Apply for a New Hampshire Driver License – Under 18
If you are under 18 years old, you can apply for a driver license once you have passed a New Hampshire approved Driver Education Program and completed forty (40) hours of additional supervised driving time. You are required to bring the following documents to your appointment:
- Application for Driver License. All relevant information must be given including legal name, date of birth and social security number.
- Proof of Identity. Provide two documents from the list of required documentation for the type of license you are applying for (REAL ID compliant or non-compliant).
- The original, green Driver Education Completion Certificate issued by your driver education instructor.
- A Parent or Guardian Authorization Certificate signed by a parent or guardian.
- A completed Driver's Out-Of-Class Log Sheet signed by a parent or guardian signed by a parent or guardian or the resources offered through the Parent's Supervised Driving Program.
You must pass a vision test, knowledge test and road test. An appointment is required for testing. Please see appointments and scheduling to schedule an appointment.
Prior to beginning the testing process, you will be required to pay your license fee and have your picture taken. If you successfully pass all tests, the DMV will issue you a 60-day, temporary paper license. Your permanent driver license will be mailed to your New Hampshire mailing address within 60 days.
