Once you turn 17, you'll be eligible for your full driver's license, which has no restrictions.

How To Get A Mississippi Driver’s License

Driving may offer the privilege of freedom—but it comes at the price of responsibility.

In order to legally drive in Mississippi, you must pass a number of tests that show the Mississippi Driver Services Bureau (DSB) 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.

Mississippi Graduated Driver’s License (GLD) Program (Under Age 17)

The DSB has a system called the Graduated Driver’s License (GDL), which allocates certain driving privileges over a period of time.

If you’re under 17, you must use this system to earn your license.

Limited Learner’s Permit

Mississippi offers a limited learner’s permit for 14-year olds. The credential will ONLY allow you to drive in a Driver’s Education vehicle, while supervised by a Driver’s Ed instructor.

To apply, you’ll have to:

Once you turn 15, you’ll have to apply for a regular learner’s permit.

Learner’s Permit

Getting a full driver’s license in Mississippi starts with getting your learner’s permit. You’re free to apply once you turn 15 years old.

Earning the credential involves passing:

  • The written examination.
  • A vision test.

Both of these are administered through the Mississippi Driver Services Bureau. Schedule an appointment, and make sure to bring:

Once the tests are passed, the paperwork filed, and the fee paid, you’ll be issued your Mississippi learner’s permit.

On this permit, you will ONLY be able to drive while supervised by a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

In order to move on to the next step, you’ll have to:

  • Practice on your permit for at least one year.

OR

  • Turn 17 – whichever happens first.

Intermediate Driver’s License

After your learner’s permit comes your intermediate license. To make the leap, you’ll have to pass a driving examination.

Schedule another appointment with the Driver Services Bureau, and make sure to bring:

You’ll also need your parents to sign paperwork on your behalf.

With your intermediate license, you will be able to drive on your own, but ONLY:

  • Between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday.
  • Between 6 a.m. and 11:30p.m., Friday and Saturday.
  • When traveling between home and work or school.

Full Driver’s License

You’ll be able to apply for your full driver’s license once you EITHER:

  • Practice for 6 months, violation-free, on your provisional license.
  • Turn 17.

To make it official, contact your nearest DSB office and bring:

You’ll then be awarded your full Mississippi driver’s license. This license has no restrictions. Congratulations!

Driver’s License (Age 17+)

Written Exam

To start, you’ll have to successfully pass:

  • The written knowledge exam.
  • An eye test.

Schedule an appointment with the MS Driver Services Bureau to take your tests, and:

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 turn your permit into a license, you’ll need to pass the Mississippi road test.

There’s no mandatory waiting period in Mississippi to take the driving test if you’re 17 or older.

When you feel ready, schedule a driving test appointment with the DSB. Make sure to bring to this appointment:

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

  • Registration.
  • License plates.

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

Welcome to Mississippi!

You have 60 days after establishing residency in the Magnolia State to transfer your out-of-state license.

To do so, schedule an appointment with your closest Driver Services Bureau and bring:

You must hold this credential for at least 14 days before you can take the road test.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

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

  • Your current, valid CLP.
  • The Mississippi 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:
