Getting a Michigan Learner’s Permit
You will be required to obtain a learners permit if you have never been licensed, have a foreign driver’s license or currently have a license from any state that has been expired for over 4 years.
Requirements for getting a learner’s permit
- You will be required to show four documents at the time you apply for your permit. These documents must include a social security card, one documents proving legal presence such as a birth certificate, one document proving your identity and one proving your residency status in Michigan. For minors applying for a permit the final two requirements can be hassling to locate, so the DMV has allowed school records to be provided as proof of identity and a report card mailed to your home for the residency requirement.
- You will also be required to show proof that you have successfully completed the first portion of driver’s education in order to receive your permit
- The written knowledge test must be passed with 40 correct questions out of 50 and a vision screening successfully completed
- Pay the fee for a permit in the form of a check, cash or money order.
Using your Michigan Learners Permit
Adult drivers are required to drive with a learners permit for at least 30 days before registering for the driving skills test. Because adults are not required to take a drivers education course, it is essential that you use this practice time wisely to assure you will pass the road test on the first try.
Minors must log 50 hours of driving time, ten of which must be after sunset while practicing with a learners permit. Parents now have the legal right in Michigan to request that a minor be held at a specific license level for a longer period of time, or that the teen driver is not allowed to continue pursuing a license at this time. As their driving coach, parents know whether or not a child is truly ready for the responsibility of driving and this is discovered through the practice portion done with a learners permit. Excellent coaching advice is available online through the DMV website to help you and your teen get the most out of the practice time you have.
