Getting a driver's license in Utah requires you to take certain steps and meet certain requirements. To get an unrestricted driver's license, you must have a learners permit for 90 days and practice driving for 40 hours. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you must hold your learners permit for at least six months before you can get your Utah driver's license. To get started, you should schedule an appointment for the learners permit and bring your application.
Requirements for international drivers and new Utah residents can be viewed on the DMV website. Unless you are going to or from work or school, you must have a licensed driver 21 or older in the front seat or in case of an emergency. Anyone under the age of 19 must complete an approved driver's education program before obtaining a driver's license in the state of Utah. Upon completion of the course, the student will receive a certificate and is eligible to take the final practical test in a Driver's License Division office or with an external evaluator. People over the age of 19 may also want to complete driving education as preparation for the road or to avoid the need to wait 90 days after their permit has been issued to obtain a driver's license. Regardless of where you choose to take your driving test, you'll still need to go to the DMV to get your Utah driver's license.
If your out-of-state driver's license has expired, you may also be asked to pass the driving skills test. Getting a driver's license in Utah is not difficult if you know what steps to take and what requirements you need to meet. Make sure to schedule an appointment for your learners permit and bring your application. If you are under 19 years old, make sure to complete an approved driver's education program before taking the final practical test. People over 19 may also want to complete driving education as preparation for the road.
