Question: If I have a driving permit, how old does the other licensed driver in the car have to be?

Answer: According to Arizona Law, the licensed driver in the vehicle with the permitee must occupy the seat beside the permitee who is driving the vehicle and must hold a class A, B, C, or D driver's license. The law does not specify the required age of the licensed driver, however people must generally be 18 years old to have a class A, B, C, or D driver's license.

A person with a driver's permit may also want to check to see if the car insurance policy on the car and driver specify who the licensed driver can be. Legally, a licensed teen driver could accompany a permitee, but the insurance policy covering the vehicle may require the parent or legal guardian of the permitee to be in the car while the person with the permit is driving.
