So you've taken your first step towards becoming a new driver in Utah? Congratulations!
As you probably already know, driving is a valuable skill, but can also be extremely dangerous. Therefore, to help new teen drivers develop safe driving habits during their first few years behind the wheel, the State of Utah has implemented a graduated driver license program for Utah drivers who are under the age of 18.
We’ve summarized a few things you’ll need to know as you begin the process of becoming a licensed driver in Utah.
You will be able to apply for an instruction permit in Utah after your 15th birthday.
At the driver's license office, you will need to first pass a medical and eye exam, and then the written test. Then you will be issued an instruction permit.
When you're ready to upgrade to an intermediate license, gather up the documents you took with you to the driver license office last time along with your instruction permit and head back down to the driver license office. You will need to pass a road test to get your intermediate driver's license.
After you turn 18, all of these restrictions are lifted.
State law requires that you have at least a certain amount of auto insurance/liability coverage on any vehicle you drive. The minimum amount of liability coverage required in Utah is as follows:
Driving without the required amount of auto insurance is a crime. If you are found to be driving while uninsured, you risk losing your license and paying a hefty fine.
Drinking while under the influence of alcohol is strictly prohibited in Utah, and the law is strictly enforced.
Upon your FIRST Utah DUI conviction, you will face the following penalties:
Further DUI convictions will result in even more severe penalties, including extended jail time, fines, community service, and the revocation of your driver's license.
Utah currently prohibits teen-aged drivers from using a cell phone while they are driving.
