Teen driver Restrictions in Virginia:
Virginia's curfew laws
prohibit a driver under age 18 who holds a learner's permit or driver's license from driving midnight to 4 A.M. If you hold a driver's license you may drive during these hours:
• in case of an emergency;
• when traveling to and from work or a school-sponsored event;
• when accompanied by a parent or other adult acting in place of a parent;
• when responding to an emergency call as a volunteer firefighter or rescue squad personnel.
Restrictions on the Number of Passengers
• If you are under age 18, you may carry only one passenger under age 18 during the first year that you hold your driver's license.
• After you have held your license for one year and until you reach the age of 18, you may carry three passengers under age 18.
• Learner's permit holders may not carry more than one passenger under age 18.
• Passenger restrictions do not apply to family members.
• Violations of either the curfew or passenger restrictions can result in the suspension of your driver's license.
Cellular Telephone/Wireless Telecommunications Device Restrictions
• Virginia's cellular telephone law restricts a driver under age 18 who holds a learner's permit or driver's license from using any cellular telephone or any other wireless telecommunications device, regardless of whether such device is or is not hand-held.
• If you are under age 18, you can only use a cell phone or any other telecommunications device for a driver emergency, and the vehicle must be lawfully parked or stopped.
