How to Become a Junior Operator

Drivers between 16 1/2 and 18 face special license restrictions.  These restrictions were put into place, not to torture teenagers, but in an attempt to reduce car accidents on our roads.

Before a teenager can even become a junior operator they must first:

  • Complete a drivers education and training program that is approved by the Registrar of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles.

These programs include:

30 hours of live classroom instruction.

12 hours of behind the wheel, driving training.

6 hours of observing another student driver.

Parent or guardian taking a 2 hour class on the content of driver education.

  • Complete 40 hours (not including time with your driver’s education instructor) of supervised driving (proved via a certified statement from your parent or guardian).  This can be reduced to 30 hours if you complete a driver skills development program.
  • You have had a learner’s permit for at least 6 months.
  • You have maintained a Clean Driving Record for a minimum of 6 months prior to your road test.

The purpose of these requirements, as stated by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is to provide a supervised opportunity to develop good driving skills.  If you are worried about your driving record and obtaining your Junior Operator License, please call me at 866-981-7888 or email me to set up a consultation.
