How do I get my Pennsylvania Driver's License?

First, you need to get a permit
The best way to start is by reading the the Pennsylvania DMV Handbook. You can get the online version or download the PDF. Then take a free practice test. Get 15 out of 18 multiple choice questions correct on the Pennsylvania driver license test to pass (you get unlimited attempts until you pass).

You must be at least 16 years old and have had a physical exam to apply for your Pennsylvania permit.

You will need to bring a few documents with you to your local Driver License Center when applying:

The non-commercial learner’s permit form DL-180 signed by the individual who conducted your physical exam. The signed parent or guardian form DL-180TD signed by your parent or guardian.
Proof of identity. Teens usually use their social security card and birth certificate. See form DL-180 for other options.
Two forms of proof of residency. See form DL-180 for various options.
A check, money order, or payment card. (Cash will not be accepted.)
You will also take an eye test while at the Driver License Center. If you wear glasses, do not forget to bring those!
Second, you need to get a Junior Driver’s License
Complete the supervised driving

You’ll be required to complete 65 hours of supervised driving with a guardian or driving school instructor. Ten of the 65 behind the wheel training hours must be at nighttime and five of these hours must be in and during bad weather. Our partner, Driver Training Services, offers great Behind the Wheel training packages that fulfill all the state requirements and make you a better, safer, and more confident driver. You can contact them at:

634 E. Main Street Lansdale, PA 19446
(215) 699-0836

Take the Road Test

You can schedule your road test online or by phone (717-412-5300). Or schedule a state approved third party to administer the test here. You’ll need to bring these documents with you:

Valid learner’s permit
The signed parent or guardian form DL-180C signed by your parent or guardian
Proof of insurance for the vehicle you’ll be driving during the test Proof of registration of the vehicle you’ll be driving during the test
Driver’s license of accompanying driver’s valid driver’s license.
You can take it up to 3 times.

Once you pass the behind the wheel test, you’ll be guided to the “picture area” where you’ll get your photo taken! Make sure you style your hair and wipe off any perspiration from your brow; this photo will be on your license for years to come.

You will receive your official Junior Driver’s License in the mail within 10 business days.
Third, get your Senior Driver’s License
Take a driver’s education course and pass the final exam. Our course is trusted by driving schools, parents, and the PA DMV. We’re licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (DOE). Get started today with our free express registration.

Once you turn 17½, you can apply for your Senior License!

You must hold your junior or provisional drivers license for at least one year before you can turn it in or have it automatically turned into a senior drivers license when you turn 18. For those under the age of 18, PennDOT will need three documents from you before they promote your license to an unrestricted senior driver’s license:

Your Pennsylvania Driver’s Education Certificate of Completion. (Sign up for our fun and engaging course here.)
A signed application for change from a junior driver’s license to a regular non-commercial license form DL-59. A signed affidavit of consent signed by a parent guardian or spouse who is at least 18 years old.
For those who have turned 18, you can complete the above process to have the “jr” removed from your license and receive an updated “senior” one in the mail.

Frequently Asked Questions

PA Teen Driver Course FAQs

Is your Pennsylvania Drivers Ed program licensed by the state of Pennsylvania?

Yes, we are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (DOE) and are an online curriculum provider for Driver Training Services. Note: You do not have to go to Driver Training Services to do our online driver education course. Once you complete the driver’s ed course, you will receive your certificate by email from our partner within 5 days of completing the course.

Who can take this online Pennsylvania course?

If you are 15-18 years old, living in Pennsylvania, are applying to get a senior license before you turn 18, then you can take this online Drivers Education course. We can point you in the right direction for driving school also. Take a drivers ed course that covers all the bases & get your education from the best!

We also offer our classes to adults aged 18 and up. You don’t have to be a teen to enroll in our entertainingly comprehensive driving program. We’ll offer you a fun learning experience either way. If you’re currently out of town in Virginia or a different state, you can still register. As long as you’re a Pennsylvania resident, our course qualifies you for official documentation in that area.

Can I take online Drivers Ed before I have a permit?

Yes, you can. You must be 16 to get your permit, but you can be under 16 to start the online driver education course.

We’d like to emphasize that no one is required to enroll in a course. So if you want to take our schooling at a much later date, there is no pressure. You might feel more comfortable becoming a new student after you turn 19. Individuals that make that choice won’t have less of an experience than those who are 14. No matter what age our courses are brand new to you, we’ll still help you obtain the official driving documentation you need to travel on the road. A teen must have a parent or guardian qualified to drive on the road to help them with vehicle operation.

