How To Get A Indiana Driver’s License

Driving can afford wonderful freedom—but only if you can prove you’re responsible.

In order to legally drive in Indiana, you must pass a number of tests that show the IN Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) that you can handle a vehicle and follow the rules of the road.

Still, the process looks slightly different, depending on your age and the type of vehicle you want to drive.

Indiana Graduated Driver’s License (GLD) Program (Age 15-20)

Indiana has implemented a system called the Graduated Driver’s License, which allocates certain driving privileges over a period of time.

The process has several steps, and you can start once you turn 15 years old.

Learner’s Permit

The first step toward getting a full driver’s license in the GLD program is getting a learner’s permit. You can start this process when you’re at least:

  • 15 years old, if enrolled in a state-approved Driver’s Ed course.
  • 16 years old, without taking the course.

Once those conditions are met, make an appointment with your closest participating IN Bureau of Motor Vehicles office, and bring:

  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Lawful status in the U.S.
    • Indiana address.
    • Social Security number.
  • Proof of enrollment/completion of an approved Driver’s Ed course, if applicable.
  • The appropriate fee.

A parent, legal guardian, or certified driving instructor will also have to sign a consent form on your behalf.

At this same appointment, you’ll need to successfully pass:

  • The vision screening.
  • The written driving exam.

Once the tests are passed, the paperwork filed, and the fee paid, you’ll be issued your Indiana learner’s permit. This will ONLY allow you to drive:

  • If you’re accompanied by someone who’s fully-licensed and:
    • At least 25 years old and related to you by blood, marriage, or legal status.
    • At least 21 years old and your spouse.
  • Between the hours of 5 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Probationary License

The next step in the process is your probationary license. In order to qualify, you’ll first have to:

  • Hold your learner’s permit for at least 180 days.
  • Meet the minimum age requirements, including:
    • 16 years, 3 months, if you took the Driver’s Ed course.
    • 16 years, 9 months, if you did not take the course.
  • Log at least 50 hours of supervised practice.
    • At least 10 hours must be at night.

When the conditions are met and you feel ready, the final step is the driving exam. Make another appointment with the BMV and bring:

  • Your current, valid learner’s permit.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Lawful status in the U.S.
    • Indiana address.
    • Social Security number.
  • Signed driving log noting 50 hours of supervised practice.
  • The appropriate fee.
  • A parent, guardian, or certified driving instructor to sign paperwork on your behalf.

The vehicle you test in must also have current, valid:

  • Insurance.
  • Registration.
  • License plates.

You’ll also have to show up to this appointment with a licensed driver who’s at least 25 years old, or who’s at least 21 years old and is your spouse.

After successfully passing the exam and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your provisional license.

During the first 180 days of holding this credential, restrictions include:

  • No passengers at all, unless accompanied by a passenger meeting the above requirements.
    • Does not apply when driving siblings or children.
  • No driving between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

After holding your probationary license for 180 days, you will be barred from driving during the following times:

  • Sunday through Thursday: After 11 p.m.
  • Monday through Friday: Before 5 a.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday: Between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

These curfews do not apply if you’re driving:

  • With a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 25 years old

OR

  • To or from:
    • Your job.
    • A school-sanctioned activity.
    • A religious event.

Full Driver’s License

Once you turn 21, you’ll be able to upgrade to a full driver’s license.

There are no conditions or restrictions on this license. Congratulations!

To earn the credential, simply go to the BMV and bring:

You’ll then be issued your license.

Driver’s License (Age 21+)

If you’re applying for a first-time driver’s license in Indiana and you’re 21 or older, the process is a bit more streamlined.

Written Exam

To start, you’ll have to take the written knowledge exam. Visit your closest participating BMV office and bring:

You’ll also need to successfully pass:

  • A vision test.
  • The written knowledge exam.

After passing the exam and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your permit. During this time, you’ll be restricted to driving with a fully-licensed passenger who’s:

  • At least 25 years old and related to you by blood, marriage, or legal status.
  • At least 21 years old and is your spouse.

Road Skills Exam

To earn your full license, you’ll have to take the road skills exam. But before you do, you’ll have to:

  • Hold your learner’s permit for at least 14 days.
  • Log at least 50 hours of supervised practice, including at least 10 hours at night.

