If you are under age 19, you must provide proof of successful completion of a state-approved driver education program and you must hold a learner's permit at least nine months before you can receive a driver's license.

The driver accompanying you may be 18 years of age if he or she is your legal guardian, brother, sister, half-brother, half-sister, step-brother or step-sister. The driver accompanying you must hold a valid driver's license, be alert and able to assist you and be legally permitted to drive.

When you apply for a learner's permit, you will also complete the application process for your driver's license and pay the fees for both the permit and license.

Who needs a license?

Every District of Columbia resident operating a motor vehicle on public streets and highways in District of Columbia needs an unexpired driver's license or Learner's permit. 

If you moved to District of Columbia, you must obtain a DC driver's license within 30 days of moving. If you have a valid out-of-state license, you will need to pass the eye examination and knowledge test to be able to obtain a DC license.

How you get your license

To obtain a District of Columbia Instruction Permit, you need to be at least 16 years old. You must clear a vision test, knowledge test and pay the required fee to receive your Learner's Permit . You have to show that you understand the meaning of District of Columbia traffic signs. If you want to see how you understand the signs, take the free sample test here.

Teen Drivers

If you are under 18, your parent or guardian must sign a consent form. If you are between the ages of 16 years and 20 years old, you will be placed in the Graduated Licensing Program also known as GRAD (Gradual Rearing of Adult Drivers). 

Prepare for written exam
