You have this up until you turn 18, then you get an actual license with no restrictions. In my state, however, it's blue to signify you can't buy alcohol. At 21, you get one with a white background to signify you can.
The actual driving test is given after the 6 months with a GDL I. All it consisted of for me was parallel parking in between two traffic cones with enough space between them to park a school bus.
Same here, except you can upgrade to level 2 with a road test after 12 months (or 8 with driving school) and then you automatically leave graduated licensing 12 months after that.
My road test consisted of turning right out of the DMV, a few lane changes down the arterial road, right on a light, left at a 4 way stop, right at a 4 way int with 2 way stops (residential), a few other traffic lights, merge onto highway, merge off highway, parallel and stall parking, back to DMV. Did it during rush hour, but it was a pretty easy route. The area only had a population of like 60,000-70,000.
