A single seventeen year old in Utah technically must have a parent or guardian until they reach the age of eighteen, however, they do not need to live with this parent or guardian. So, yes, they can move out of their parents house, but they must do so with the parent's permission. The only exception to this rule that I know of is a married seventeen year old. If a parent or legal guardian gives permission for their seventeen year old to be married, once that seventeen year old is legally married, they no longer need to have a parent or legal guardian.

If you have your parents' permission, yes.
