Learner’s License Permits and Out of State Drivers

fabian-albert-KqpoiWI4-00-unsplashSpring and summer are around the corner, which means there may be more people visiting Florida. These people may decide to forego flying in favor of driving and being around strangers for an extended period. This brings up an important question to consider for any out-of-state drivers that may only have their learner’s license permit: can they legally drive in Florida?

Learner’s permit vacationers can breathe a sigh of relief as they can indeed drive legally in Florida with the permit. However, they should remember that they are bound by and must abide by the same learner’s license permit rules as that of a Florida resident. This means, for example, that a licensed driver must accompany the driver with the learner’s permit while they are operating the vehicle.

If you’re planning on navigating the South Florida roads this spring and summer, please exercise caution and remain at all times. South Florida is well-known for having drivers that may often be distracted or fail to follow the rules of the road and proper driving etiquette.
