Vermont GDL Laws

In order for Vermont teen drivers to get a full unrestricted driver's license, they have to undergo Vermont's Graduated Driver License program, which consists of three phases.

Stage 1: Learner's Permit

A new driver must be at least 15 years old to apply for a learner's permit. The required holding period for a learner's permit is 12 months. The licensee must complete 40 hours of driving time during this phase, 10 of which should be for nighttime driving.

Stage 2: Restricted License

Before applying for a junior operator's license, the driver must be at least 16 years old. For the first 3 months, the licensee is not allowed to have any passengers, for the next 3 months, the licensee is not allowed to have any passengers except for family members.

Stage 3: Full Operator's License

In order to get a full operator’s license in Vermont, the licensee must be at least 16 years and 6 months old.

To apply for a Learner's Permit, an individual (who is 15, 16, or 17 years old) must have maintained a "clean" driving record in the previous two (2) years. An individual fifteen years of age or older may operate a motor vehicle if they hold a valid learner's permit and are accompanied by a licensed and unimpaired parent or guardian, a licensed and unimpaired driver education instructor or a licensed and unimpaired person at least twenty-five years of age.

Behind-The-Wheel Road Test

"What I liked about the course was I was able to visualize the driving test. I was still nervous, but I knew what the driving examiner was looking for and it really helped with my confidence. I don't think I would have passed my first time with out this course."
