  • Florida, permit at 15 license at 16. They have to be in school, they cannot be a drop out or they can't get one. Same goes if they get caught with tobacco (which I find funny, we have kids robbing houses, yet they can still drive.)

  • In Colorado if they take a drivers ed class they can get it at 15. If not then 15 1/2. There are tons of restrictions the 1st year. The 1st 6 months no one but a licence driver following that licence driver & family the next 6 months. All kinds of small ones in there too. These r the most important ones.

  • Oregon, 16 and I believe for the first year they can't have friends in the car unless an adult is present.

  • At 15 they can get a permit and have so many driving hours then when they turn 16 they can get a drivers license. Yes, there is restrictions - no driving after curfew hours unless you working or doing a school function. No one under the age of 16 in the car with them.

  • CA - permit at 15.5, license at 16..... but no kids in the car until you have had your license one full year.

  • It depends, if the kids live in the country they can get a school permit at 14 so they can drive to school.
    However in town they can get their permit at 15, and have to complete so many hours before they can get their license at 16.
    They can not drive after curfew and only one person 16 or younger in the car alone with them.
