If I'm under 18, are there any limits to my driver's license?

Yes. Utah uses something called a Graduated Driver's License (GDL) system, which gives out certain driving privileges over certain periods of time.

If you're 15 years old and driving on your learner's permit, you will ONLY be able to drive while accompanied by a:

  • Parent.
  • Legal guardian.
  • Licensed driving instructor.
  • Adult who has signed a financial liability form.

If you're 16 and driving on your learner's permit, restrictions include:

  • No driving between 12 am to 5 am, unless:
    • Accompanied by a fully-licensed passenger who's at least 21 years old.

OR

  • Driving to or home from:
    • An agricultural assignment.
    • A school event.
    • Work.
    • An emergency situation.
  • Front seat passengers can only be:
    • A parent.
    • A legal guardian.
    • A licensed driving instructor.
    • Someone who signed a financial liability form on your behalf.
  • Only immediate family as passengers for the first 6 months.

If you're 17 and driving on your learner's permit, there is no longer a curfew, but all other restrictions apply.

Once you turn 18, you can apply for your regular unrestricted license.

What happens after I pass my UT road test?

After passing the Utah road test, you'll be eligible to receive:

  • Your provisional license, if you're under 18.
  • Your full driver's license, if you're 18 or older.

Once I have my permit, who can I drive with?

While driving on your permit, you'll only be able to drive while accompanied by a:

  • Parent.
  • Legal guardian.
  • Licensed driving instructor.
  • Passenger who's signed financial liability forms on your behalf.
  • Fully-licensed passenger who's at least 21 years old.

You may also only take immediate family members as passengers for the first 6 months.

Once I get my UT permit, what do I need to do before I can drive with my parents?

Once you earn your Utah learner's permit, you will automatically be eligible to drive with your parents.

What are the auto insurance requirements for UT drivers?

Utah auto insurance minimum requirements include:

  • Bodily injury liability: $25,000 per person/$65,000 per accident.
  • Property damage liability: $15,000 per accident.
  • Personal injury protection: $3,000 per accident.

How To Get A Utah Driver’s License

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

In order to legally drive in Utah, you must pass a number of tests that show the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) 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.

Utah License (Under Age 18)

Utah employs something called a Graduated Driver License (GDL) system for anyone applying for a first-time license under age 18.

You’ll be able to begin the process once you turn 15 years old.

Learner’s Permit

The first step toward earning your license in Utah is earning your learner’s permit. This involves passing:

  • The UT written exam.
  • An online Highway Safety Trends exam.

You can take the Safety Trends exam at home. You must get 100% in order to move on, but you can take the test as many times as you need to.

Once you’ve successfully passed, it’s time to take the written exam. To do so, schedule an appointment with the DMV, and:

Your parent or guardian will also have to be with you to sign paperwork on your behalf.

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

UT Instruction Permit Restrictions and Requirements

You’re not done once you earn your permit. There’s still a lot to do before you’ll be eligible to earn your full license.

You’ll have to practice on your Utah learner’s permit for at least 6 months, and complete a course of Driver’s Education, which can include any of the following:

  • 30 hours of Utah approved online/home study.
  • 27 hours of high school classroom instruction.
  • 18 hours of commercial/privation instruction.

All applicants must also log at least 12 hours of behind the wheel practice before their driving test.

Your learner’s permit also comes with several restrictions.

If you’re 15 years old and driving on your learner’s permit, you will ONLY be able to drive while accompanied by a:

  • Parent.
  • Legal guardian.
  • Licensed driving instructor.
  • Adult who has signed a financial liability form.

If you’re 16 and driving on your learner’s permit, restrictions include:

  • No driving between 12 am to 5 am, unless:
    • Accompanied by a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

OR

    • Driving to or home from:
      • An agricultural assignment.
      • A school event.
      • Work.
      • An emergency situation.
  • Front seat passengers can only be:
    • A parent.
    • A legal guardian.
    • A licensed driving instructor.
    • Someone who signed a financial liability form on your behalf.
  • Only immediate family as passengers for the first 6 months.

If you’re 17 and driving on your learner’s permit, there is no longer a curfew, but all other restrictions apply.

