Drivers Education Information
In order for your teenager to get a permit at the age of 15, they must be enrolled in a drivers ed course and must complete the classroom portion within 6 months of applying for their permit. Once they are enrolled, they will receive an affidavit of liability which will be signed by the drivers ed course instructor. You will need to bring that affidavit along with the teenagers birth certificate and social security card, and you as parents/step parents must come to the office to sign the affidavit in front of the drivers license examiner and also furnish your drivers license.
At that time, the teenager will take a written exam, (they are allowed to take two exams in one day) and after passing the exam, they will be issued a learners permit and will not be able to take their drive test for exactly one year.
To get you permit at 15/6 months you must complete either the 4 hour driver awareness course or complete the classroom portion of the approved drivers ed course.
No drivers ed requirements to get your permit at 16 years old.
Following is information on a couple of drivers ed courses and the 4 hour awareness course:
