Instruction Permit Issuance

Fast and Easy Learner's Permits for New Arizona Drivers

Getting an Instruction Permit is an Important Milestone

Having an instruction permit allows you to legally drive in the state of Arizona when accompanied by a licensed passenger 21 years or older. To qualify for an instruction permit, applicants must:

  • Be 15 years and 6 months of age to be eligible to apply.
  • Study the Arizona Driver License Manual
  • Pass the written test with a minimum score of 80%, which is 24 out of 30 multiple choice questions correct.
  • Pass the vision test at our office at the time of getting their permit issued.

Simply swing by our office and we’ll have your instruction permit issued in no time.

What to Bring:

  • A completed Arizona Driver License Application
  • Proof of legal presence, which could be the following:
    • Original birth certificate or unexpired U.S. passport
    • Authorized presence documents
  • A parent or legal guardian if you are under the age of 18. In cases of divorced parents with joint custody, both must be present. If one can’t attend, we’ll need to verify their notarized signature on the back of the completed Arizona Driver License Application. For guardianships, bring the adoption decree or guardianship paperwork.

If you still need to take the written test, we have a comfortable testing environment right here at our office, where we can issue your instruction permit on the same day when you pass the written test.

Statewide, temporary credentials are issued for immediate use until the official ones arrive in the mail.

Schedule an appointment to minimize your wait time during peak hours or walk in at your convenience.

Complete the Arizona Driver Application before or at our office. Bring proof of identity which can be an original birth certificate or a U.S. passport, or proof of authorized presence. Feel free to contact us to verify whether the documents you intend to bring are acceptable.

A vehicle instruction permit for a vehicle is valid for twelve (12) months from the date of issuance.
A motorcycle instruction permit is valid for seven (7) months, which can be renewed once within a 24-month period.

If you’re under 18 and have an out-of-state instruction permit, you’ll need to take and pass the Arizona written test. There’s a required wait of 6 months from when your permit was issued or until you turn 18 (whichever comes first) before you can take the road test. Good news, though: the time you’ve already held your out-of-state permit counts towards this waiting period.

If you’re 18 or older, you can take the road test on the day you pass the written test, provided you are prepared and meet all other safety and documentation requirements.

If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. In cases of divorced parents with joint custody, both parents must be present. If one parent is unable to attend, they should complete the relevant section on the back of your Arizona Driver License Application and have their signature notarized where indicated.
