How To Get A New Hampshire Drivers License

Any person over 16 years old and under 21 years of age who meets the requirements for a New Hampshire driver license, will be issued a Youth Operator License. The Youth Operator License will expire on your 21st birthday, and if you haven’t gotten over two speeding tickets or vehicle infractions, you’ll be granted a full license. You may start learning to drive when you are 15 and 6 months old but may not apply for a driver’s license until you are 16 years old. Any driver under 18 years old must complete an approved Driver Education Program and provide written permission from a parent or guardian to apply for a driver license.
If you are under 18 years old, you can request a driver license once you have passed a New Hampshire approved Driver Education Program and completed forty hours of additional supervised driving time. Your supervising driver has to be at least 21 years old, and have a current license. All applicants must pass a vision test, knowledge test, and a road test. To pass your vision test, you must be able to read the 20/40 vision line with both eyes.

The next step is to take and pass the knowledge exam with a grade of 80 percent or higher. If you fail, you must wait ten days to retake it, but there is no additional fee. The NH DMV uses a computer-based, automated touch screen testing system to administer all knowledge tests, and there is an option to have it read to you through the computer. The final step is a road test, and this typically takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. 

You must have insurance on the vehicle you plan to use and have it up to code. If you pass, you pay a license fee of $50 and have your picture taken. If you’re new to the state, you have 60 days to trade your license in.
Go to your local DMV in person and bring proof of identity, proof of residency, social security card, and your old license. Next, pass a vision exam and submit the Application for Driver’s License or Non-Driver ID Card. The final step is paying the $50 fee.

How To Pass the New Hampshire Driver’s License Test

Too many people fail the New Hampshire driving test on the first try because they don’t prepare correctly. The following tips will help you show up to your test confident and fully prepared.

  • Take your time reading each question carefully. You don’t get extra points for finishing quickly, so take your time and make sure you don’t misread anything. Mistaking a crosswalk for a sidewalk can lead to an incorrect answer that you can’t afford.
