The Road to Getting Your Nevada's Driver's License

Here you'll find a roadmap to earning your driver's license that includes everything you'll need to know to be prepared. So, read on, relax and enjoy the ride - becoming a safe driver is a very rewarding and exciting journey!

Step One: Complete our state-approved driver education course

Students can enroll in a driver education course at age 15. Our course is 100% online and is licensed by the Nevada DMV. Review the material in each chapter and take the final exam as many times as you need to get a passing score of 80% or higher.

Step Two: Take the permit test at your local DMV

After you've completed your driver education course, it's time to take your permit exam as soon as you turn 15½. Here are the materials you'll need to bring with you:

  • A completed Driver's License, Driver Authorization Card, or Identification Card Application (Form DMV-002)
    • Proof of your identity and Nevada residential address
  • You will need your certified, U.S. issued birth certificate, your Social Security Card and two additional documents to prove your address
  • Pay $23.25 for the licensing fee and $26 for the testing fee
  • Driver education course certificate of completion (we will provide this via email as soon as you pass the course)

Step Three: Complete your 50-hours of behind-the-wheel training

Nevada requires you to drive 50-hours with an adult at least 21 years old who has been driving for at least one year. Of these, 10 hours must be completed at night. Don't forget to track your progress on a Beginning Driver Experience Log (Form DLD 130).

Step Four: Get your Nevada Driver's License!

After you:

  • Are at least 16 years old
  • Have held your learner's permit for at least 6 months
  • Have completed your 50 hours of behind-the-wheel training
  • Have had no accidents, traffic violations, or alcohol/drug convictions within the past 6 months

Congratulations! You're ready to schedule your road test with your local Nevada DMV and get your driver's license!
