One thing that teenagers are eager to do is legally drive. This article will contain information on the long process of how teenagers at certain ages can obtain their licenses, but beware: there are many steps involving this and much of it takes a long period of time.
For teenagers who are 16 years old, in order to obtain your special learner’s permit, you must enroll in a certified driving school. At the driving school, 16-year-olds will study for their written exam. You must bring your 6-Point ID Verification, which are all important documents.
The driving school will take you to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) you have selected, and you will take your vision and knowledge exams. You must get 40 questions correct and not more than 10 questions incorrect to pass.
After you have passed your permit test, you must complete 6 hours of driving school with a driving instructor. After these 6 hours, you’re able to get your permit officially validated. You can now drive on the road with one family member who has had a license for more than three years and one additional passenger.
You can only drive between times 6 am and 11 pm.
Your road test for your probationary license is up next. You must be 17 years of age and you must have held your permit for 6 months. The driving school will take you to the DMV, where you will take the road test. If you pass, you will immediately get your probationary license. You will be able to drive by yourself, with two additional passengers only drive between the hours of 5am and 12 am. Then when you are 18, you can obtain a basic driver’s license. Simply go to the DMV and line up like everyone else and fill out the application with your 6-Point ID Verification. You can obtain your basic driver’s license only if you have had your probationary license for one year.
For teenagers who are 17 years old, you do not need to enroll in a driving school. You can simply go to the DMV with your 6-Point ID Verification and take your vision and knowledge test. When you pass, you only have to wait 3 months until you can take your road test for your probationary license. After that, you do the same process to obtain your basic driver’s license.
The number one priority for new drivers is their safety. If they are caught speeding or violating any driving rules, their permit or license may be suspended for a certain amount of time.
