Georgia has a variety of laws, restrictions and regulations related to young drivers.  The newest legislation is called "Joshua's Law".  Teen drivers must meet the following requirements:

To get a Class D driver's license at age sixteen (16):

  • You must have completed a driver education course approved by the Department of Driver Services and
  • You also must have completed a cumulative total of at least forty (40) hours of other supervised driving experience, including at least six (6) hours at night.

If you have not completed an approved driver's education course, you cannot get your Class D driver's license until you reach age seventeen (17). Remember, forty (40) hour of driving experience, including six (6) hours of driving at night, is always required for a Class D driver's license.
