New laws for teen drivers effective January 1, 2015

Effective January 1, 2015, every driver under the age of 18 who completes behind the wheel instruction and is testing for a provisional driver's license must submit a driving log showing the dates and lengths of driving time for each supervised trip.   The supervised driving log must be signed by a parent or guardian and presented at the time of the road test and submitted with the application for the provisional license. 

Parents/guardians have two options regarding the supervised driving log:

  1. Complete a supplemental parent class provided by a driver education program approved in Minnesota, and then submit a supervised driving log showing their teen has completed at least 40 hours (2,400 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours; OR
  2. If the parent/guardian chooses to not complete the supplemental parent class, the driving log must show that their teen has completed at least 50 hours (3,000 minutes) of supervised driving, 15 (900 minutes) of which are nighttime hours.
