Utah Law

On August 1, 2006, a new provision in the Utah driver license law went into effect as mandated by House Bill 363 (2006 legislative session). The change is as follows:
This bill provides that beginning on August 1, 2006, the Driver License Division shall issue a Learner Permit to a person who:
is at least 15 years of age,
has passed the knowledge test,
has passed the physical and mental fitness test,
and has paid the learner permit fee of $15.00.
These tests are taken at a Drivers License Division (DLD). The bill provides that an applicant with a Learner Permit may operate a motor vehicle if a person who is an approved driving instructor, the applicant’s parents or legal guardian, or a responsible adult who is willing to assume liability for the minor is occupying the seat next to the applicant.
The bill provides that an applicant that has been issued a Learner Permit may obtain an original or provisional Class D License upon completing a driver education program, passing the skills test required by the division, reaching 16 years of age, and paying the fee for an original or provisional Class D License application.
The bill also provides that a person 17 years of age or younger shall hold a Learning Permit for six months before applying for a provisional Class D License.
