Obtaining Your Nevada Instructional Permit

Nearly all NV drivers under 18 years of age need to complete an approved driver education course. You can enroll in these classes at age 15. The course must be within 30 miles of your home if offered or you may complete an online course. You may use a private course or one offered at many public schools.

You can obtain your instructional (learner’s) permit at 15 years, 6 months of age. You will need to present proof of name and birth, as well as your social security number. You must pass the vision and written test to obtain your license. A complete list of acceptable documents for proof of identity and SS are available online or in the $CSLINK.


The fee for your instructional permit is $21.25.


You may only drive with a driver who is 21 years or older. Permits are valid for one year. You must apply for a new permit each year at your local DMV office.
