What is Graduated Licensing?

Graduated Licensing is a system implemented on Sept 1, 2003 stating that those who receive their permit on or after February 22, 2010 must adhere to the following regulations:

  • Permit holders need 50 hours of supervised driving that includes 15 hours of driving after sunset before they can schedule a road test.
  • There is a minimum wait period of 6 months before a permit holder can schedule a road test.
  • No one other than the permit driver and the supervising driver may occupy the front seat. Also, all people in the car must wear seat belts.
  • 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.
  • New drivers have to be violation free for one year. A 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. Note that the license or privileges are restored after a suspension or revocation.
