Maine GDL

Maine requires first-time drivers under 18 to undergo the phases of their Graduated Driver License law before getting a license without restrictions. This program is carefully designed to help young drivers improve their skills, gain experience and earn better judgment to safely operate motor vehicles.

Stage 1: Instruction Permit

A licensee must be at least 15 years old to apply for a Maine instruction permit. The permit must be held for a period of 6 months. During this time, the licensee must complete 35 hours of supervised driving --- 5 of which should be done at night.

Stage 2: Intermediate License

The minimum age for an intermediate license is 16 years old. The nighttime restriction during this phase is not being allowed to drive between the hours of midnight to 5 AM. For the first 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to have passengers in the vehicle.

Stage 3: Unrestricted/Regular License

The minimum age for applying for an unrestricted license is 16 years and 6 months.

During the instruction permit phase, the licensee must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 20 years old, and has held the license for two consecutive years. For applicants over 18, driver education is not required.
