You can apply for a junior learner's permit at age 16 and receive a junior driver's license after you pass the road test. You are considered a junior driver until you turn 17 if you have taken a high school or college driver education course, or 18 without. FYI...junior drivers are subject to certain restrictions including one that you can't drive with more than 2 passengers under age 21.

Can someone with a Florida Learner's permit drive outside the state of Florida?

No, You will still need to take the written test. After passing, the DMV will issue you a learner's permit and you can take the test any time (so long as you are over 18.) If you are under the age of 18, you will need to hold the permit for 6 months. The earlier answer is not correct. It depends on the state law where you are.In New York, if a person has a Florida Learner's Permit and is at least 16 years old, the person can use the Florida Learner's Permit just like a New York Learner's Permit. Note the difference - a 15 year old cannot drive in New York due to the different age requirements for Learner's Permits in New York - minimum age for a New York Learner's Permit is 16 not 15 as it is for a Florida Learner's Permit.

Can you drive in New York state with a Pennsylvania learners permit?

Contrary to common belief, there are states which do not permit an out-of-state driver to operate a vehicle in their state on a learner's permit (Pennsylvania is actually one of them). New York, however, is one which does, provided the driver meets the criteria and restrictions for permit drivers both in New York State, and the state which issued their permit. Additionally, however, out-of-state learner's permit drivers are not permitted to drive within the Five Boroughs of New York City.
