    I would suggest taking drivers ed if your school has it. get your permit now, then when you are 18 get your lisence. your permit will last you 6 mo. a parent or freind should be able to help you get the required amount of hours

    Usually you just go to the DMV or DPS and schedule a day/time to take the written exam. Often, they will give you your state's study guide for free when you sign up for the exam. Take the test, and you will get a permit. Most states require a certain amount of time behind the wheel with another licensed driver. Once you have enough hours logged, you can take the practical exam, in which an official grades you while you drive. Once you pass that test, you get your license. Graduated license laws vary by state, so check into whether you are subject to those by asking the DMV or DPS employees or looking in the study guide booklet. Alternatively, you can go to a driving school which will prepare and administer all the exams for you, as well as provide practice behind the wheel that counts towards your hours on the learner's permit. This can be expensive, but worth it if you've never driven before. If you have been driving without a license for a while, just go the direct route.

    hmm. it depends what state you live in i think. for me, i had to wait 6 months after i got my permit before i could get my license. and then when i got my license, it was provisional, so i had curfews and alcohol and cell phone restrictions. check the dmv website or something. oh and plus you prob have to take drivers ed somewhere
