Directions: To apply for a learner permit or driver license you must complete an Application for Driver License (MV-44). You must pass a vision and written test and pay the application and license fees.

The written test examines knowledge of the road signs, rules of the road, safe driving techniques and the laws about alcohol and drug use while driving.

To pass the written test, you must correctly answer at least 14 of the 20 questions asked, but you must correctly answer two of the four questions about road signs.
