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:
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.
