What You Need to Know About Modesto California Licensing Procedures

Starting the process of applying for your Modesto California learner's permit or first Modesto California driver license can seem very daunting at first, so it helps to have as much information handy as possible. Modesto California has a graduated driver license program for Modesto California drivers ages 15 and a half to 18, and there are a number of things we want you to be aware of to make sure that applying for your Modesto California driving license goes as smoothly as possible.  So let's begin.

 

Types of Licenses

You should be made familiar with the three basic types of Modesto California driver's licenses. They are: Modesto California learner's permit, Modesto California teen driver's license, and the regular Modesto California driver's license. Here's a simple outline of the requirements and restrictions for each license type:

Modesto California Learner's permit
  • must be at least 15 and a half years of age, but under 18
  • must be accompanied by a person at least 25 years of age who also has a Modesto California driver's license
  • cannot drive with passengers under 21 (except siblings)
Modesto California Teen Driver's License
  • must be 18 or have had learner's permit at least 6 months
  • late night driving is restricted (see details below)
  • requires passing a road test
  • cannot transfer passengers under 21 until 1-year probationary period has passed
Modesto California Driver's License
  • must be 18 or have had teen driver's license for one year
  • no further restrictions apply
Now that you've been introduced to the different types of licenses, here's what you need to know about applying for each one.

Modesto California Learner Permit or Modesto California Provisional License

Although you have to be at least 16 to apply for your first Modesto California driver's license, when you're 15 and a half you can apply for a Modesto California provisional license, otherwise known as a Modesto California learner's permit.

So if you're 15 and a half or older, take the following to your local Modesto California DMV.

 

At your local Modesto California DMV, you'll have to pass a vision exam, as well as a traffic laws and sign test.  Once you pass the written exam and vision test, you'll receive your Modesto California instructional driver license, or Modesto California learner's permit. This license will enable you to practice driving providing you have someone 25 years or older in the seat next to you as you learn. However, the driver accompanying you must have a Modesto California driver's license. You can find a few sample tests on the Modesto California DMV website here.

 

Modesto California Teen Driver's License

If you're 18 or have had your Modesto California learner's permit for at least 6 months, you're ready to try for a Modesto California teen driver's license! But before you do so, you must complete the following requirements:

  • Be able to provide proof of financial responsibility (more on this later).
  • Completed driver education
  • 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a professional driving instructor.
  • 50 hours of practice with an adult 25 or older (at least 10 of these practice hours must have been done at night)
  • Have your Modesto California learner's license for at least 6 months

Because you only get three chances to pass the road test, we strongly suggest getting as much driving practice as you can!  Any 16 year old applicants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when taking the Modesto California driver's license road test.  After you pass your driving test, you'll receive an interim Modesto California license (valid for 60 days) until your Modesto California photo license comes in the mail. If you fail the Modesto California driving test, you have to wait two weeks before taking it again.

Modesto California Teen Driver License Restrictions and Penalties

There are several restrictions you need to be aware of regarding your Modesto California learner's license or Modesto California provisional drivers license.

If you only have your Modesto California learner's permit, you must be supervised by a parent, legal guardian, or person over 25 who has at least one year of driving experience. The person who is supervising you must sit in the front passenger seat. In addition, you cannot drive with passengers under 21 (except brothers or sisters).

If you have a teen driver's license but are under 18, you are not permitted to drive a vehicle between 11AM and 5AM for the first twelve months unless have a parent, legal guardian with you. Also, you cannot transfer passengers under 21 until your 1 year probationary period has passed.

Exceptions to this restriction are made in the following cases:

  • You have a medical necessity
  • You are participating in a school activity
  • You have an employment necessity
  • You must transport a family member
  • You are an emancipated minor.

If you have further questions, go to the teen page on the Modesto California DMV website.

Modesto California Auto Insurance Modesto California Financial Responsibility Laws

Once you receive your Modesto California drivers license, you're almost ready to drive. What else is need? Auto insurance, of course. Any vehicle registered in Modesto California must be covered by liability insurance. The minimum coverage is $15,000 for personal injury and $30,000 for 2 or more persons, and $5,000 for property damage. If you are found to be driving without Modesto California mandatory liability insurance, you could face a fine of up to $500 plus court costs. If you are involved in an accident and cannot provide proof of insurance, your Modesto California learner's permit or Modesto California provisional license may be suspended.

Modesto California Drunk Driving, Cell Phone, and Text Messaging Laws

As a new Modesto California driver, it's important that you learn and take seriously the Modesto California drunk driving, cell phone, and text messaging laws. Upon your first Modesto California DUI offense, you face:

  • Imprisonment of 96 hours to 6 months
  • A fine of $390 to $1000
  • Your license will also be suspended for 6 months
  • Also, you will have to complete a Driving Under the Influence Program
  • And may be ordered to install an Ignition Interlock Device.

Further Modesto California DUI convictions will result in increased jail time, community service, fines, and Modesto California license suspension or even Modesto California license revocation. As a young driver, now is the time to learn good habits, and one of the most important of these is DON'T EVER DRIVE DRUNK!

Studies show a strong link between text messaging and traffic accidents. Therefore, as of September 2008 the Modesto California Legislature passed a ban on text messaging while driving. Driving while texting carries a fine of $20 for a first offense and $50 for each additional offense. No points will be issued on your Modesto California drivers license. Drivers under 18 are also prohibited from using a cell phone or wireless device from driving. All drivers must use a hands free device for their cell phone while driving in Modesto California.

 

Modesto California Online Driver Education

As stated above, any 16 year old applicants who would like to apply for a Modesto California driver license must have completed at least 50 driving hours (signed by a parent, legal guardian, or certified driving instructor) and at least 6 hours of an approved Modesto California online driver education course. Check with your local Modesto California DMV regarding approved online driver education classes.
