by law, a person who has a instructional permit can not drive without a parent or someone over the age of 21 with a license in the passengers seat.

Additional: If your accompanying license holder should happen to be intoxicated you cannot operate the motor vehicle or be a "disignated driver."

What is a school permit?

A school permit is a driver's permit for a young person who can only use it so that he or she may drive to SCHOOL ONLY. In some states, the legal age for obtaining a driver's license is 16, 17 or 18. If you are 14 or 15 years old, your state may issue a school permit so that you may be able to drive yourself to school. A parent or sibling are USUALLY the only other passengers allowed to ride in the same vehicle, with you as the driver.

What happens to your parent if they let you drive with a permit only alone and you get pulled over?

It surely depends on the facts and circumstances of the stop. First off, what was the reason for the stop? Was it a simple case of speeding? Or was it reckless driving? Did you simply roll through a stop sign or almost run over a pedestrian? The reason for the stop plays a huge role in the outcome. Second, learners permit requires, in most jurisdictions, that the holder of the permit be accompanied by a licensed driver of at least 21 years old. Some require if the permit holder is under 18 years old that the licensed driver be a parent or guardian. That person had better be present in the car or the permit can be revoked. In addition to other very serious charges, such as driving without a valid drivers license, the typical traffic violation can carry fines and penalties that run into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars. If it was a minor traffic infraction, the driver and the licensed driver may get off with just a warning. Or, the officer may choose to cite the licensed driver for the infraction. The officer may also require that the licensed driver take over driving for the duration of the trip. If a moving violation occurs and a ticket is issued, the insurance company will be notified. This will often result in the insured driver's rates to increase.
