Getting your driver’s license should be exciting – and definitely not confusing or frustrating. In Connecticut, you must be 16 years old to begin the driver’s licensing process… so if you’re at least 16, let’s get started. Here’s a simple, step-by-step guide to get your driver’s license.

Itching to get your license but haven't turned 16 yet?

To get a head start, you can enroll in our Permit Prep Tutoring Course before you turn 16! This interactive class runs for 2-hours and is taught live on Zoom by a licensed TNS instructor to a small group. It will cover everything you need to know from the CT Driver's Manual, as well as the style of questions being asked on the test so you can get used to the format the DMV uses. There will be time to ask specific questions on anything you feel you need more clarity on. To learn more or enroll, go here.
