Who needs to take these tests
In order to get a driver’s license, you must first get a learner’s permit. Here’s how to get your learner’s permit:
- Pass the DMV vision test.
- Pass the DMV knowledge test. The 25-question test is based on information in the Connecticut driver’s manuals. You’ll need to get at least 20 questions correct to pass.
These tests need to be taken in person and can only be scheduled at certain DMV locations.
Note: Anyone age 18 years or older needs to get an adult learner’s permit before obtaining a driver’s license. Adult learner’s permits are valid for two years. If you already have a driver’s license from another U.S. state or territory, Germany, Canada, or France, you can transfer your license to Connecticut without getting an adult learner’s permit.
