A ROAD TEST is required to obtain a provisional license. Once you obtain your provisional license, you must wait for at least six months in order to graduate to a regular driver license. If you are convicted of violating a traffic law or of violating AS 04.16.050 (c) (repeat minor consuming alcohol) while holding a provisional driver license, you must wait an additional six months from the conviction date before you would be eligible for a regular driver license. A new parental consent form (signed in front of a DMV representative or notary public) must be submitted in order to receive a regular license. Parental consent is required to graduate from a provisional license to a regular license. To remove a provisional restriction, you must go to a DMV office. The fee for a duplicate license is charged to remove the restriction.
- unless accompanied by a person who is at least 21 years of age that is licensed to drive the type or class of vehicle being driven.
- unless driving to or from your place of employment or within the scope of your employment. All driving must be along the most direct route.
NOTE: Once you reach the age of 18, these restrictions no longer apply to you. You are not required to obtain a regular license at that time. If you choose to obtain a regular license at that time, you would be subject to the vision test and replacement license fees.
A violation of the restrictions is an infraction

The Alaska DMV has launched a new program sponsored by Ford Motor Company that is designed to prevent one of the major causes of death and injury for teens on the road. Utilizing the sponsorship funds committed by Ford, The Parent’s Supervised Driving Program will provide parents and guardians with advanced and sophisticated tools to optimize the 40 hours of parental supervised driving required for your teen to obtain their license. The program is available in a printed guide that will be given out at each first time issuance of a permit. Parents and teens are also encouraged to use the RoadReady app as a tool for keeping track of the amount of driving your teen has done. You can view an online version of the program by clicking here. The RoadReady app can be accessed through the Apple App Store and through Google play (Coming Soon).
