New Alabama Driver’s License

Any Alabama resident that is at least 15 years of age who wishes to operate a motor vehicle in the state of Alabama that has never had a driver’s license before or had one from another state or Country that is two or more years expired. Without a currant Alabama driver’s license it is illegal for residents to operate a motor vehicle within the state.

Which License is for you?

Be sure that you choose the correct license when you start the application process. There are several different kinds designed for different types of vehicles such as general vehicles, commercial vehicles, and motorcycles. Some of the biggest factors in choosing which license to get is age and the type of vehicle you wish to drive.

What are the Requirements for Getting a License?

To receive a full privilege Alabama driver’s license a person must complete several tests including a written, road, and vision test. You can also receive a Alabama driver’s license if you have a driver’s license from another state that has not been expired 6 or more months

The licensing process includes all of the tests, driver’s education course completion, a fee, and proper documentation.

Questions I need to take to get a License?

You will be required to take a series of tests when applying for any type of driver’s license. The testing process is divided into three parts:

  • The Written Test is a minimum of 30 multiple choice questions and will cover all traffic laws, rules and regulations found in the Digest of Alabama Motor Vehicle Laws
  • The Vision exam is given to all drivers’ license applicants for any type of license
  • You need to answer correctly 24 out of the 30 questions in order to pass.

Taking a Driver’s Education Course

New drivers in the state of Alabama must complete a state approved driver’s education course. These courses are offered by both public and private schools. It is also offered by private driving schools licensed by the DMV.

Preparing for the Written Test and what to Bring

Start by obtaining an Alabama driver’s handbook and study carefully. It is a good idea for most diving hopefuls to take some practice tests which are available online before taking on the real test. This will help the driving hopeful to better determine how ready they are for the real test. There are several things that you will need to bring with you to your test. Some of these things include:

  • Proof of Social security number
  • Proof of residency
  • Proof of identity

If under the age of 18 you will also need to bring a parent or legal guardian and have them fill out a parental consent form. Be sure that the address you provide is a physical address and not a P.O. Box which will not be accepted.

Proof of Insurance

If you intend to drive your own vehicle you must provide proof of insurance for the vehicle that you intend to drive for your test. You must always carry proof of insurance in your vehicle at all times when driving.

Taking the Drivers Test

The driving test portion of the new driver’s experience is one of the most dreaded and feared. With enough practice the road test should go off without a hitch. At this point the new driver has already logged a good many hours behind the wheel and before that passed the written test. So now the biggest factor is staying calm, this is often easier said than done but is not impossible. Be sure that all of your documents are present and in order before entering the testing facility. Also be sure that you have the appropriate fee with you. By doing these things ahead of time it will help keep down any stress that might come from a misplaced document or something similar.

Taking the Written Test

Make sure that you have all necessary documents before entering the testing facility. Study hard before hand and remember to stay calm during the test. Be sure to have the fee and all of the necessary documentation easily accessible. To prepare it is best to obtain a manual to study, and then take a few practice tests online to gage how well you know the material.
