Getting a Vermont Learners Permit
Who needs a learners permit?
All new drivers that have never been licensed before in any state must first apply for and practice with a learners permit. Minors may apply as soon as their 15th birthday and will be required to hold the permit for at least one year. All other applicants must practice for at least 6 months.
Requirements for getting a learners permit
Each new driver is required to be at least 15 to apply for a permit and must bring the following documentation on the day of application:
- Proof of your identity including your full legal name, date of birth and age.
- Your social security card or documentation that you are legally allowed to live in the US.
- Two proofs of accepted documents showing your current Vermont address. Minors may have a sign parental residency affidavit and one parent proof of residency as an alternative.
All documents must be the original and found on the approved documents lists located at your local DMV office, online at the website or within your Drivers Handbook. Minors under the age of 18 will also be required to have parental consent to learn to drive and the parent must sign the application.
Driving with a VT learners permit
New drivers may drive with a parent or guardian, a licensed driving instructor or supervising driver over the age of 25 at any time. All new drivers are required to hold a learners permit for at least six months for practice time on roads and minors applying for a junior license must posses a valid permit for one year before applying. During the time drivers age 16 and 17 are using a learner’s permit, a driver’s education course must be successfully completed.
While driving your supervising driver must sign off in your driving log each time you practice. The log must be turned in when applying for a license so it is essential that the 40 hour requirement is fulfilled and documented. Ten of those hours must be at night and the 6 hours of driver’s education will not count towards the total. If your taking your drivers education course through your high school, many schools are now authorized to issue you the road test portion of licensing saving money and time so be sure to receive as much practice as possible before enrolling.

A learner’s permit will cost $17 plus the $30 exam fees for a total of $47 on the day of testing and application
