What documents are required to obtain a Connecticut drivers license? Connecticut

The documents you'll need to bring to the DMV vary a bit according to your age, driving status, citizenship, and other factors.

So, here's a list of the type of documents you must have if you're 18 or older, a U.S. citizen, never held a license, and are applying for your first Connecticut drivers license. (If that doesn't fit you, consult the CT DMV site for details about what's needed for your situation.)

CT Driver License Documents

  • CS-1 Driver Education Certificate.
  • Certified birth certificate or valid passport.
  • One other acceptable form of identification (such as a state ID card).
  • One acceptable proof of your Connecticut address (such as a utility bill).
You must also provide your Social Security number or show an ineligibility letter.

A complete list of acceptable forms is included on the DMV site; don't bring photocopies.

Appointments Necessary?

You don't need an appointment to apply for your drivers license, or take the written license test.

However, you must set an appointment for your driving test. You can make the appointment at a DMV office. Be aware you can't take the knowledge and the road tests on the same day.

Although it's not required, you might want to take a practice test (available online through many sources) to help prepare you for the written test.
