Hi there, my name is Monique Willis. Welcome. I am here to talk to you about the history and future of education. The early schoolhouses introduced students to an educational journey unlike anything they have ever known. Most kids would learn the family trade and little else in those days. With school, they could learn information outside their families’ wheelhouse to pick up a new trade or simply expand their knowledgebase. On this site, I will talk about the way education has evolved and will continue to change through the years. Plan to visit my site on a regular basis to learn more. Thanks for visiting.
Driving a car, truck, or SUV requires a driver's license just about everywhere you go. In some states, you must have completed a driver's education course to even take the driver's test. There are different ways to take the class depending on your location and the requirements of you state but generally, the following options apply.
The age requirements from state to state may be different but in order to get a license in most states, you must be at least 16 years old. Some state will require new drivers with no driving classes to wait until they are 18 years old just to take the test. The age requirement is typically set as a minimum age but some state do have a maximum age that you can renew your driver's license without taking a test.
Public Driving School
Some high schools offer drivers education to qualifying students. Often students that are 15 years old can take the class if they have obtained a learner's permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles. The permit is not too hard to get. Most of the time all you need is a birth certificate and permission from your parent or guardian. There is typically a fee to take the class that covers the fuel and insurance cost for the class and in some states, completion of driver's education is required to take the test for your driver's license.
Private Driving Schools
If you are an adult that has never had a driver's license and want to take a driving test, you may want to find a private driving school. Often these schools are geared toward adults but if you live in an area that does not offer driver's education, you can enroll a teenager but there may be special requirements from the school so check with them to find out what they require and what the cost is going to be.
Taking the Driver's Test
Once you have completed your driver's course, you will need to take the certificate from the class to the Department of Motor Vehicles along with your birth certificate and learner's permit. Let them know that you want to take the driver's test and what kind of license you want to get. They will give you the written test and if you pass that, you will have to take the driving test and then an eye test before your license is issued. Again, the process might be slightly different in your state but this is typically what you can expect.
