Nighttime & Passenger Limitations
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
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.
