Of course! But you might want to buckle up for this—it’s a bit of a doozy.
The curfew for teen drivers in Washington D.C. is either 11 p.m. or 12:01 a.m., depending on the time of year and day of the week. Essentially, the curfew for drivers under the age of 18 favors weekends and summer months.
Here’s how it works. Teen drivers are prohibited from driving:
- Between 12:01 a.m. and 6 a.m. July through August, every day of the week
- Between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. September through June, Sunday through Thursday
