Driving Instruction since 2008
You and your parent, or guardian, are notified before any suspension action is taken.
On your 18th birthday, your license will become a basic driver license without the intermediate license restrictions. You do not need to visit a driver license office to make this change.
If you are enrolled in an approved Driver's Ed Course you can get an instruction permit at age 15. You will need a waiver from your school, allowing you to apply for the permit up to 10 days before the class starts. The waiver allows you to be issued a permit without taking the knowledge test, however, you will be required to take the knowledge and drive test as part of your future license application.
If you are under 18, you must also bring your parents or guardians with you to licensing office when you apply. They must show proof of identity and proof of relationship to you and must also sign a Parental Authorization Affidavit. When last names are different, we require more documents proving relationship. The permit is valid for one year and you can only renew it once.
