HOW TO GET YOUR MASSACHUSETTS DRIVER’S LICENSE (AGES 16-17)
- Enroll in a state-approved drivers ed course at your high school or commercial driving school. It should include 30 hours of classroom instruction and 18 hours of in-car instruction (12 hours behind the wheel and 6 hours of observation).
- When you’re at least 16, take a vision test and 25-question knowledge test at your local RMV (Registry of Motor Vehicles). You’ll need to bring an original document proving your date of birth, Social Security card, and a permit application signed by your parent or guardian. Find examples of acceptable documents here.
