Graduated Driver License - Night time Driving Restriction

 

What are the new "night time driving restrictions" under the new GDL provisions?

Effective January 1, 2008, drivers under age 18 may not operate a motor vehicle between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

 

Won't the earlier driving restriction times on nights and weekends prevent me from getting a job or going to after-school activities?

Exemptions in the law allow new drivers to drive to and from employment or school-sanctioned activities outside the restriction times.

 

Will I lose my driver's license if I am convicted of violating the night time driving restrictions?

Yes. Effective January 1, 2008, your driver's license will be suspended if you are convicted of violating the new driving curfews.
