Intermediate License
1. The Intermediate License is issued:
  • For the first 6 months, drive with no passengers under the age of 20 unless they are members of the immediate family.
  • For the remaining period, drive with no more than 3 passengers under the age of 20.
  • Do not drive between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. unless with a licensed driver age 25 or older.
  • Driving for agricultural purposes is an exception to the late night hours driving restriction.
2. After one year of driving without collisions or traffic citations:
  • Allowed to drive without limitation as to the time of day or the age and number of passengers
  • At age 18 the Intermediate Driver License automatically becomes a regular license
And, beginning with step 2 and until age 18:
  • If a driver commits a driving violation, or violation of license restrictions, the driver is sent a warning letter by the Department of Licensing.
  • If two driving violations are committed a letter suspending the driver for 6 months (or until age 18, whichever is shorter) is sent to the driver.
  • For a third driving violation the driver is suspended until age 18.
  • The driver's parents also receive a copy of any warning or suspension letter sent to the driver.
3. It should be noted that after a year of driving safely without a driving violation, offense or collision, that the driving restrictions expire and will not be reimposed. However, the driver is still subject to receiving the intermediate license warning letter and license suspension penalties until the age 18.
