• Age 16 for a Class MP instructional permit
• Age 16 for a Class D provisional license
• Age 17 for a Class M license

Applicants under 18 who have never been issued a license in another jurisdiction will not be eligible for a Class C or Class D license unless they have:

• Held an instructional permit for at least one year and one day
• Applicants who are 16 must complete an approved driver education course in a public driver training or licensed private school

The parent or legal guardian of applicants under 18 must sign a verification form that the supervised driving requirements have been met.
