No. You do not have to take a drug test in order to obtain your AZ Permit.

An AZ Instructional Permit costs $7.00.
You should consider thoroughly having your parent or legal guardian accompany you as they need to sign your application in front of a MVD official. If your parent or legal guardian is unable to accompany you, your application must be signed in front of a notary public. You should then be accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older.
Typically, the permit test includes 30 questions.
You need to answer 24 out of 30 questions correctly in order to pass successfully. This means that you need a score of 80%.
The biggest common error is rushing through the questions. During your permit test remember to relax, take your time and answer the questions thoughtfully.
No. The AZ permit test is not an open book test. Under no circumstances are you allowed to use your AZ Driver's Handbook or any other study guides during the exam.
When you apply for your license, you will need to bring the application fee, a signed application (by your parent if you are between 15 1/2 and 18 years old), your Social Security Card, two forms of identification, one of which must provide a clear photo of you. If you do not have a photo ID, you will need to submit three forms of ID. Visit the AZ MVD official website for further information about acceptable documents.
You must be at least 15 1/2 years old to apply.
