    Provides for the following, applicable to persons who turned 15 years old on or after March 1, 2020, and expiring June 30, 2021.

    Makes the following modifications to the issuance of limited learner's permits and provisional drivers' licenses for persons under 18, notwithstanding the standards regulations set forth in GS 20-11. 

    Restricts permittee or licensees to driving between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. for the first three months after issuance, rather than the statutory standard of the first six months after issuance.

    Regarding persons 16 to 18 years old who have an unrestricted out-of-state license, allows issuance of a full provisional license if the person has completed an approved drivers' education program, has held the license issued by the other state for at least six months (rather than the statutory standard of at least 12 months), and has no moving violation or seat belt infraction convictions during the preceding six months. Allows issuance of a limited provisional license if the person has completed an approved drivers education program but does not meet one of the other two criteria for full provisional license issuance. 

    Regarding persons 16 to 18 years old who have a restricted out-of-state license, allows issuance of a limited provisional license if the person has completed an approved drivers' education program, has held the restricted license issued by the other state for at least six months (rather than the statutory standard of at least 12 months), and has no moving violation or seat belt infraction convictions during the preceding six months. Allows issuance of a limited learner's permit if the person has completed an approved drivers' education program but does not meet one or the other two criteria for limited provisional license issuance; allows a person qualifying under this provision to be deemed to have held a limited learner's permit in North Carolina for each month the restricted out-of state license was held if the person's parent or guardian certifies that the person has no moving violation convictions in the preceding six months.

    Maintains all other statutory requirements of GS 20-11.

    Appropriates from the Highway Fund to the Division of Motor Vehicles $5,000 in nonrecurring funds for the 2019-20 fiscal year to implement the act.
