“There are so many rules and restrictions when having a learner’s license that you should already expect when you do mess up that the consequences are going to be fairly stiff,” Trooper Steve said.
To encourage motorists who have a learner’s permit to drive safely, Florida has installed a rather interesting law.
“If a driver receives a moving violation while driving with a learner’s permit, they would not be allowed to get their actual license, a Class E license, until one year after the conviction date -- the day the driver pays the ticket or is found guilty in court,” Trooper Steve said.
