You are eligible to apply for a learner’s permit if you are 15 years old and enrolled in a driver’s education course. If you enroll in driver’s education, your written exam is waived. Once you’re ready, go to your local DMV and apply for a permit. Fill out the application, present proof of identity, your social security card, and your driver’s education enrollment proof. Complete and have your parent or guardian sign a Parental Authorization Affidavit, and pass a vision test. If you choose not to enroll in driver’s education, you will take the written examination now.
This multiple choice test has 40 questions and you have to get 32 or better correct to pass. If you fail, you have to wait three days to retake the test and pay a $10 fee each time. Finally, pay the $25 fee. You must complete an additional 50 hours of behind-the-wheel practice with your parent or guardian, with 10 hours being driven during nighttime hours. You have to hold your permit for a minimum of 6 months before you can apply for your intermediate driver’s license.
To obtain your intermediate driver’s license, you must be 16 years old and have all your hours logged. Go to the DMV in person and fill out the Driver’s Licensing Application with your parent’s co-signature. Present a signed certificate of completion for a driver training course. Finally, pass a vision test and pay the $35 application fee and the $54 licensing fee. You will keep this license until you turn 18 years old, then it will automatically roll over into an unrestricted license.
If you are new to the state, you have 30 days to switch your license over. If your license is currently valid, you don’t have to take any additional written test, just a vision test.
