Joshua's Law Requirements

In order to get a driver's license at age 16, Joshua's Law requires that teens must complete an approved 30-hour driver education course in Georgia. Our course satisfies this 30-hour driver education requirement. In addition, teens must complete behind-the-wheel training.

With an online course (virtual program), teens have two options to complete the behind-the-wheel requirement:

  • Complete a 30-hour online course PLUS 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training at a DDS-approved school PLUS 40 hours of supervised driving with a parent/guardian (6 of which must be at night).
    • OR
  • Complete a 30-hour online course PLUS the 40-Hour Parent/Teen Driving Guide provided by the DDS (no additional supervised driving required).

Please note that teens will not be allowed to take the road skills test until they have completed the 40 hours of supervised driving. Teens will also need to complete a Driving Experience Affidavit (DDS-7) at the DDS. This serves as proof that 40 hours of supervised driving (including 6 hours at night) have been completed.

Teens are also required to hold their Instructional Permit for 1 year and 1 day before they are eligible to apply for their driver's license.

Teens who are 17 years old are not required to complete a driver education course, but they are required to complete 40 hours of supervised driving (including 6 hours of driving at night).
