This bill establishes the teen driver orientation program and requires certain examination permit and special learner's permit applicants, and their parents or guardians, to complete the program. Under the bill, an applicant for a special learner's permit who is under 18 years of age and an applicant for an examination permit who is under 21 years of age cannot obtain the permit unless the applicant has first completed a teen driver orientation program (program) approved by the Division of Highway Traffic Safety in the Department of Law and Public Safety, in consultation with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). An applicant for an examination permit and an applicant for a special learner's permit who is under 18 years of age cannot obtain the permit unless the applicant's parent or guardian has first completed the program. The program may be completed by the applicant's parent or guardian through an on-line provider approved by the Chief Administrator of the MVC. In the event that a parent or guardian is unable to complete the program, the bill permits a relative or supervising adult who is at least 21 years of age and who has been licensed to drive a passenger automobile or motorcycle for at least three years to complete the program. Under the bill, the program is also available to, but not required of, the parent or guardian of an examination permit applicant who is at least 18 years of age but less than 21 years of age. The bill requires all permit applicants to submit to the MVC a certificate issued by an approved teen driver orientation program indicating that the applicant and the applicant's parent or guardian, if required, completed the teen driver orientation program. The chief administrator is to suspend or postpone the driving privileges of any applicant who submits a fraudulent certificate of completion. The bill also requires the distribution of informational brochures to the parents and guardians of beginning drivers under 18 years of age at approved teen driver orientation programs. Under current law, these brochures are provided at the time a permit is issued to a beginning driver.
