Obtaining a Connecticut License for the First Time
(18 Years of Age or Older)
NEW PROCESS: You will not receive a permanent driver license or ID card while at a DMV, AAA locations, Milford and North Haven Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union, Stamford (The WorkPlace, Inc.) or West Haven City Hall. It will arrive through the mail. You may retain your expiring license or ID provided there are no changes other than address. For more on this, please see Central Issuance.
To obtain a Connecticut Driver's License, you must first obtain an Adult Learner's Permit.
You can then make an appointment online to take the road test. Road testing is only offered at DMV Hub offices.