What do I bring to the Driver License Center for my permit?

Make sure you bring your Non-Commercial Learner’s Permit Application (form DL-180), application fee (check, money order, or payment card. Cash not accepted), Parent/Guardian Consent Form (form DL-180TD), proof of Date of Birth, proof of Identification, two acceptable proofs of residency, and Social Security Card.

How long is your Pennsylvania Drivers Ed course?

Per Pennsylvania state requirements, the online Drivers Education course is 30 hours, just like all classroom courses. You can log in and out of this online drivers ed course as often as you like.

Do I have to complete the online course on one device?

No. You can use multiple devices, and switch between devices as often as you like for this Pennsylvania course.

When will I receive my Certificate of Completion?

The driver education certificate of completion is sent directly to you within 5 days upon completing the online course’s 30 hours and final exam. This certificate must be presented to the DOE along with a certificate proving completion of six hours of in-car training in order for you to qualify for an insurance discount and a senior license.

Are there any additional fees?

There are no other fees for our online drivers education course.

Next steps include taking a 6-hour behind the wheel training course. That cost varies depending on the school. It can be $200.00 to $600.00.

Can I drive alone with a permit?

No, you cannot. When you have your permit, you’re only allowed to drive with a licensed driver at least 21 years of age, a parent or guardian, or spouse at least 18 years old and holds a license with the same or higher class vehicle that appears on your learner’s permit.

Where do I take my driving test?

You can take your driving test at your local PennDOT or a state approved driving school (End-of-Course Skills Testing Program). You can also call your local school district to see if they are state approved by PennDOT and offer the test as a driving school.

When do I need to complete this online driver education course by?

You can complete this online drivers education course at your own pace, there are no due dates.

We’d like to emphasize that other states have different qualifications. Driving students in other territories have limitations on when they can complete their classes. The reason we’d like to make that clear is in case you suddenly need to move and have to be a driver in a different state. For more information on another territory, you can visit those FAQs on our website. We know that our students are busy with their grade schools and jobs, so we let them take their time at their convenience. Our classes can do that because Pennsylvania doesn’t have laws restricting the hours or days for completion.

What do I do next? How do I get a senior license?

If you already have your junior license, once you turn 18 it will automatically turn into a senior license!

How do I get my junior license?

Once you are at least 16 1/2 years old, have had your learner’s permit for at least 6 months, and have completed 65 hours of behind the wheel practice with a guardian or driving school (Form DL-180C), you can obtain your junior license by passing a road test. Schedule your driving test here or by calling Driver & Vehicle Services at 1-800-423-5542.

What are the restrictions on a junior license?

For the first 6 months you cannot drive anyone under the age of 18 unless a family member is in the car with you.

After 6 months, you cannot drive more than 3 passengers under the age of 18 a guardian is in the vehicle with you.

You cannot drive between 11 PM and 5 AM without a parent/guardian or spouse (18 years or older) as your front passenger, unless you are a member of a charitable service, a volunteer fire company, or employed during those hours. Your notarized affidavit or certificate of authorization must be with you at all times!

You cannot have more passengers in the vehicle than the number of seat belts.

The family member must be a legal driver with official documentation, but not if they exclusively completed a drivers ed class without receiving formal authorization. When you’re finished with driving school and receive your junior driving ID, you can have a single passenger in the vehicle under 18 if they are an immediate family member that lives with you. Getting a violation doesn’t require you to enroll in a drivers ed class again. The most you’ll get is a suspension, and you won’t be able to reduce the consequences by spending more time at our driving school. You can register for our course again to brush up on traffic rules. Driving on your own can take some getting used to, so make sure you take it slow!

What do I need to bring to get my junior license?

You’ll need to bring your learner’s permit, and the Parent or Guardian Certification Form (Form DL-180C). Also, make sure you have the registration paperwork, valid state inspection and emissions stickers, and insurance for the car you will be using for the driving test and that it is in good working condition. For more details, see the Pennsylvania Driver Manual online or download the PDF version.

Do I need to bring my certificate?

Yes, make sure you bring your drivers ed proof of completion certificate. You can log in to your online account and print it at any time.

What if I fail my drivers license test?

You can retake your Pennsylvania driver’s license test after 7 days. If you are over 18, you only have to wait one day to retest. If you happen to fail three times, you will have to get a new permit.
