CT Driver's Education Courses

In Connecticut, you can start driver’s ed once you turn 16. All new drivers regardless of age must complete either an 8-hour or 30-hour classroom program, and your permit hold time will depend on the course you take and your age. Teen new drivers need 40 hours of supervised driving practice with a parent, qualified trainer, or professional driving instructor. After meeting these requirements, you can take the road test to obtain your driver’s license

In The Classroom:
