Basic Drivers License Information

To earn a drivers license in your state, you will need to complete an application form with the required licensing fee and visit your DMV, BMV, RMV, or MVA office. But first of all, make sure that you meet all the requirements. You're old enough and have all the needed documents.

There is a special license called a Learner's Permit (also known as an Instruction Permit in some states) which allows you to practice driving with another adult driver before you are ready for your driving test. In most of the states, a drivers license is valid for 4-5 years and expires on your birthday. You must renew your license before it expires.
