What is a Learner Permit?
A driver education learner permit is a limited learner’s permit. After obtaining the driver education learner permit, a student may drive with a certified instructor or licensed parent/guardian throughout the duration of the driver education course. Upon completion of the course, with a signed permit, a student may drive with any adult 25 and older that holds a valid operator’s license.
