Nighttime & Passenger Limitations

Time.jpg

Two questions we get a lot from parents at the driving school when their child receives their license:

"When is it too late for my child to be out driving? And how many people can my child have in the car with them? "

Well we are here to set the record straight!

ANYONE UNDER 18 IS SUBJECT TO A NIGHTTIME LIMITATIONS: 
Driving is prohibited from Midnight-5AM. There are exceptions to this law if the provisional driver is: 

  • Accompanied by a licensed driver at least 25 years of age.

  • Driving between home and work. 

  • Driving between home and a school event for which the school does NOT provide transportation. 

  • Driving for employment purposes. 

                   

               This law is lifted once your child is 18 years of age


PASSENGER LIMITATIONS:

FIRST 6 MONTHS OF LICENSURE: 

  • Only ONE passenger under the age of 20 years is permitted,unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

SECOND 6 MONTHS OF LICENSURE:

  • No more than THREE passengers under the age of 20 are permitted, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

RULE OF THUMB: Every 6 months = a new passenger added.
 

KEEP IN MIND:

  • Passengers under 20 who are members of the provisional driver's immediate family are permitted during BOTH time periods. Family members MUST have the same last name. A police officer does not have time to look up your family tree.
