FAQs / Is a student driver who is already 16 or 17 still required to have an instruction permit for six months?

Yes.  All students under 18 must have a valid permit for a minimum of six months before getting their license.  The six months begins from the day that they obtain their permit, not from the day they take their first driving lesson.  At 18 years of age, a driver license applicant must have a permit but is not required to hold it for a minimum period of time.
