If you are under 18 years of age, you must complete an application and have it notarized with signatures of parents or legal guardians. You must also provide your birth certificate, social security card, and a signed certification of school attendance.

After receiving your driving permit you must wait at least one year before applying for your Mississippi driver’s license if you are under the age of 17. During this time, you should get as much practice with a licensed driver 21 years of age or older. If you are 17 years of age or older, you may take your road test at any time, even the same day of your written test.
You should expect to see 30 questions on the computerized exam that may cover any part of the Mississippi driver manual.

  • Spend as much time as you can with the MIssissippi driver’s manual. You can take every practice permit test MS has to offer, but you’ll also want to have the most recent copy of the state’s driver’s manual and use that as the foundation for your studying as it contains everything you need to know about the state’s driving laws.
  • Prepare the night before to reduce stress. The night before the test make sure you get organized. Know where you’re going, have all of your paperwork in order and have a plan to get there early. Avoiding last minute problems with some pre-planning will put you in a good position to pass the test.