Then, when you feel ready, schedule an appointment with the BMV and bring:

  • Your current, valid learner’s permit.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Lawful status in the U.S.
    • Indiana address.
    • Social Security number.
  • The appropriate fee.

Note that you’ll have to show up to this appointment accompanied by a fully-licensed passenger who meets the above requirements. The vehicle you test in will also need current and valid:

  • Insurance.
  • Registration.
  • License plates.

After successfully passing the test and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your full driver’s license. Congratulations!

Transferring an Out-of-State License

Welcome to the IN!

If you’re new to Indiana, you’ll have to transfer your out-of-state license within 30 days of relocating.

To do so, visit your closest participating Bureau of Motor Vehicles office and bring:

  • Your current, valid license.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Lawful status in the U.S.
    • Indiana address.
    • Social Security number.
  • The appropriate fee.

At this appointment, you’ll also have to pass a vision screening to complete the transfer.

Once all of the above credentials have been met, you’ll be issued your new Indiana license.

Indiana BMV Motorcycle Permit & License Info

IN Motorcycle License

To legally drive a motorcycle in Indiana, you’ll have to have an endorsement added to your license. Before you can start the process, you must:

  • Be at least 16 years, 180 days old.
  • Already have a valid Indiana driver’s license.

Once those requirements are met, there are two ways to earn your IN motorcycle license:

  • Through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles office.
  • Directly through a motorcycle training course.

Motorcycle Training Course

The simplest way to earn your IN motorcycle license is by taking a training course. You must pass an state-approved course in order to qualify.

Once this is completed, visit your closest BMV office and bring:

  • Your motorcycle safety course completion certificate.
  • Your current Indiana license.
  • The appropriate fee.

If you’re under 18, you’ll also need to have a parent or legal guardian sign paperwork on your behalf. You’ll then be issued your IN motorcycle license.

Through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles

If you want to skip out on the motorcycle training course, you can still earn your endorsement through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The process is broken down into two steps.

Motorcycle Permit


First, you’ll have to earn your motorcycle permit, which requires passing:

  • The motorcycle written test.
  • An eye exam.

Schedule an appointment with your BMV office, and bring:

  • Your current Indiana license.
  • The appropriate fee.

Once the paperwork is handed in, the tests passed and the fee paid, you’ll be issued your permit. This comes with some restrictions, including:

  • No driving at night.
  • No carrying passengers.

Your permit will be valid for 12 months and may be renewed once.

Motorcycle License

To turn your permit into a license, you’ll have to pass the road exam.

Schedule another appointment with the BMV office and bring:

  • Your current, valid driver’s license
  • The appropriate fee.

If you fail the test, that’s okay! You’ll be able to try again as soon as the following business day. If you fail 3 times, however, you will have to wait 2 months before retesting.

Once the above is complete and the test is passed, you’ll be issued your motorcycle license. Congratulations!

Indiana CDL Requirements

Indiana Commercial Driver’s License

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) will allow you to drive much larger vehicles than the average car. Before you can start the process, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Already have a valid Indiana license.
  • Have a least 1 year of driving experience.
  • Pass a federally-approved medical exam.
  • Order a 10-year driver history report.

Once the above is complete, you can begin the CDL process.

Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP)

The first step toward getting your commercial driver’s license is getting your commercial learner’s permit (CLP).

The process involves passing your written knowledge exam. To take it, visit your closest BMV office and bring:

  • Your medical exam certification.
  • Your driving history report.
  • Your current, valid IN driver’s license.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Indiana residency.
    • Legal status in the U.S.
    • Date of birth.
  • The CLP fee.

After the paperwork is filed, the fee paid and the test passed, you’ll be issued your CLP. You must hold this credential for at least 14 days before you can take the road test.

While practicing on your permit, you are also required to drive with a CDL-holder who’s at least 21 years old.

Commercial Learner’s Permits in Indiana are good for 180 days.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

To turn your CLP into a CDL, you’ll have to pass the driving skills exam.

Schedule an appointment with the BMV and bring:

  • Your current, valid CLP.
  • Your medical exam certification.
  • The Indiana CDL fee.

You must arrive to this appointment with a CDL-holding passenger who’s at least 21 years old. The vehicle you test in must also have current and valid:

  • Insurance.
  • Registration.
  • License plates.

After passing the test and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your CDL. Congratulations!
