01.1.3 Utah Driver License Division Online Resources (Drivers Education)

Driver License - Learner Permit

The 2006 Utah State Legislature passed HB 363, entitled Driver License - Learner Permit Provisions. The bill, which became law on August 1, 2006, allows a person to obtain a Learner Permit "who is at least 15 years of age, has passed the knowledge test, has passed the physical and mental fitness test, and has paid the learner permit fee."

The Learner Permit entitles the person to drive if:
A) an approved driving instructor is occupying a seat beside the applicant;
B) the applicant?s parent or legal guardian, who must be a licensed driver, is occupying a seat beside the applicant; or
C) a responsible adult who has signed for the applicant under Section 53-3-211, and who must be a licensed driver, is occupying a seat beside the applicant.

OBTAINING LEARNERS PERMIT - ALL STUDENTS MUST OBTAIN A LEARNER PERMIT FOR THIS CLASS.

The Driver License Division shall issue a Learner Permit to a person who
is at least 15 years of age,
has passed the knowledge test,
has passed the physical and mental fitness test,
and has paid the learner permit fee of $15.00.

These tests are taken at a Driver License Division (DLD). Driver License Division Please click on this link to find your nearest DLD office.

A person with a Learner Permit may operate a motor vehicle with the applicant's parent or legal guardian.
Any person under 18 must have a Learner Permit for 6 months before they can obtain a license.

These links give you the official information about obtaining a license to drive in Utah.

It is the responsibility of the student to obtain the Learner Permit before he/she can drive with the driving instructor during the behind-the-wheel portion of the driver education program. If you have already obtained a Learner Permit, you will still need to complete the Introductory Assignment as a review of the Utah Drivers Handbook.

Completing the assignment presented in this Introduction will assist you in passing the knowledge test. You can take the Utah state knowledge test (Utah state written test) at the Driver License Division (DLD). The certified driver education at the high school may still give the written test; however, the EHS driver education teacher now requires students take the state written test at the DLD.
