Prepare for the Road Test

You will not be permitted to take the driving test unless the motor vehicle you furnish is properly equipped, in good mechanical condition, and properly registered and inspected.

Teen Drivers

Your decision to obtain a Learner’s Permit or a Junior Driver’s License carries with it, one of life’s greatest social responsibilities. You are committing to: maintaining a safe operating vehicle that meets Vermont’s emissions standards, carrying liability insurance, and always obeying the rules of the road and adopting habits that eliminate driving distractions.

Learner's Permit

If you want to drive in Vermont and you do not have a license, you will have to get a Vermont Learner’s Permit. You must be at least 15 years old to take the test. You must also be a Vermont Resident or a resident of another State enrolled in a Vermont Driver Education & Training.

Graduated License Laws

Individuals under the age of 18 are subject to the provisions of Vermont's Graduated License laws, which are indicated below:

An individual 15 years of age or older may operate a motor vehicle if they hold a valid Learner's Permit and are accompanied by one of the following people (riding in the vehicle beside the driver):
