What do I need before I can get my permit?

Teens who want to obtain a Supervised Instruction Permit should enroll in an approved driver-training program. You should also begin studying the Idaho Driver’s Manual so you can pass the written knowledge test. The topics include:

• Licensing information
• Traffic laws
• Signs, signals and pavement markings
• The driving task (defensive driving and handling an emergency)
• Sharing the road
• Adjusting to driving conditions
• Freeway driving
• How to protect your driving privileges
• Vehicle equipment and safety
• Vehicle title and registration

The manual can be found online at the Idaho DMV website or a copy can be obtained at any DMV office.
