The Graduated Driver’s License Program uses restrictions to keep young drivers safe on the road. Drivers in Texas below the age of 18 have three main regulations: no distractions while driving (including hands-free devices), no more than one passenger younger than 21 who isn’t a family member, and no driving between midnight and 5 a.m. You can learn more about the program and restrictions here.

Before your teen gets their learner’s permit, sit down with them to share some ground rules. Help them practice these as they work their way toward their license.
