The state legislature approved a graduated drivers license bill in February.
The bill, which becomes law Tuesday, restricts 16-year-old and some 17-year-old drivers from driving between midnight and 6 a.m. or from driving with more than four people in the car.
In addition, 16-year-olds must have signed permission from a parent or guardian to get a driver's license.
Alabama is among 40 other states that have some form of a graduated drivers license law.
