Want to get your Kansas driver license? Aceable’s Kansas Permit Test Prep can help you ace the permit exam. This drivers ed course will teach you the rules of the road whenever and wherever you want. You’ll get 20 levels of interactive lessons and unlimited practice tests designed to prepare you for the Kansas written knowledge exam.
Important: Drivers ed is NOT a requirement for getting a Kansas license. Minors may choose to take a state-approved drivers ed course instead of taking the knowledge test and/or for the purpose of qualifying for a Restricted License at age 15 instead of 16. Aceable’s Kansas Permit Test Prep is a mobile study aid. It’s the perfect course for busy adults and a great study tool for teens.
HOW TO GET YOUR KANSAS DRIVER LICENSE (AGES 14-17)
- Get your paperwork together for the DMV. Bring proof of your identity, lawful status in the U.S., Social Security number, and 2 forms of proof of your Kansas residence. Find examples of acceptable documents here. If you’re 14 or 15 years old, you’ll also need to get parental approval.
- Take a vision test and written knowledge test at your local DMV office to get your Instruction Permit. You can choose to skip the written test if you submit a completion certificate from a state-approved drivers ed course.
- Carry your Instruction Permit while you log 25 to 50 hours of behind-the-wheel practice with your parent or other licensed adult who is 21 or older. You’ll need 25 hours if you took drivers ed and plan to get your Restricted License at age 15, 50 hours if you will take the driving test at age 16 or older.
- Once you’ve kept your permit for at least a year and you’re 16 or older, you may take your driving skills test to get a Restricted License. Remember to bring your own registered and insured vehicle for the test. If you want to apply for your Restricted License early, at age 15, you must show proof of passing an approved drivers ed course.
- You can upgrade to a regular Driver License with full driving privileges when you turn 17 or when you’ve had your Restricted License for at least 6 months, whichever comes first. Congrats!
