To apply for a driver license, you must:
You must pay to:
Your static visual acuity will be tested during the application process. The department uses wall charts and the Optec 1000 vision tester to screen driver license applicants for a best-corrected distance visual acuity of no worse than 20/40. You may use your glasses or corrective contact lenses to pass this test. If you do not pass the vision screening standard, you will be referred to an optometrist or ophthalmologist to have your vision further tested.
Written knowledge test
Your knowledge of traffic laws and safe driving practices will be assessed during the application process. The written knowledge test is available in more than 30 different languages and is also available on audio tape in many of these languages. However, if you take a non-English or oral test, you must also complete an additional test of your ability to recognize the meaning of common traffic signs in English.
Over 200 items are scored on the driving test. You may only make 15 or fewer errors to pass the test. If you make a serious driving error on the driving test, you will be automatically disqualified. These errors include:
You are periodically (usually every 4 or 5 years) required to renew your driver license. You will have to pay a license renewal fee and may have to take a vision, written, or driving test. If you fail the written test three times or are unable to pass the visual acuity test during a license renewal, you will be required to take a behind-the-wheel driving test.
Provisional driver license*
A driver license issued to a person younger than 18 years of age is called a provisional license.
To obtain a provisional instruction permit you can be no younger than 15-1/2 years old. In addition to other licensing requirements, provisional license applicants must complete supervised behind-the-wheel driving practice.
