Withdrawal of consent

As a parent or guardian you may need to decide whether or not to allow your teen to continue driving. The teen may demonstrate driving behavior that is not safe. The teen may not yet have the maturity to handle driving responsibility.

Regardless of the reason, you can withdraw your consent for driving privileges if your teen is:

  • under age 18, and
  • has a driver license with a Class designation that includes the letter "J" (junior), for example "DJ" or "MJ".

Note: a driver can qualify for a driver license that is not a junior driver license at age 17 with the completion of Driver Education. You cannot withdraw consent for a driver age 17 who has received a license without a license class designation that includes the letter "J".

To withdraw consent, complete and send to DMV form Withdrawal of Consent (pdf) (MV-1W).
