Your Instruction Permit is considered Stage 1 of the Minnesota Graduated License Law and requires successful completion of an approved driver education course. You must complete 30 hours (10 for nighttime driving) of supervised driving in order to be eligible for Stage 2, which is the Provisional License. At Stage 2, after you have held your Instruction Permit for six months you are eligible to take your road test when you are at least 16 years of age.

The road test will last approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Your ability to drive your vehicle safely in a variety of traffic situations will be tested. A Minnesota DPS driver license examiner will administer the road test and you will need to supply your own vehicle. Before taking you out on the road the examiner will check to see if the car you are driving has a current registration and proof of vehicle insurance.

Minnesota GDL Laws

Minnesota licenses young drivers using their Graduated Driver License system in which each subsequent stage eases up certain restrictions from the last one. From an instruction permit to full licensure, new drivers are gradually introduced into being safe drivers.

Stage 1: Instruction Permit

A licensee must be at least 15 years old to apply for a Minnesota instruction permit. The holding period for the permit is 6 months. During this time, the licensee must complete 30 hours of supervised driving --- 10 of which should be done at night.

Stage 2: Provisional License

The minimum age for a provisional license is 16 years old. The nighttime restriction during this stage is not being allowed to drive between the hours of midnight to 5 AM. For the first 6 months, the licensee is restricted to 1 passenger under the age of 20. For the second 6 months, the licensee may carry no more than 3 passengers younger than 20.

Stage 3: Full License

Nighttime driving restrictions are lifted at the age of 16 years and 6 months. Passenger restrictions are lifted once the licensee reaches the age of 17 years old.

Before applying for an instruction permit, the licensee must have completed 30 hours of classroom instruction and be enrolled in behind-the-wheel instruction.
