As of January 1, 2007, Joshua’s Law went into effect. This means that drivers who are 16 and want to obtain a Class D driver’s license must do the following:
• You must successfully complete a driver education course approved by the Department of Driver Services.
• You must complete at least 40 hours of supervised driving, including at least 6 hours driving at night.
Drivers who have not completed an approved driver’s education course will not be eligible for a Class D license until they turn 17.
