Who can the licensed supervised driver be for a 16 year old

This answer was rated:

Who can the licensed supervised driver be for a 16 year old with their permit?
Is it Parent/Guardian, Grandparent, Anyone over 21, ...?

Do the parents have to give permission for another licensed driver to drive with a permit driver?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

To answer your question directly, the statute places no limitation on the person who is over 21--it can be a friend, a stranger, or a family member. The parents do not have to give permission for the other driver to drive with the permit holder, but being parents, they can deny access to the vehicle to the permit holder. So while they are not required to give permission to the licensed driver, they can deny the vehicle outright or take away the keys.

Good luck.

Do you have a link to DWV about this matter?

Thank you for your follow-up.

I do have a link, please follow it below. Please notice that the person over 21 would have to be 'in loco parentis' if he is not a family member or an instructor:

What is in loco parentis

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Are there forms and/or permissions for "in loco parentis"

Thank you for your follow-up.

There are no forms for someone being 'in loco parentis'. It is a legal term meaning that the adult in question is someone who has acted as a parent or guardian in the past, such as a god-parent, teacher, even a baby sitter. The problem is that since no proof is required, if the 21 year old claims that he is a guardian, that is generally sufficient in case the parties are pulled over.

Good luck.
