Understanding Connecticut’s Driver’s Ed Classroom Requirements

In Connecticut, prospective drivers must be at least 16 years old to enroll in driver’s ed. All new drivers must complete either an 8-hour or 30-hour classroom program. If the student is under 18, they must hold their permit for 180 days (8 hour course) or 120 days (30 hour course) depending on their classroom program. They also need 40 hours of supervised driving practice with a parent, qualified trainer or professional driving instructor. After meeting these requirements, they can take the road test to obtain their driver’s license. Older than 18? You must hold your permit for 90 days prior to applying for your license.
