North Carolina Learners Permit & Written Test
For drivers 18 years of age or older, previously licensed in another state if you've recently moved to North Carolina, started working in the state, and/or become a resident of North Carolina, you are required to obtain a North Carolina drivers license within 60 days. To apply for your license, you must visit a DMV drivers license office.
In North Carolina, even previously licensed drivers are required to pass a written drivers license examination, as well as a road signs recognition test. If your drivers license has been expired for 12 months or more, you will also be required to take a highway knowledge test.
To speed up the studying process for these tests, use DMVCramCourses.com's drivers ed online study materials, with study guides and drivers license practice tests. Why read through hundreds of pages of driving rules and regulations, when you know most of this material from your previous state? Our study guides and drivers ed online practice tests are based on actual DMV test questions and answers, and specifically highlight the differences in regulations in the state of North Carolina. Additionally, our drivers ed study guides and practice tests are available on your mobile device or other mobile computing devices, allowing you to study for your drivers test anytime – anywhere.
To obtain your North Carolina drivers license you must:
- Visit a North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles office,
- Bring 2 documents to provide proof of your identity and age, showing your full name and date of birth,
- Bring proof of our Social Security number,
- Provide proof or residency (for those North Carolina residents who are not American citizens, you must also provide documentation issued by the federal government indicating legal presence),
- Provide proof of liability insurance,
- Pass a vision test,
- Pass a traffic signs recognition test,
- Pass a driving knowledge written test, which DMVCramCourse.com's study guides and drivers license practice tests will help you prepare for, and
- Pass a road skills driving test.
You will receive your new North Carolina drivers license, when you turn in your out-of-state license, and pass the written test. You are NOT required to take a Road Skills test, if you had a valid drivers license in another state.
