    A driver's permit authorizes a person 17 years or older to drive a motor vehicle in Trinidad.

    How do I apply for Driver's Permit in Trinidad?

    There are two stages for obtaining a driver's permit. First you must apply for a Provisional Permit (or learner’s permit) that allows you to drive in the company of an experienced driver. After you have been issued a Provisional Permit, you can apply for a Driver's Permit.

    The age is 17. However, contrary to some of the other answers, your US driver's permit is valid for 3 months (90 days). If you're staying for more than 3 months, you have to apply for a permit from a Licensing office in T&T.

    learners permit u get just as u register, so u can drive right away once someone who has a valid licence is in the car with u..

    When I got mine you had to be 17 years old. That was in the mid '80....... You can use your permit in the US but only for 30 days..
