Everything new drivers need to know

In Nevada, new drivers under the age of eighteen must complete the following steps in order to earn a driver's license. Questions? Call Us today!

STEP ONE  Provide proof of school attendance using NV DMV Form 301.

STEP TWO  Complete an accredited Driver's Ed Course. We recommend Safe2Drive. You can either enroll in a 30-hour online driver's ed course; OR enroll in the Nevada 15-5 program (15 hours of online driver's ed combined with 5 hours of behind-the-wheel driving training. Both satisfy your driver's ed requirements. If you enroll in our 15-5 program, you'll get the online driver's ed FREE.

STEP THREE  After successfully completing the Driver's Ed course, students over the age of 15 1/2 can apply for an Instructional ("Learners") Permit. To do that you'll need your Driver's Ed certificate, proof of identity (i.e. birth certificate, social security card), proof of residency (i.e. mail, report card, etc.) and then pass a Vision Test and a written Knowledge Test (with a score of 80% or higher). You can learn more by visiting the NV DMV online.

STEP FOUR  After receiving your Instructional Permit, you must complete 50-hours of behind-the-wheel driving before you can take your Skills (driving) Test. 10 of those hours must be taken after dark. Any driving instruction we provide counts toward your required hours! You can either use the NV DMV's log or a great app called RoadReady to document your hours.

STEP FIVE  Once you've completed your required hours of driving and turned 16 years old, you can take your Skills (driving) Test. If you choose to use your own vehicle for your test, you must schedule your test with the DMV. If you choose to use one of Cruise Control's vehicle for your test, we'll schedule the test for you.

FOR MORE INFO we recommend downloading the Nevada Official Driver Handbook and then giving us a call!
