1In Indiana, driver education determines the minimum age for permits and the intermediate license. People enrolled in or who have completed driver education must be age 15 to have a permit; otherwise, they must be age 16. The minimum age for an intermediate license is 16, 3 months with driver education and 16, 9 months, without.

2Operator licenses issued to individuals younger than 21 are probationary licenses. Holders of a probationary license must adhere to both the night and passenger restriction for six months or until age 21, whichever occurs first. In addition, probationary license holders under age 18 have a graduated night restriction that goes beyond the initial 6 months and lasts until age 18.
