Graduated Licensing started Sept 1, 2003
Those who receive their permit on or after February 22, 2010:
After you pass the road test and receive your junior operator license:
- A junior operator license driver will not be eligible for a full, unrestricted license until their junior license has been valid for 1 year or their 18th birthday, whichever period of time is longer.
- A junior operator license driver cannot operate a vehicle that has more than one non-family passenger who is under the age of 21 unless a parent, guardian, or a driving instructor
also rides in the vehicle. There is an exception to this rule if the passengers are immediate family members.
- Minimum age for a blue cardholder (passed driver's ed.) to receive an unrestricted license would raise from 17 to 17 ½.
- New drivers have to be violation free for one year.
- Your junior permit, license, or privileges will be suspended for 60 days if you are convicted of one serious traffic violation (following too closely, speeding, racing, reckless driving, driving under the influence, or if charged with an accident) or two other violations that were committed while you held a junior permit or license.
- Your junior permit, license, or privileges will be revoked for 60 days if you are convicted of one serious traffic violation (following too closely, speeding, racing, reckless driving, driving under the influence, or if charged with an accident) or two other violations within the first six months after your permit, license or privileges are restored after a suspension or revocation.
- When you are age 18, the DMV will issue you a senior license (Class D or Class M). If you have a valid junior license (Class DJ or MJ) you will automatically receive your senior license in the mail. If you pass your road test when you are age 18 you will automatically receive a senior license.
