What restrictions if any are there for new drivers?

There are no specific restrictions for new drivers, however as of January 1, 2012, all drivers will be banned from using a hand-held cell phone and text messaging while operating a motor vehicle. This is a primary offense, which means that law enforcement officers don’t need an additional reason to pull you over. The fines for violating this law are as follows:

• First Offense—$50 Fine
• Second Offense—$100 FINE
• Third or Subsequent Offense—$250

A higher fine may be imposed if you violate this law while driving in a traffic control zone.
