    Question: I'll be 16 on October 20th. I got my permit on May 23...Do I have to wait until October 23 to get my Driver's License, or can I get it on my birthday

    Answer: A new law went into effect on July 18, 2000 that applies to this situation. You must have an instructional permit (learner's permit) for at least five months before you can even apply for a Driver's License.

    Not only do you have to wait 5 months after you get your permit, but while you have your permit you must complete an approved driver education program which includes behind-the-wheel practice, or have your Parent/guardian certify that you have completed 25 hours of supervised driving practice, including at least 5 hours of nighttime driving.

    So let's say you turn 16 and do not even have a permit yet. When you get your permit, you'll have to hold it for 5 months until you can apply for a Driver's license. Just because you're 16 does not mean you can skip the Permit stage under this new Arizona Law. Only when you turn 18 will you be able to apply for a driver's license without first holding a permit for 5 months and completing driver's training.

    Read more about the Graduated Driver's License in the LawForKids.org Driver's License Law Section.

    There is also a great deal of information on the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles.
