What restrictions if any are there for new drivers?

If you are a licensed teen driver between the ages of 16 and 17, the following restrictions apply:

• During the first six months you can only have one passenger in your vehicle who is a parent or legal guardian at least 25 years old, or a licensed driving instructor or a person who is 20 years old and has had a license for four consecutive years.

• During the second six months, you can only have passengers who are immediate family members, a licensed driving instructor or a person who is 20 years old and has had a license for four consecutive years.

• You may not operate any vehicle that is a van-pool vehicle or requires a public passenger transportation permit.

• You may not transport more passengers than the number of seat belts in the vehicle.

• You may not transport any passenger on a motorcycle for six months after obtaining a motorcycle endorsement.

The DMV has the authority to suspend a learner’s permit or driver’s license if you violate any of the teen driving restrictions.
