WHAT KIND OF TESTING IS NECESSARY?

An eye screening and Knowledge Test will be given at the Driver License Center. Once passed, a Learner's Permit will be issued. The Learner's Permit will be valid for one year. If you are under age 18, a six-month waiting period and 65 hours of behind-the-wheel driving experience is required prior to taking the Road Test.

 

When a driving student is ready to take the Road Test, he or she can schedule a Road Test either online or by calling 1-800-423-5542.
