How To Get A Rhode Island Drivers License

Rhode Island has a three-step process to get your full license. You must be 16 to be eligible for your learner’s permit and complete a 33-hour driver’s education course certified by the Community College of Rhode Island. If you are under 18, you must bring a parent, legal guardian, licensed foster parent, or adult spouse must be present to sign the permit application. A parent, legal guardian or foster parent must show identification. You have to take and pass a 50 question written exam, and get at least 40 correct. If you arrange it ahead of time, an interpreter or an oral exam may be done. You will also take a road signs test, and must get 85 percent or better to pass.
If you fail the test, you may retake it within one day and pay a $11.50 fee each time. You get three chances to pass within a three month period, and if you fail all three you have to start from the beginning. There is also a vision test you have to take and pass to get your permit. You pay the $20 application fee, and your permit is valid for one year. After six months, you are eligible for a road test.
To obtain your limited provisional license, you must complete 50 hours of driving experience with a supervising driver with 10 of those hours at night. Your driver must be 21 or older and be in good standing. You have to pay the $15 application fee, and if you haven’t passed the road test yet, you have to complete this before you are eligible for a limited provisional license.
To obtain your full license, you must have your limited provisional license for six months, be 17 years old, and have completed all of your driving hours. You have to bring your limited license, social security card, and pay the fee of $38.50.
If you are new to the state, you have 60 days to trade your license in. If your license is valid, you have to bring it in person to the DMV. If it is currently valid, the road test will be waived. You pay a fee of $43.50 and produce identification documents. You will also have to take a written knowledge test and be issued a new license.
