** For those persons age 16 and 17 years old who have successfully completed all requirements to obtain a driver license, Oregon issues a Class C Provisional License (Graduating License).  This license has restrictions as to who may be in the car, how old passengers must be and hours of day/night driving restrictions. This Provisional License eases a young driver into the responsibilities of driving, rather than being granted the full privileges in one step
