older, complete driver’s education and obtain limited learner’s permit.
  • For at least 12 months, the Level 1 driver must be supervised by parent, guardian or other approved licensed driver who has been licensed at least 5 years.

  • All people in vehicle driven by Level 1 driver must wear a seat belt and only the supervisor can ride in the front seat.

  • For the first six months, a Level 1 driver may only drive from 5:00 AM to 9:00 PM with his/her supervisor.

  • For the second six months, a Level 1 driver may drive at any time with his/her supervisor.

  • The level 1 driver must have no violations during the last six months to graduate to the next level.

 Limited Provisional License protects young drivers during the nighttime hours when they are most at risk:

  • Unsupervised driving is allowed between 5:00 AM and 9:00 PM or when driving to or from work.

  • Unsupervised driving is allowed to or from an activity of a volunteer fire department, volunteer rescue squad, or volunteer emergency medical service if the driver is a member of the organization.

  • Supervised driving is allowed at any time.

  • All people in a vehicle driven by a Level 2 driver must wear a seat belt.

  • The Level 2 driver must have six months of violation-free driving to graduate to the next level.


 Full Provisional License rewards violation-free driving:

  • Unsupervised driving is allowed at any time.

  • Level 3 driver is subject to all other conditions of provisional license.
