What restrictions come with my driver’s permit?

The State of Idaho has the following restrictions for teens that have an instruction permit or driver’s license:

Supervised Instruction Permit
• You must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and occupies the passenger seat next to you at all times.

• All occupants in the vehicle must wear a seat belt or child restraint if applicable at all times.

• You must have the Supervised Instruction Permit in your immediate possession while driving.

• You must observe all the laws regarding drugs, alcohol or other intoxicating substances.

Class D License Restriction for Underage Drivers
• If you are under 16 years of age, you can only drive during the daytime unless accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years or older and occupies the passenger seat next to you at all times.

• If you are under 17 years of age, you cannot have more than one passenger under 17 in the vehicle during the first six months of having your license.

Once you have met the requirements of the Graduated Driver’s License program, you must pass the knowledge test, skills test and vision test to obtain a driver’s license. These tests cannot be taken sooner than six months from the date you completed the driver’s training course or until you reach age 17, whichever comes first. If you fail the written test or skill test, you must wait three days before taking a retest.