Driver’s License

It may sound like the state is asking a lot in the permit phase, but once all of the above is completed, you’re just one step away from earning your full driver’s license.

To make the final upgrade, you’ll have to pass the driving test. You can do this either:

No matter which option you pick, make sure you bring:

A parent or legal guardian must also be with you to sign paperwork on your behalf.

The office should then issue your full license. Congratulations!

Driver’s License (Age 18+)

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

Written Exam

To start, you’ll have to visit the DMV in order to pass:

  • The written knowledge test.
  • A vision test.

To do so, schedule an appointment with your closest participating DMV office, and make sure to bring:

  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Utah address.
    • Legal presence in the United States.
  • The appropriate fee.

After passing the exam and paying the fee, you’ll be able to schedule your driving exam.

In the meantime, you may only drive while accompanied by someone with their full license who’s at least 21 years old.

Road Skills Exam

To earn your full license, you’ll have to take the road skills exam. There’s no required waiting period to take this test in Utah, but your permit will be good for up to 1 year after it’s issued.

Schedule an appointment with any UT Driver Service Center, and bring:

  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Utah address.
    • Legal presence in the United States.
  • Your valid instruction permit.
  • The appropriate fee.

Make sure to show up to the appointment with a fully-licensed driver who’s at least 21 years old. The vehicle you test in will also need current and valid:

  • Liability insurance.
  • Registration.
  • License plates.

Once you pass the test, you should receive your license. Congratulations!

Transferring an Out-of-State License

Welcome to Utah!

If you’re new to the state, you’ll only have 10 days after establishing residency to transfer your license. Luckily, the process is pretty easy.

Simply visit your closest participating Division of Motor Vehicles office and bring:

  • Your current, valid license.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Utah address.
    • Legal presence in the United States.
  • The appropriate fee.

You’ll also have to pass a few tests, including:

  • The Utah written exam.
  • A vision test.

The state also reserves the right to have you pass a driving test before issuing your license.

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

Utah DLD Motorcycle Permit & License Info

Utah issues motorcycle endorsements for their residents.

This means an extra credential is added to your regular driver’s license, so you must first have a regular driver’s license before you can apply.

At that point, the application is a multi-step process, which includes taking and passing a written test and driving exam.

Motorcycle Written Test

The first step in earning a Utah motorcycle license is taking the written test. All applicants must take this step through the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles.

First, you’ll have to schedule an appointment with the closest participating DMV office. Then, make sure to bring:

At this appointment, you’ll also have to pass:

  • The 25-question written exam.
  • A vision test.

Once the above is taken care of, you’ll be issued your motorcycle permit. You then have two options for proceeding:

Utah Motorcycle Permit

Regardless of where or how you take your riding test, you’ll have to practice on your learner’s permit first. This credential comes with a few restrictions, including NO riding:

  • With passengers.
  • Between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • On highways, or over 60 mph.

These restrictions last the first 2 months you have your permit. After that point, restrictions are lifted.

Your permit is valid for 6 months.

Utah Motorcycle Driving Test

The final step in the process is taking your motorcycle riding test.

If you test through a certified course, you’ll be given a certificate once you pass. Bring this to your closest participating DMV office along with:

The state will then issue your motorcycle endorsement.

If you decide to test through the DMV, you’ll also have to bring:

Once the test is passed, paperwork signed, and fees paid, you’ll be issued your motorcycle endorsement. Congratulations!

Utah 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 Utah license.
  • Be cleared by a federally-approved doctor or receive a medical waiver.

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:

  • The written knowledge test.
  • A vision exam.

To get started, visit your closest participating DMV office and bring:

  • Your current, valid UT driver’s license.
  • A completed medical self-certification form/waiver.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Utah address.
    • Legal presence in the United States.
  • The appropriate fee.

After the paperwork is filed, the fee paid and the tests passed, you’ll be issued your CLP.

CLP Restrictions and Requirements

You must hold your Utah commercial learner’s permit 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 Driver’s License (CDL)

To turn your CLP into a CDL, you’ll have to pass the driving skills exam. You can do this either:

At your appointment, make sure to bring:

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

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