Obtain and study a driver handbook - get a copy from your state DMV/DOL or study it free online in our Driving Tutorials page. Test your tutorial-based knowledge thoroughly before proceeding further. We recommend you to test yourself online - for example, use this, first in the country free multi-language driver license training channel at web site - English, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian and Japanese languages supported. That training channel replicates real exam in DMV and would help you a lot to test and polish your knowledge before making a paid attempt in your state's DMV/DOL.
Once you feel prepared - make an appointment in your DMV/DOL office and pass the written exam. You can do it !

Step 5 - Complete Behind-The-Wheel Training.

Once you pass official knowledge test in DMV/DOL you can take a behind-the-wheel training. The number of training hours required in this step varies from state to state, so make sure to check your local DMV/DOL web site for up-to-date requirements or visit Driver Permit Law by State page to get all states at ones. Be prepared to have 30 - 50 hr of behind-the-wheel traing with at least 10 hours at evening time.
