When does my 6 month permit period start?

The six-month permit period starts on the day that you receive your temps from the Deputy Registrar License Agency. This is not to be confused with the 6-month expiration for taking the Aceable course.

If you have a permit and are between the ages of 15 and a half and 16 years old, you’re only allowed to drive if you have a licensed parent or guardian with you in the passenger seat.

However, your parent or guardian can get you an In Loco Parentis Affidavit, which allows a permit holder in this age range to drive with another specified licensed adult who is at least 21 years old or older.

This Affidavit needs to be notarized and the permit holder- you- needs to have it at all times when driving with the adult listed on it.

If you have a permit and are at least 16 years old or older, you’re only allowed to drive if you have a licensed adult who is at least 21 years old or older with you in the passenger seat.

EXTREMELY HIGH SUMMER VOLUMES WITH COVID - Starting in June and expecting to continue through September, we are experiencing extremely high volumes across chats, phones and email. We have limited phone and chat support hours, and are working hard to serve every student with care. Phone wait times can be up to 30 minutes during peak times, and while we respond to every student contact that we receive, we are currently averaging 2-3 business days to respond. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. For all Coronavirus Impact Updates, please click here.
