- Take a vision test and written knowledge test at your Circuit Court Clerk’s office to get your Permit.
- Carry your Permit for 6 months while you log 60 hours of behind-the-wheel practice (including 10 hours at night) with your parent or other licensed adult who is 21 or older.
- Check online to see if appointments are available for your driving skills test. When you pass the road test, a Kentucky State Police License Examiner will put an “Intermediate” sticker on your permit.
