Driver’s Education designed with you in mind

That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.

Your Guide to Edwardsville Illinois Licensing Procedures and Online Driver Education

On behalf of the State of Edwardsville Illinois, we welcome you to the world of driving! The process of applying for your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit or first Edwardsville Illinois driver license can be as daunting as it is exciting, and so we have put together this short guide to help you through the process

Edwardsville Illinois has a Graduated Driver License Program for Edwardsville Illinois teen drivers, and there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure that applying for your Edwardsville Illinois driving license goes as smoothly as possible. So let's not waste anymore time!

Edwardsville Illinois Instructional Permit or Edwardsville Illinois Learner Permit

When you turn 15, you can finally apply for an Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit, otherwise known as an Edwardsville Illinois supervised instruction permit. You must have your Edwardsville Illinois learner's license on your person at all times and a licensed driver who is at least 21 years of age must be sitting in the front passenger seat at all times. In order to apply for your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit, you'll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be 15-17 years old
  • Enroll in a State of Edwardsville Illinois approved Driver Education Program
  • Study the Edwardsville Illinois driver handbook thoroughly
  • Take the required personal information to your local Edwardsville Illinois Driver Service Center

Once you arrive at the Edwardsville Illinois Driver Service Center, you'll have to:

  • pay a $20 processing fee
  • take a vision test
  • pass a written exam

If you survived, then give yourself a pat on the back: you just earned your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit, which is valid for 2 years.  After you've had your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit for 9 months, you can apply for your Edwardsville Illinois driver's license.

Your First Edwardsville Illinois Driver's License or Edwardsville Illinois Provisional License

If you've gotten this far, you're well on your way to becoming a full-fledged Edwardsville Illinois driver. In order to apply for your first Edwardsville Illinois provisional driver license, you'll need to meet the following requirements:

  • keep your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit for 9 months in good standing
  • complete the mandatory Edwardsville Illinois driver education program
  • maintain 8 passing grades in the two most recent school semesters
  • written certification from your parent that you completed the required 50 driving hours
  • these 50 hours must include 10 hours at night

At the Edwardsville Illinois Driver Service Center, you'll present your Edwardsville Illinois learner's license and the required personal information. Then comes a three-part driver license exam, which includes the dreaded road test (which should be no problem if you've done well up to this point). If you survive, then a second pat on the back is in order: you've just earned your Edwardsville Illinois driver license!

Once you turn 17 and have held your Edwardsville Illinois provisional without any traffic violations, you will earn your Edwardsville Illinois full license. Congratulations!

Edwardsville Illinois Teen Driver License Restrictions and Penalties

Driving is a privilege, not a right. The Graduated Driver License Program gives you a chance to "earn" your way to full driving privileges. Until then, there are several restrictions you need to keep in mind regarding your Edwardsville Illinois learner's license or Edwardsville Illinois driver's license.

Edwardsville Illinois Learner's Permit Restrictions: With an Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit, you must always be supervised by a licensed driver who is at least 21 and in the front passenger seat. Furthermore:

  • Always keep your Edwardsville Illinois provisional license on hand
  • All passengers must wear seat belts
  • Observe all of the alcohol and intoxicating substance laws
  • You are allowed to drive with your permit until 10 p.m. on weeknights, and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Edwardsville Illinois Provisional License Restrictions:

  • Always have your Edwardsville Illinois provisional license on hand
  • All occupants must wear seat belts
  • Observe all of the alcohol and intoxicating substance laws
  • Also, no driving between 10PM to 6 AM Sunday through Thursday or 11PM to 6AM Friday through Saturday unless you're accompanied by your parent or guardian is present

If you're caught driving outside the restricted hours, your Edwardsville Illinois driver license could be suspended. Drivers under 18 should also be aware that you may face Edwardsville Illinois driver's license suspension for insufficient high school attendance.But cheer up: as soon as you turn 18, these restrictions are lifted!

Edwardsville Illinois Auto Insurance Edwardsville Illinois Financial Responsibility Laws

Once you receive your Edwardsville Illinois driver's license, you're ready to drive, right? Not quite: traffic accidents--minor and major--can happen to even the most seasoned drivers. Thus, any vehicle registered in Edwardsville Illinois must be covered by liability insurance. The minimum coverage is:

  • $20,000 for personal injury
  • $40,000 per person
  • $15,000 for property damage.

If you are ever caught driving without Edwardsville Illinois mandatory liability insurance, you could be fined $500 for a first time offense. For subsequent offenses, you will receive a four month vehicle registration suspension. And, if you're involved in an accident and cannot provide proof of insurance, your Edwardsville Illinois learner's permit or Edwardsville Illinois provisional license could be suspended. Do NOT get on Edwardsville Illinois roads in an uninsured vehicle!

Edwardsville Illinois Drunk Driving, Cell Phone, and Text Messaging Laws

As you're probably aware, a drunk and/or distracted driver is a dangerous driver. As a new Edwardsville Illinois driver, it's vital that you learn the Edwardsville Illinois drunk driving, cell phone, and text messaging laws.

Upon your first conviction of a Edwardsville Illinois DUI (0.08 blood alcohol level), you will face the following penalties:

  • Jail sentence of up to 1 year
  • Edwardsville Illinois license suspension of at least 1 year
  • Breath alcohol ignition interlock device installation
  • Up to a $2500 fine
  • Community service--100 hour minimum (if BAC above 0.16)

Clearly, getting behind the wheel drunk is not a game you want to play. And of course, further Edwardsville Illinois DUI convictions will result in increased jail time, community service, fines, and Edwardsville Illinois license suspension or even Edwardsville Illinois license revocation.

Currently, Edwardsville Illinois prohibits texting while driving, and fines begin at $75. You are also prohibited from using cell phones while driving through school zones. In all other instances, be VERY careful while using your cell phone, even if it's within the rules.
