HOW TO GET YOUR VIRGINIA DRIVER LICENSE (AGES 15-18)
- Take a state-approved drivers ed course.
- Get your paperwork together. Bring certified documents proving your identity, Virginia residency, lawful presence in the U.S., Social Security number, and a parent or guardian to sign your application. Find examples of acceptable documents here.
- When you’re at least 15 and 6 months old, you can apply for your Learner’s Permit. Take a vision test and written knowledge test at your local DMV office. The state fee is $3 plus $4 per year of license validity.
- Carry your Learner’s Permit for 9 months. If you’re under 18, your parent or guardian will need to certify that you got 45 hours of behind-the-wheel practice. Make sure at least 15 of those hours are at night.
- After you’ve had your permit for 9 months, you will get a notice saying when and where to appear in court for your Juvenile Licensing Ceremony. You will get your permanent license at this time and will be allowed to drive unsupervised.
- Keep your driver license until it expires and needs to be renewed. When you’re 18, curfews and passenger restrictions will be lifted and you’ll have full driving privileges.
