Getting a driver's license in Utah is a process that requires some preparation and planning. Depending on your age and whether you are a new resident or an international driver, the requirements may vary. In any case, you will need to pass a 50-question online test and, if you are under 19, complete an approved driver's education program. If you already have a Utah driver's license, you must renew it every eight years.
People over 19 may also opt to take 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. 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. If you have lost your Utah driver's license, you must visit a driver's license office and submit two pieces of identification to replace it. However, it is important to note that you should not wait more than six months to drive without a Utah driver's license, as this will require you to retake your license tests.
To avoid driving without a license and receiving a traffic ticket, make sure to renew your license before it expires. The cost of getting a driver's license in Utah depends on the type of license you are applying for and whether you are renewing or replacing it. For an original Class D license (even more than 6 to 8 years old), the cost is $25. For international drivers and new Utah residents, the cost may vary depending on the type of license they are applying for.
