    LEARNER'S PERMIT

    Did you know that if you are under 18 years of age, you need the consent and signature of an adult to apply for a permit and that the adult can be held responsible and liable should something happen while you are operating a motor vehicle.  Under the law, a person who signs the application of a minor for a permit or license can be held responsible and liable for damages caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of a minor while driving a motor vehicle.

    Applying for a Permit: A.R.S. §28-3154

    1. You must be at least 15 years and 7 months to apply for a permit for a Class D driver’s license. Beginning on January 1, 2000 you will be need to apply for a permit for a Class G Driver’s license. (House Bill 2438 changes the driver’s license for 16-18 year-olds from a Class D to a Class G license. This goes into effect on January 1, 2000.)
    2. You must pass a written exam to obtain a permit.
    3. A permit only entitles you, the permittee, to drive a motor vehicle, excluding a motorcycle, on public highways for 12 months. While you are driving you must:

      A.   Have your permit in your possession.
      B.  Be accompanied by a person with a driver’s license.
      C.  Have the licensed driver sitting beside you while you are driving.

    4. You must be at least 15 years and 7 months old to apply for a permit for a Class M license which is to operate a motorcycle (ARS 28-3156).
    5. A permit for a Class M license is valid for 6 months.

    Cancellation of license:  A.R.S. §28-3162
    A person or parent who signs that application of a minor for a drivers license may file a written request to cancel the driver license of a minor.

    Unlicensed minor liability:  A.R.S. §28-3163
    An owner or owners of a motor vehicle who causes or who knowingly permits an unlicensed minor to drive a vehicle on a highway or who gives and or furnishes a motor vehicle to an unlicensed minor are liable, along with the minor for damages caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of the minor in driving the vehicle.

    I think this is a stupid law! Having to wait till your 18? STUPID. I have been driving vehicles since I was 6 and can drive better than any other guy out there. I can controll any vehicle in any condition. I do offroading and can keep complete controll of even the hardest to controll vehicles. If this is true it shows how STUPID some laws are. NOW I have to wait till I'm 18 to get my liscence? When I drive better than even parents I know? STUPID STUPID LAW.

    I am NOT for raising the driving age. My daughter will be 16 next week, and I will limit her driving to and from school for a while. They have cousins in Missouri that started driving at 14, now that ridiculous.

    Most of your questions can be answered through your local/state driver's license office. Some rules on permit licenses differ from state to state.
