Teen Drivers

Graduated License (Class G)

If you are at least 16, but less than 18, years of age you will be issued a graduated driver license that is valid to operate any vehicle that does not require a motorcycle or commercial driver license.

To apply for a graduated license you must have held an Arizona instruction permit for at least six months. The permit must be valid at the time of application. You must also have satisfactorily completed an Arizona driver education program approved by MVD, or your parent or guardian must certify in writing that you have completed at least 30 hours of supervised driving practice, including at least 10 hours at night.

Note: A parent or legal guardian will be required to assist a teen driver in applying for and earning a Graduated Driver License. An explanation of a parent's or legal guardian's roles and responsibilities can be found here.

If you hold a current and valid out-of-state driver license, you are exempt from the driver education/driving practice and instruction permit requirements.
