Welcome to Adulthood!

The age of majority is a term used to describe when a child becomes an adult in the eyes of the law, which for many things is 18 years old. This website describes some of what you are able to do now that you are 18.

Remember: turning 18 does not mean you have all the rights and privileges of an adult – some came earlier and some will come later. For example, in Idaho you were able to get a provisional driver’s license when you turned 15, but you can’t buy or consume alcohol until you turn 21.

The information on this website is up to date as of July 1, 2015. Any changes in the law since that date are not included.

It’s also important to note that this website is for informational purposes only and nothing on this site should be considered as legal advice. If you have a specific legal question, you should contact an attorney.
