Please be aware that the following Michigan law is still applicable to anyone who is 17yr old and younger as well as anyone who does not have their full operator’s license (meaning it can’t say “graduated driver” in red at the top of your license) MCL 257.310e.

- Teens with a level 2 license shall not operate a motor vehicle between 10pm and 5am except:

     o   Driving to or from or in the course of employment

     o   Accompanied by a parent or legal guardian or a licensed driver 21yrs of age or older designed by the parent or legal guardian.

- Shall not operate a motor vehicle at any time with more than 1 passenger in the vehicle who is younger than 21 years of age except:

     o   When the additional passengers are immediate family members;

     o   When accompanied by a parent or legal guardian or a licensed driver 21 years of age or older designated by the parent or legal guardian.

This means that in order for a 16 or 17-year-old to drive with other people you MUST have someone who is at-least 21yrs of age or older and approved by a parent or legal guardian.
