Utah Driver's License Resources

Not everyone wants to attend driver’s education, or can afford to attend a driver’s education school or course. Fortunately, those people aren’t all by themselves when it comes to getting a Utah driver’s license. Below is a list of resources that we have to help you pass the tests and learn the same material that you would in a school or course.

Teen Permit Test

Don’t let the name fool you! The Utah permit test is for anyone learning to drive for the first time, not just for teens. You need to take this practice test if you’ve never had a Utah driver’s license before.

New to State Driver’s License Test

The Utah new to state driver’s license test is only required for those whose license has been expired for at least one year and are new residents to the state. Otherwise, if your old license is still valid, then you can get your Utah driver’s license without taking the test.

Renewing Driver’s License Test

If you are renewing your Utah driver's license, but your license has been expired for at least six months, then you will need to take the Utah driver’s license renewal test. You will also have to take this test if you have had at least four traffic citations within the past five years.

State Driving Manual / Handbook

The Utah driving manual is a must-have for anyone wanting to get their Utah driver's license or permit. Not only does it include everything you need to know for both exams, but the handbook is one of the few places you can go to get this information. Click the link to download the latest version.

Road Signs Practice Test

Road signs appear on every written exam, and failing to obey a road sign on your road test could lead to automatic failure. Avoid failure with the Utah road signs practice test. It’s the best way to learn what the road signs.
