CT Learner’s Permit:

A learner’s permit is required before you begin practicing driving. A permit holder must carry a learner’s permit whenever he or she is operating a vehicle.

To obtain a learner’s permit:

  • You must be at least 16 years of age.
  • You must pass both a vision and a 25-question knowledge test.

The permit will be valid until you obtain a driver’s license or 2 years from the date it is issued (whichever comes first).

1. Drivers (Age 16 and 17)

  • Pass a vision test and a 25-question written knowledge test to get your permit.  If you fail the vision test, you can’t proceed to the knowledge test and will need to reschedule.

2. Adult learner’s permit

  • Have held your adult learner’s permit for at least 90 days Pass a vision and 25-question knowledge test. Take an eight-hour Safe Driving Practices Course. If you fail the vision test, you won’t be able to take the knowledge test. If you fail either the vision or knowledge test, you need to reschedule the tests online and pay the fees again.
