New License for Teen Drivers
If you’re a teenager applying for your first driver’s license through your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), Department of Public Safety (DPS), Motor Vehicle Agency (MVA), Department of Revenue (DOR), or Secretary of State (SOS) office, you’ll need to satisfy your state’s teen driver requirements.
Whether your state has a graduated driver’s license ( GDL) program or not, you’ll likely be required to:
Complete a Driver’s Ed program.
Apply for a learner’s permit.
Obtain a provisional license.
Upgrade to your unrestricted driver’s license.
Each phase you’ll complete will help you gain the skills and knowledge necessary to pass the DMV written test and driving test required to get your unrestricted driver’s license.
In response to a high number of traffic accidents and deaths among teen drivers, most states have adopted GDL programs and young driver laws to help new teenage drivers gain valuable driving experience, develop safe, responsible driving habits, and avoid distracted driving situations.
