Unbelievable New 16 Year Olds Driving Laws for Alabama....

Getting your license used to be something everyone was looking forward to. Gone are the days of teenagers loading up all their buddies and going somewhere in Alabama.


Alabama Graduated Drivers License Law

Alabama has a Graduated Drivers License (GDL) Law which includes three stages: Learner's Permit, Restricted License, and Unrestricted License. An Alabama driver with a Restricted License (16-year-old drivers, as well as 17-year-old drivers licensed less than six months) may not: 
Have more than one non-family passenger other than the parent, guardian, or supervising licensed driver at least 21 years of age.
Operate a vehicle between 12:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., unless:
  • accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • accompanied by a licensed adult 21 years of age or older with parental consent.
  • going to or from their regular place of work.
  • going to or from a school-sponsored event.
  • going to or from a religious-sponsored event.
  • driving due to a medical, fire, or law enforcement emergency.
  • driving to or from hunting/fishing activities in possession of required licenses.
Drive while operating any non-essential handheld communication device.
Violations will result in an extension of the graduated license period and/or suspension of the license.

At some point your teen 'may' exceed or break this law so if you have any questions as to whether you are insured properly let me know, I would be glad to help answer your concerns.

Drive safely,
