When can I get my driver’s license?

Intermediate Phase
• You must pass a driving skills test after the 180-day permit period.
• You must complete a four-hour safety education class before getting a full license.
• You must hold an instruction for a minimum of 30 days before applying for a driver’s license if age 21 or older.
• Provide proof from a parent or legal guardian that you have completed 60 hours of supervised driving, with 10 hours done at night.

Under Age 21
• You must hold an instruction permit for 180 days before applying for a driver’s license.

Under Age 18
• You must take a road test to prove your driving skills before applying for a license. You are limited to carrying one passenger under the age of 20 who is not related to you. If you accumulate more than six points, your driving privileges may be suspended. You are prohibited from having any serious moving violations during the permit phase. If you receive a moving violation during this time, the 180-day waiting period will start over.
