Can a 17-year-old with an instructional permit drive to work school and home alone?

It depends what stae you live in.In here in Alabama no you can't.

There is no state that will allow a student driver (Class CP) to drive without a person who is over the age of 18-21 in the car (the age of the other driver may vary). A Class D license will enable the underage driver to drive without a passenger,, but there are restrictions to places allowed to travel and curfews.

Not in California. Permit drivers MUST have a 25-year-old, California-licensed driver sitting in the front passenger seat at all times.
