Have an instruction permit for at least 6 months. Get at least 50 hours of supervised driving practice (including 10 hours at night) with someone who has been licensed for 5 years or more. Not have any traffic violations within 6 months of applying for the license. Not have been convicted of any alcohol or drug offense while holding an instruction permit. If you’re less than 16 years old, you must have had your instruction permit for at least 4 months and be within 60 days of your 16th birthday. If you’re between 16 and 18 years old, you must have had your instruction permit for at least 4 months from the date of issue.
If you’re under 18, you’ll be issued an intermediate driver license and must follow these special rules:
For the first 6 months, you can’t drive with passengers under the age of 20 unless they’re members of your immediate family (such as a spouse, child, stepchild, or siblings, both by birth and marriage).
For the next 6 months, you can’t carry more than 3 passengers who are under 20 years old and aren’t members of your immediate family.
For the first 12 months, you can’t drive between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. unless you’re with a licensed driver age 25 or older. The only exception to this rule is driving for agricultural purposes (transporting farm products or supplies under the direction of a farmer as described in RCW 46.20.070).
You aren’t permitted to use wireless devices while driving, even with a hands-free device. This includes talking on cell phones and sending or receiving text messages. You may only use a wireless device to report an emergency. All restrictions are lifted after one year from the date the student obtains a license unless the teen is involved in a crash or has a moving violation, in which case the restrictions remain in place until the student is 18 years old.
These restrictions are extremely effective in reducing injury and death to teenage drivers. Parents believe that the restrictions don’t go far enough and they decide to impose their own additional restrictions on their young drivers. For current laws, you can refer to a copy of the Washington State Driver Guide or the guidelines posted on the WA State DOL’s website http://www.dol.wa.gov/
