Permit test requirements


You must have a "blue card" (certificate of enrollment) in order to take your permit test

You will need this for your permit test:  

1) Blue card
2) Two forms of ID which one has to be either a Passport or Certified Copy of Birth (NOT A PHOTOCOPY)
3) You need to know your Social Security Number but do not have to have Social Security Card
4) A parent or guardian

You cannot make an appointment for your permit test but you do need to be there by 3:45PM
1.  Requires teens to present a driving log to the exam staff at the time of the road test, verifying that the teen has driven the appropriate number of hours with an adult.  The log must contain the dates and lengths of driving time for the teen.  It must also be signed by the primary driving supervisor who verifies the teen has driven the appropriate number of hours. The driving log will be submitted with the application for the provisional license.  DPS will create a driving log for all students to use.  The log will be available on the DVS website, the Office of Traffic Safety website, and at driver exam stations.  We will also e-mail or mail each driver education program the log.

2   Increases the required driving hours for teens on an instruction permit to 40 total, and at least 15 hours must be at night, if the parental course is completed.  DPS will create a completion certificate that you may complete and give to the parents who complete the parental course.  We will e-mail or mail the certificate to all driver education programs.

3.  If the primary driving supervisor chooses to not complete the parent supplemental course, the primary driving supervisor must verify on the driving log that the teen has driven at least 50 hours, with 15 hours at night.

4.  The increased driving hours, driving log submission, and parental course completion verification are effective January 1, 2015.  This will be effective for students who complete classroom and behind the wheel instruction on or after January 1, 2015.  It will also be effective for parents who complete the parental course on or after January 1, 2015.  The commissioner will adopt rules related to the parental supplemental course completion certificate under the exempt rulemaking process by January 1, 2015.


It is suggested that each program begin keeping records of parents who complete a parental course prior to January 1.  It is also suggested that all programs begin letting students and parents know about the driving log requirement and have them begin keeping track of driving hours prior to January 1, 2015.

YOU CANNOT LOG THE 6 HOURS OF BEHIND THE WHEEL AND IF YOU FAIL TEST BRING YOUR LOG TO NEXT TEST.

Delano parents who attended the Wright County Safe Communities presentation in the past year will get credit for the new parent class.  You child will only have to log 40 hours (15 night) but you have to bring a card to the DMV showing that you completed the parent class.  You can contact us to recieve that card.
