The State of Alaska allows people between the ages of 16 and 17 to obtain a Class D provisional license if they meet the following requirements:
• The applicant has held a learner’s instruction permit for at least six months.
• The applicant can provide proof from a parent or guardian that they have completed 40 hours of driving, with 10 hours of driving in challenging conditions, such as rain, snow or nighttime driving.
• The person has not been convicted of a traffic violation within the six months prior to applying for the off-highway license.
Applicants who have an off-highway provisional license are exempt from the normal restrictions that apply to people who hold a regular provisional license.
