Teen driving limits in Arizona

States like Arizona have put limitations on teen driving practices which has helped reduce the number of fatal crashes that take place on the roads. According to Arizona driving laws, teen drivers are eligible for a graduated or an instructional driving permit. For a driver to be able to qualify for the graduated permit in Arizona, they much be at least 15 years and 6 months of age. The teen applicant is also required to pass the necessary written tests. Any teen driver holding a graduated permit in Arizona is to be accompanied by a class A, B, C, or D licensed driver, with the licensed driver sitting in the passenger seat next to the teen driver.

Class “G” Graduated Drivers License in Arizona

For a teen driver to qualify for a Glass ‘G’ license, also called a graduated drivers license, the teen must have held an Arizona instructional permit for a period of at least six months. Alternately, the teen can possess a valid driver’s license from another state. In Arizona, a teen may be issued a graduated driver’s license if they are between 16 and 18 years old.

Once a Glass ‘G’ or graduated license is issued, certain restrictions have to be followed. The teen cannot drive from 12:00 am through 5:00 am without being accompanied by a legal guardian or parent. However, there may be an exception to this rule if the teen is driving to or from a sanctioned religious event, a school sponsored event, a family emergency, or a place of employment.

There are other restrictions in place too. For example, the teen driver cannot drive with more than one passenger under the age of 18 years in the vehicle. Again, there are exceptions to this rule too. If the teen is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, who holds a valid driver’s license and is sitting in the passenger seat next to the teen, then the teen may be able to travel with young siblings in the car.

The teen applicant is also required to complete a MVD approved driver’s education course. If the course is not completed, then the legal guardian or parent of the teen is required to submit a certified document stating that the teen applicant has completed at least 30 hours of supervised driving practice. From this 30 hours of supervised practice, at least 10 hours must be of nighttime driving.

After successfully completing 6 months of restricted driving, the teen may be able to drive unrestricted until they reach the age of 18 years. After turning 18 years of age, the teen driver can apply for an unrestricted Class ‘D’ license.

Arizona Motorcycle License Permit

In Arizona, if a teen wishes to receive a Motorcycle Class ‘M’ permit, then the applicant must be at least 15 years and 6 months of age. The teen also needs parental permission to be able to get a Class ‘M’ permit or driver license. To begin the process, the teen and parent is required to supply the necessary application documents. The teen driver is also required to pass a vision and written test and must have completed at least 30 hours of supervised practice. Alternately, the teen driver should have completed a certified motorcycle safety course.

brian sloan on the cover of attorney at law magazine

“I am one of only a handful of Phoenix DUI Lawyers that focuses solely on DUI Defense representation.”

I have spent my entire career SOLELY focused on Arizona DUI Defense Representation, having personally defended more than 4,400 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) clients in the past 19+ years.

If you’re looking for a Divorce Attorney, Tax Attorney, Civil Attorney, etc., I can comfortably say, "I’m not the one for you." I ONLY defend DUI cases in most of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Coming up with traditional, as well as outside-the-box motions and defenses for my clients, often with good results, is the hallmark of my practice.

Lawyers that say they are "aggressive" or "will fight for you" are a dime a dozen. They use these phrases because it is a proven advertising phrase. Being "aggressive" isn’t the same as being good, and is often used to put on a show to hide the fact that they aren’t doing anything meaningful for the client.

The same is true for the Lawyers claiming to do DUI Defense, and Criminal Cases, and Accident Cases, and Divorces, etc. A Jack-of-all-Trades is a master of none! By handling all sorts of cases, they take away from their ability to truly focus on DUIs, and keep up-to-date on the latest changes in DUI Defense Representation.

What I offer is intelligent, quality DUI Defense at an exceptional price. Unlike many other law firms, if you hire The Law Offices of Brian D. Sloan, you actually get me representing you, doing all the work, and working the case. You aren’t hiring one guy with all the experience, but getting the underling with very little knowledge or experience.

I work seven days a week on my client’s cases, and spend hours laying all my thoughts out for my clients in writing, so they can understand their options, and my recommendations. No other DUI Lawyer in the state does this. I try to do what I can to go above-and-beyond for my clients. I hate when the businesses I deal with nickel-and-dime me with hidden costs, and I take pride in not doing that to my clients.

I have not only taught other lawyers how to do DUI Defense Representation at statewide seminars, but I have produced DUI Legal Guides used by defense lawyers across Arizona.

I am one of Arizona's most award-winning DUI Defense Lawyers, as well as being recognized nationally. I was the only DUI Defense Lawyer in the United States named a "Power Lawyer" in a 2022 issue of USA Today

There are no other private Lawyers in Arizona that have personally defended more DUI cases than I have. And as a bonus, I offer a very reasonable flat rate for my legal services, with a payment plan, and without any hidden charges. This guarantees that I offer some of the most competitive rates among all Arizona DUI Attorneys, while being a well-documented and preeminent leader in the field of DUI Defense Representation.

Over the years, countless people have come to me after discovering that their first lawyer made a mistake, gave them false hope or false promises, or simply took their money and didn't do much to advance their case. And you would be surprised at how often this happens.

So, instead of wasting time and money on the wrong DUI Defense Attorney, do yourself a favor and get the proven and well-recognized best DUI Lawyer in Phoenix and the surrounding areas of Maricopa County.

You can reach me on my personal cell phone at 480-720-7839 for a Free ‘In Depth’ Consultation.

I personally defend DUI cases in urban Maricopa County City, Town, and Justice Courts, including:

Ahwatukee / Agua Fria / Arcadia Biltmore / Avondale / Buckeye / Chandler / Country Meadows / Desert Ridge / Dreamy Draw / Downtown / East Mesa / El Centro / Encanto / Gilbert / Glendale / Goodyear / Guadalupe / Highland / Kyrene / Litchfield Park / Maryvale / McDowell Mountain / Mesa / Moon Valley / North Mesa / Peoria / Phoenix / Queen Creek / San Marcos / San Tan / South Mountain / Scottsdale / Tempe / University Lakes / West McDowell / West Mesa / White Tank

For any other Courts in the State of Arizona, including Felony cases, I would recommend my associates on The Arizona DUI Team, whom I work closely with, but I am not the one personally representing the client.
