How To Get A Missouri Driver’s License

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

In order to legally drive in Missouri, you must pass a number of tests that show the Missouri Driver and Vehicle Services division (DOR) 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.

Missouri Graduated Driver’s License (GLD) Program (Under Age 18)

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

If you’re under 18, you must use this system to earn your license.

Learner’s Permit

The first step toward getting a full driver’s license in Missouri is getting your learner’s permit. You have to be at least 15 years old before you can apply.

To get your Missouri learner’s permit, you’ll have to pass:

  • The state’s driving exam.
  • An eye exam.

In Missouri, driving tests are handled by the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP). Schedule an appointment at your nearest location and:

A parent or guardian will also have to be present to sign paperwork on your behalf.

Once the tests are passed, the paperwork filed, and the fee paid, you’ll be given a receipt to take to the Department of Revenue. Find the nearest location to pick up your Missouri learner’s permit.

MO Learner’s Permit Restrictions

As part of the GDL, each step of the process comes with certain restrictions.

While driving on your learner’s permit in Missouri, you will ONLY be able to drive when accompanied by:

  • If you’re 15 years old:
    • A parent, stepparent or legal guardian.
    • Someone who’s at least 25 years old and has:
      • Had their license for at least three years.
      • Written permission from your parent or legal guardian to drive with you.
  • If you’re 16 or 17 years old:
    • A parent, stepparent or legal guardian.
    • A fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

Intermediate Driver’s License

The next step is earning your intermediate license.

In order to do so, you’ll need to:

  • Practice on your learner’s permit for at least 6 months.
  • Log at least 40 hours of driving practice with a parent, guardian, or certified driving instructor.
    • At least 10 hours must be at night.

Once those requirements have been met, it’s time to take your driving test. Schedule an appointment with the MSHP and bring:

You’ll also need to have proof that the vehicle you’re testing in has:

  • Liability insurance.
  • Valid and current registration.
  • Valid and current Missouri license plates.

After passing the test and paying the fee, you’ll once again be issued a receipt to bring to the DOR. You can exchange this at the Department of Revenue for your intermediate license.

Provisional License Restrictions

Your provisional license also comes with certain restrictions, including:

  • During the first six months:
    • During the first six months, with only one passenger under age 19 who is not a member of your immediate family.
  • During the second six months:
    • No more than 3 passengers under age 19 who are not members of your immediate family.
  • For the entire time:
    • No driving between 5 a.m. and 1 a.m., unless accompanied by a licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

Full Driver’s License

You’ll be able to upgrade to your full license once you:

  • Have held your intermediate license for 12 consecutive months, violation free.
    OR
  • Are within 30 days of your 18th birthday.

To take the final step, schedule an appointment with the DOR and bring:

The state will then issue your license. Congratulations!

Driver’s License (Age 18+)

If you’re applying for a first-time driver’s license in Indiana and you’re 18 or older, the process is a bit more streamlined.

There are no required waiting periods, but you will still have to pass:

  • A vision exam.
  • A written exam.
  • The driving exam.

You can start as soon as you feel ready.

Written Exam

The first step is taking a written exam, which happens at your local Missouri State Highway Patrol office.

The exact documents you need depend on whether you want a REAL ID or regular driver’s license.

Regardless, you’ll need to provide proof of your:

  • Identity.
  • Missouri residency.
  • Social Security number.

At this appointment, you’ll also need to:

  • Pass a vision test.
  • Pass the written knowledge exam.
  • Pay the appropriate fee.

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 21 years old.

Road Skills Exam

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

Schedule another appointment with the MSHP and bring:

Note that you’ll have to show up to this appointment accompanied by a fully-licensed passenger who is either at least 21 years old.

The vehicle you test in will also need current and valid:

  • Liability 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 Missouri!

If you’re new to the state, you’ll have to transfer your out-of-state license once you establish residency in the state. Officially establishing residency includes several scenarios. Contact the Department of Revenue for more information.

Once it’s time to make the switch, schedule an appointment with the DOR and bring:

At this appointment, you’ll also have to pass a vision test.

If your out-of-state license has been expired for 6 months or longer, you’ll also have to take the written and driving exams.

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

Missouri DOR Motorcycle Permit & License Info

To legally drive a motorcycle in Missouri, you can either:

  • Add a motorcycle endorsement to your driver’s license.
  • Earn a stand-alone motorcycle license.

In order to be eligible, you must:

  • Be at least 15 ½ years old.
  • Pass the Class F driver’s license written test, if you don’t have a driver’s license.

MO Motorcycle Permit

The first step toward earning your motorcycle license or endorsement is getting your permit. In order to do so, you must pass:

  • The state’s written motorcycle exam.
  • An eye exam.

To take the tests, schedule an appointment with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and bring:

  • Your current, valid Missouri driver’s license.

OR

If you’re under 16, you must also show proof of passing a state-certified motorcycle safety course.

Once the above requirements are met, the MSHP will give you a receipt to bring to the Department of Revenue. This can then be turned in for your permit.

Missouri Motorcycle License

To turn your motorcycle permit into an endorsement, you’ll need to either:

There is no required waiting period between earning your MO motorcycle permit and license.

If you’re planning to take the course, you’ll be issued the appropriate paperwork after passing that you can trade in for your license at the DOR.

Otherwise, schedule another appointment with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and bring:

  • Your current, valid motorcycle permit.
  • Your valid Missouri driver’s license, if applicable.
  • The motorcycle license fee.

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

 

Missouri CDL Requirements

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 Missouri license.
  • Complete a federally-mandated medical exam.
  • Order a 10-year driving history from the DOR.

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). To do so, you’ll have to pass:

  • A vision exam.
  • The written exam.

All vehicle testing in MO is handled by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Schedule an appointment and make sure to bring:

  • Your current, valid MO driver’s license.
  • Your medical certification form.
  • Your driving history.
  • Proof of your legal presence in the United States.
  • 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.

Your CLP is valid for 6 months, and there is no option for renewal.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

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

Schedule another appointment with the MSHP and bring:

  • Your current, valid CLP.
  • Your current, valid driver’s license.
  • The Missouri 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!
