A: You can, but you need to comply with the NJ law that applies to the similar license recognized in NJ. In NJ, the kind of your license is often referred to as "probationary license" (aka provisional license). As long as you drive in NJ, you should keep in mind the restrictions that apply in NJ (which apply to you), which include:

-- Display a reflectorized decal on each license plate (front/back);

-- No driving after 11:01 p.m. and before 5:00 a.m. (NY is 9PM-5AM)

-- Only one additional passenger is allowed unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

-- You can't use cell phones, hand held video games or any other hands-free interactive, wireless communication device.

-- Seat belts must be worn at all times.

Stay safe, and slow down.
