Graduated Driver License - General Information

Graduated driver licensing (GDL) requires teens 15 to 18 years old to learn to drive in 3 stages.  Driving privileges increase gradually as teens successfully pass through each stage of the licensing program.  These stages are:

  1. A supervised Learner Permit
  2. A Junior Operator License
  3. A full Operator License (issued after successful completion of all previous driving requirements)
