Step 1: Take Utah drivers education

If you're 18 or younger, you must take a DPS-approved Utah drivers education course to earn your license. The drivers ed program consists of a classroom part, 6 hours of in-car observation, and 6 hours of drivers training with an instructor.

If you're 19 or older, you have two options. First, you can hold a learners permit for 90 days and practice driving with a licensed driver for 40 hours (10 hours at night) before you can apply for your drivers license. Or, second, you can complete the drivers ed program and skip the 90-day period with the learners permit and 40 hours of practice driving! Learning with our online course and with a professional driving instructor helps you become a skilled and confident driver.

DriversEd.com lets you complete the classroom portion conveniently online through our quality, interactive course. Enjoy a fun, fast, and easy way to complete your drivers ed class.

Once you earn a learners permit, you can start in-car driving lessons with our driving school affiliate–A-1 Driving School. Experienced instructors teach you basic maneuvers, how to manage driving risk, and everything you need to learn to become a safe driver.

You must be at least 15 years old to take drivers education.

You choose when to start your in-car driving lessons:

Before you can begin in-car driving lessons with a licensed driving instructor, you will need to pass a written learners permit test at your nearest Utah Drivers License Division.

You can begin the online portion of drivers education without your permit and whenever you're ready, take the written permit test.

Once you pass the required written exam and pay a $15 fee, you'll be issued a learners permit, valid for one year.

To be eligible for the learners permit, you must:

  1. Be at least 15 years old.
  2. Provide a state-certified birth certificate, social security card, and one additional identity document (such as a school ID, preferably with photo). No photocopies of these documents will be accepted.
  3. Provide proof of Utah residency.
  4. If under 18, parent/guardian must sign application and financial responsibility affidavit.
  5. Pay the applicable fee.
  6. Pass all medical and vision screenings.
  7. Pass the written knowledge test.

Your learners permit comes with the following restrictions:

  • If you are under 18, you can only drive with an approved driving instructor, parent or legal guardian with a valid license, or the responsible adult who signed for the learners permit with a valid license.
  • If you are over 18, you can drive with another licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and occupying the right front passenger seat.

Once you complete the online class, the 6 hours of in-car driving lessons and 6 hours of in-car observation, we'll issue you a Certificate of Completion for free.

Step 2: Practice driving under supervision

Next, you will need to practice driving under supervision in accordance with the restrictions of your learners permit. If you are under 18, you must hold your learners permit for at least 6 months and you must log at least 40 hours (10 at night) of supervised driving. The driving instruction you complete with A-1 Driving School counts toward this 40 hour supervised driving requirement.

If you are 19 or older, you can either hold a learners permit for at least 90 days and complete 40 hours (10 hours at night) of driving practice with a licensed driver, or you can complete our drivers education program. Our interactive online course is designed to help you learn, and A-1 Driving School offers professional driving instructors to help you gain skill and confidence behind the wheel.

Step 3: Take the driving test for the Utah drivers license

Now it's time to schedule an appointment for your driving test at your nearest Drivers License Division.

To be eligible for the Utah drivers license, you must:

  1. Be at least 16 years old.
  2. Provide a state-certified birth certificate, social security card, and one additional identity document (such as a school ID, preferably with photo). No photocopies of these documents will be accepted.
  3. Provide proof of Utah residency.
  4. Have held your learners permit for at least 6 months if you are under 18.
  5. Have your parent/guardian sign your application and financial responsibility affidavit, and certify that you have had at least 40 hrs (10 at night) of supervised driving practice.
  6. Present a drivers education Certificate of Completion (all first time drivers).
  7. Pay the applicable fee.
  8. Pass the driving test.

Once you pass the driving test, you'll be issued a Utah drivers license!

Minor Driver Restrictions–If you're under 18, your drivers license will be subject to the following restrictions:

  • For the first 6 months, you cannot have any passengers in the car unless the passenger is an immediate family member.

    Exceptions: you must have a note from a parent or guardian giving permission to drive with passengers directly to and/or from a school or religious activity, have a licensed driver at least 21 years of age sitting next to you, be driving for agricultural work, or driving for an emergency.

  • Until you turn 17, you cannot drive between the hours of midnight and 5:00 a.m. Exception: You may drive directly to and/or from school, a religious activity, or your place of employment, or have a driver at least 21 years of age sitting next to you, be driving for agricultural work, or driving for an emergency.
