First Time Alaska Drivers License

An applicant for an original Alaska driver license must be at least 16 years of age and have held a valid driving permit for a minimum of 6 months. If an applicant is under 18 years of age, they must have parental consent to obtain a Provisional drivers license. An Application for Alaska Driver License, Permit or State Identification (Form 478) is required prior to issuance of a license, permit or state ID. The form is available at DMV offices.

In order to obtain an original Alaska license, an applicant must provide documentary proof of the following:

  • Legal name and Date of Birth
  • Secondary item as verification of the primary document
  • Their current residence address
  • Social Security Card

Testing Requirements

An applicant will be required to pass the written knowledge test (or present a valid Alaska learner’s permit), a road test, and a vision test prior to being issued a driver license. The license is valid for approximately five years, expiring on the applicants birthday. See the following page for fees. If you need information on where you can take a written or road test, please see the specific office information.


There is no fee to take the written test. There is $20 fee for a class D drivers license. All checks must include your name and address pre-printed to be accepted.
