  • Your restricted permit
  • To be accompanied by a licensed adult driver 18 years old or older

The driver license examiner, at his or her discretion, may waive the test if you provide a certificate of completion card from a state-approved driver education course.

  • Drive only between the hours of 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Drive only within 50 miles (radius) of your home

This license will be automatically suspended if you're caught violating either restriction, or if convicted of a moving violation.

  • Drive only between the hours of 5 a.m. and 11 p.m.
  • You cannot drive with more than 1 passenger under 18 years old who is not from your immediate family

Restrictions may be lifted for school, work or medical needs, PROVIDED you're carrying a properly signed Intermediate Permit Driving Exception Form (Form FSGDL-02).
