You Will Need
- DMV or Secretary of State office
- Driver education class
- Parent or guardian
- Practice tests
- Internet access (optional)
Visit your DMV office
Visit your local Department of Motor Vehicles or Secretary of State office and get a driver's manual to find out what you will be tested on.
Attend a class
Attend a driver's education class either at school or through a licensed company. Go online to find a driving center nearest to you.
Have a parent or guardian drive you around and demonstrate some of the scenarios demonstrated in the practice manual.
Study with your friends or have a family member quiz you using the manual and take several practice tests before returning to the DMV office.
Bring your ID
Remember to bring identification, such as a birth certificate or passport, to your exam.
Stay calm and read each question carefully. If you don't pass, you can retake the exam until you succeed in getting that learner's permit.
