Obtaining a Youth Operator Driver License

Anyone who is between 16 and 21 years of age will be issues a “Youth Operator” license after passing an approved driver’s education course. This license will expire on your 21st birthday, at which time you must apply for a full non-commercial license.

Youth Operator Restrictions

  1. Shall not operate a motor vehicle between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.
  2. During the first six months after issuance of the license, the holder shall not operate a motor vehicle with more than one passenger less than 25 years of age who is not a member of the holder’s family unless accompanied by a licensed responsible adult who is at least 25 years of age.

Practice Driving

An individual may practice driving of a non-commercial vehicle on New Hampshire roadways provided they have attained the age of 15 1/2, carry proof of age, and are accompanied on the front seat by a parent, legal guardian, or other licensed adult who is 25 years of age or older.

An individual under the age of 18 is required to complete 20 hours of supervised practice driving, in addition to the 10 hours required by driver education. The 20 hours must be logged, and supervised by a parent or legal guardian (or if there is no parent or legal guardian, a licensed adult over the age of 25).

What To Bring To Your Driver Test

While we recommend you bring your $CSLINK to quickly review test questions, you must bring the following:

  • All driver licenses issued to you by any state.
  • Two forms of positive identification: official papers which show your name, address, and date of birth (in most cases a photo license from another state and a birth certificate is acceptable).
  • A vehicle which is legally registered and inspected in New Hampshire and is in good running condition. The vehicle must be of the proper class for the type of license you are being tested for.
  • A licensed driver to drive the test vehicle for you to and from the testing site. That person should remain at the test site until the road test has been completed. (If you are properly licensed by another state you may drive yourself to the testing site.)


You will be required to take a vision, written and road test to obtain your NH license.
