Finally On The Road!!

Recommended Posts

Congrats! How old are you? What was/is the current process in getting your license. 

 

Reason I ask is.. I am kinda lost. I've been reading up the general process in getting your license for my state but I'm still confused.

 

I'm 23, recently approved.. still waiting for my card to apply for my SSN. Once i get that, am i supposed to go to the DMV and take the written test?

If i pass I get a permit? then I return and take the driving portion of the test to actually get my license?

 

Would be awesome if someone could clear me up on that.. I always though of "permits" being for anyone under the age of 18, taking drivers ed classes.. etc..

I live in NY so it if you are in another state, it might not b the same but for me, after I got work card in mail I went to social security office nd I applied for social security card. After I received my social in the mail I went to dmv nd filled out a form for a permit since in my state its required to have a permit before you can get your license. Then I showed my six points of id, like your ead card is 2 points and so on, then I got a number then I waited till I got called up nd took written test. After that I was told I passed nd I got a permit printout the same day to use until my official one arrives in mail. Also here in NY I can apply for my license right away after my permit since im over the.age of 18, as long as I get my 5 hour classes to get a certificate needed to get your license.then you cant schedule an appointment to take your road test. If you pass road test u get prinout license same day till your official one arrives in mail nd thats it, to the road.

Ah crap sorry thought i put it somewhere in my post. I'm in North Carolina.

Yep the state which actually removed the ability to get licenses for DACA recipients back in March. Heh least i can get one now. 

 

I think i've got the process down though. Basically.. There's a written test and a driving test.. once youve passed both.. then you get your license. I'm sure there's a few details im missing but i'll keep reading the NC DMV website. Thanks!
