Vermont Driver's License
Your examiner wants to see that you are capable of driving safely and effectively. During your VT Driving Exam, you want to make sure that you are not driving too quickly or too slowly; you want to accelerate smoothly and gradually. Obey all stop signs and traffic signals, do not tailgate other vehicles and stay in the correct lane. You should also know what various street signs and traffic signals indicate to drivers on the road.
The night before your VT Driving Exam, you should practice driving with a licensed driver who is 25 years old or older. You should make sure you get a good night's rest as well.
The VT Permit Test consists of 20 multiple choice questions. You will need to answer 16 of those 20 questions correctly in order to pass.
No. You are not allowed to use your VT Driver's Manual or any other study material while you take your VT Permit Test.
No. You do not have to take or pass a drug test to be able to apply or receive an VT Driver's License.
There are a few reasons, test takers fail their VT Permit Test. A test taker who fails may not have studied thoroughly. Or he or she may have been nervous, anxious and/or distracted on the day of the test. If you fail your VT Permit Test, you will not receive your VT Learner's Permit, and you will need to retake the exam. You will be able to do so as early as the next business day, however, do not rush retaking the exam. Take your time. Read the entire VT Driver's Manual again and answer test questions on our website [link] so that the next time you take the VT Permit Test you have the best chance of passing.
If you pass your VT Permit Test, you will receive your VT Learner's Permit. If you are over 18, you can apply for your license whenever you are ready. If you are under 18, you will need to maintain your VT Learner's Permit for a year before you can take the VT Driving Exam. During this time, you should complete forty hours of behind-the-wheel training.
You should practice and develop a number of safe driving skills. You should feel comfortable accelerating smoothly and gradually, passing through intersections safely, changing lanes effectively, coming to a complete stop at stop signs and traffic signals, sharing the road with other drives, maintaining the speed limit, staying in the correct lane and more. Remember during your exam, your primary responsibility is to demonstrate to your examiner that you know how to drive safely and effectively.
On the day of your VT Permit Test, you will need to bring proof of your identity, proof of your residency in Vermont and your Social Security Number. If you are under 18, your Learner's Permit application will need to be signed by your parent or legal guardian.
