Graduated driver’s licensing
Graduated licensing in the State of Pennsylvania is outlined below:
- You may attempt to go for your junior license if you are
16 years of age to 18 years of age, after you have had your
permit for 6 months and driven 50 hours (which is to be certified
by your parents). When you have obtained this junior license,
you may not drive after 11:00 at night.
- If you have had your license for one full year and have had
no accidents that were your fault, or tickets, and have completed
the certified driver’s education program of 30 hours of

Pennsylvania for a senior driver’s license. You may then
drive past 11:00 with your senior license.
- You will automatically receive your senior license at the
age of 18 years.
