Learning to Drive
What you need to know to practice driving in New Hampshire.
The adult accompanying the person who is learning to drive must sit in the front seat of the vehicle and must hold a current, valid driver license. The accompanying adult shall be liable for any motor vehicle violation committed by the unlicensed driver. For more information regarding this law, please see RSA 263:25.
Participating in an approved Driver Education program is fundamental to the process of learning to drive a motor vehicle. It is recommended that any person who is learning to drive for the first time take a New Hampshire Approved Driver Education Program. Driver Education is required for anyone under the age of 18, and for non-US citizens temporarily residing in New Hampshire who do not have previous driving experience.
