Getting A Virginia Learner’s Permit
You can get your VA driving learner’s permit when you at 16.5 years old. It allows you to drive a car with a licensed 21-year old in the front with you. If the driver is your guardian, brother or sister, then can be 18-years old as long as they have a license.
Applying For Your Permit
To apply for a VA learner’s permit you must show two proofs of ID, one proof of legal presence in the US and one proof of residency. You must also show proof of your social security number. You must also take a two-part written test and pass a vision test. The easiest way to study for the written test is with the $CSLINK.
Getting Your Full License
If you are between age 16 years, 3 months and age 18, your driver education certificate and a valid learner’s permit allow you to drive without a licensed driver beside you provided you have held your learner’s permit for nine months and the certificate is signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Your parent’s or legal guardian’s signature on the certificate certifies that the statements made and the information submitted on the certificate are true and correct. Certifying false statements can result in prosecution.
After you have held your permit nine months, turned age 16 and 3 months and completed driver education, you will receive a notice that tells you when to appear in court for a licensing ceremony where you will receive your permanent driver’s license.
