Traffic crashes are a leading killer of Minnesota teens.  A major reason is that teens are the most inexperienced drivers on the road. They're more likely to take risks, be distracted by teen passengers and not wear their seat belts as much as other motorists and passengers.

New Requirements in the Graduated Driver Licensing Law

  • Starting January 1, 2015, there are new requirements to get a provisional license if the teen is under 18. Teens must provide a supervised driving log when taking their driving test that's signed by a parent. The log must verify they drove under the supervision of an adult licensed driver for a minimum of 50 hours, of which 15 hours were at night.
  • The practice requirement drops to 40 hours, of which 15 hours were at night, if parents attend a parent awareness class and submit their certificate of completion for the parent class at their teens' road test.
  • We encourage parents to practice with their kids well beyond the new minimum requirements of the law to ensure they're prepared to drive in the many driving and weather conditions they will eventually experience on their own.
