3. Obtaining Your License/ID Card

A person who holds a Learner's license must be accompanied by a licensed driver, 21 years of age or older, who occupies the front passenger seat closest to the right of the driver. Drivers can only drive during daylight hours the first three months from the original issue date and must be accompanied by a person 21 years of age or older, holding a valid driver license, occupying the front passenger seat.

After the first three months, drivers may operate a vehicle from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a person 21 years of age or older, holding a valid driver license, occupying the front passenger seat. Drivers with a Learner's license are ineligible for a motorcycle endorsement.
