Arizona Learners Permit & Written Test
In Arizona, you must be at least 15 ½ years old to receive your Instruction Permit. With this permit, you must be accompanied by a driver, in the passenger's seat, over the age of 21 with a Class A, B, C, or D license. Your Instruction Permit is valid for 12 months.
When you are 16 years of age, but less than 18, you can obtain your graduated driver license (Class G). The graduated driver license allows you to drive any vehicle that does not require a commercial or motorcycle driver license. For the first six months of your graduated license, you cannot operate a car between the hours between midnight and 5 a.m., unless you have a parent or legal guardian in the passenger's seat, who has a Class A, B. C, or D license or are driving to or from a sanctioned school-sponsored activity, work, sanctioned religious activity, or a family emergency. Also, for the first six months you cannot drive with more than one passenger in the vehicle unless they are your siblings or you have a parent or legal guardian in the passenger seat, with a Class A, B, C or D license.
Minors require an adult to sign your application for an instruction permit or driver's license. This adult must be either:
- One natural parent, if married to the other natural parent, or
- Both natural parents if they are not married, but share joint custody, or
- One natural parent with sole custody, or
If neither parent is living:
- A legal guardian, or
- Foster parent you live with, or
- Employer of the minor
This adult is responsible for any willful misconduct or negligence you commit, when you are driving. As such, the signing adult has the ability to cancel the minor's license at any time.
When you are 18 years of age, you can obtain your Class D full license, with no restrictions.
To obtain your Learner's Permit you must:
- Provide proof of identification and age,
- Provide proof of your Social Security number
- Pass the written test
Before you can obtain your graduated drivers license, you must also pass your road skills test.
