So apparently I’ve been using a class D provisional license all this time. I remember being told that it gets upgraded to a regular class C when you turn 18. But they never said I had to go to the DMV to take a test to get it upgraded. So here I am, almost 22, with a license that legally does not allow me to drive between midnight and 6:00 AM or to carry more than 3 non-family passengers.
I’m going to the DMV today to have that fixed. I really don’t understand why it doesn’t automatically update itself, though. The time restriction really just coincides with curfew for minors, anyway. Can’t they just give everyone a class C license in the first place and just have a different law covering minors’ restrictions? Seems like a waste of everyone’s time to do it like this.
