Oregon Provisional License Restrictions for Drivers Under 18

The State of Oregon has a provisional licensing program to help teen drivers stay safe on the roads.

Oregon issues a provisional Class C instruction permit to drivers 15–17 years old, which allows you to operate a vehicle only while accompanied by a licensed driver at least 21 years of age in the front seat. A valid instruction permit must be held for at least 6 months prior to being eligible for a provisional driver's license beginning at age 16.

Drivers 16–17 years of age who have held a valid instruction permit for at least 6 months, have completed the required minimum 50 hours of supervised driving experience, and have passed the drive test and vision screening test may be eligible for a provisional license, which allows them to drive under the following restrictions for their first year:

  1. For the first year of the provisional license, teens may not drive between midnight and 5 AM unless driving to and from home or work, to and from home and school, or when accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 25 years of age.
  2. For the first 6 months of the provisional license, teens are not allowed to carry any passengers under the age of 20 except for immediate family members.
  3. For the second 6 months of the provisional license, teens are allowed no more than 3 passengers under the age of 20 except for immediate family members.

All persons under 18 years of age are not allowed to operate a motor vehicle while using a mobile communication device.
