How many hours behind the wheel must I clock with a DMV driver training professional?
Each state follows different requirements for new drivers. Some require a set number of behind-the-wheel hours with a DMV driver training professional. Others mandate no such requirements, allowing you to gain driving experience under the supervision of a parent or guardian with a valid drivers license. The states that don't require professional driving instruction usually don't require driver education.
Before you can worry about behind-the-wheel training, however, you must first worry about obtaining a learners permit. A drivers permit allows you to operate a vehicle under the supervision of another licensed driver. To obtain a permit you must first pass a written test (also known as a knowledge test). These tests feature multiple choice questions based on information contained in your state's drivers manual.
After studying the manual, you should then take a practice permit test. These can be found online for free. Take as many practice tests as needed to make you feel exam-confident. Then once you pass the actual test you can shift focus towards behind-the-wheel instruction.
