Regular Driver Licenses

All persons operating a motor vehicle on any public street or highway must hold a valid driver license or instruction permit.  The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) administers the required physical, vision, physical aptitude, written, and driving tests.  Applicants for a driver license, identification card, or instruction permit must provide proof of age, identity, and lawful presence in the United States (see the Real ID Act subsection for more information on this requirement).  Driver licenses are categorized by vehicle type and by age group.  Vehicle type licenses include: personal/passenger, motorcycle, and commercial.  Age group licenses include adult and minor.  Visit the DMV's website for more information on driver licenses.  Use this map of state DMVs to find the DMV closest to you.  DMV appointments for nearly all locations may be scheduled online.
