DMV Practice Test
How To Get An Alaska Drivers License
In Alaska, driver’s license regulations are handled by the Alaska Department of Motor Vehicles office. Drivers may apply for a driving permit starting at the age of 14 in Alaska. For those that applying for a permit, a permit application must be completed, in addition to providing multiple forms of identification, birth date, social security number and address. Those that are under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or provide a notarized parental consent form. Drivers must be of a minimum age of 16 to obtain a provisional driver’s license. Those that are the ages of 16-18 may obtain a provisional license. Once an individual with a clean provisional license record turns 18, they may qualify for an Alaska Driver’s License.
After receiving a driver’s permit, drivers must wait 6 months before applying for a provisional driver’s license. In addition to being a minimum of 16 years of age, drivers must also prove that they have completed a training of 40 hours with 10 of those being driving in adverse conditions, such as poor weather and / or nighttime driving. At this time, candidates must then pass their written knowledge test, vision test, road test and alcohol and drug awareness test. In addition, they must pay a $15 driver application fee.

How To Pass the Alaska Driving Permit Test
If you’re concerned about how you’ll perform when test day arrives, here are some tips that may prove useful as you prepare:
- Practice, practice, practice. This means you should be practicing with your learner’s permit and also taking as many practice tests as you can to familiarize yourself with test questions and road signs.
- Practice like you’ll be tested. If possible drive the same car and in the same area where you’ll be tested on exam day. If you’re familiar with the vehicle, speed limits, and potential hazards you’ll be much more comfortable and less prone to making silly mistakes.

- Give your car an inspection a day or two before the exam - make sure the windshield and windows are clean, adjust your mirrors and check the AC, turn signal, wipers, lights, defrost, emergency brake, horn and hazard lights to make sure they’re all in functional condition.
- Gather up all of your necessary paperwork like your proof of registration, insurance and permit the night before the exam and have them ready to go so you’re not scrambling to find them in the morning.
