If you have decided that it is time that you apply and get your driver’s permit, you will probably not know where to start. This will provide you an outline of how to get started. It will also indicate what to expect and what documents you will need to have handy.
The basic requirements may differ slightly depending on your country and the state you are in. To make sure of the initial steps you will have to take you could go over to your local Department of Motor Vehicles and inquire from them what your first step will be. If not, you could also approach the driving School from which you are hoping to follow through with your driving lessons and they will be able to assist you in sorting out the documentation you will need and provide you with the hand book that they will provide to you as part of the learners package you will be paying for.
Before moving on to the practical lessons they will first tell you to go through the handbook and get ready for the written examination. This handbook consists mainly of road and other rules that you will need to look through and become extremely familiar with. It will probably bore you to death but knowing all these rules will not only save you from making a big mistake on the road one day but also help you to get through the written paper on the first shy without having to repeat it and prolong the entire process.
The next and final step after passing the written paper will be receiving your permit. This step will have to hand in the basic required documents that will prove as to where you are from, your age and whether or not you are medically fit to drive. Other requirements will differ by state or country and will be communicated to you by either your driving school or the individual who will be in charge of issuing your permit. You will need to hand over a copy of out identification which will include information such as your date of birth and whether you are considered legal to drive, if not it is required that you possess the signature of your parent or legal guardian as proof. You will also need a medical certificate, certified by a medical officer stating that you are fit enough to be behind the wheel. However he or she will mention if you were wearing glasses and have any ailments worth mentioning on the application. Once they have gone through the necessary documents and snapped your picture, you will receive your permit into your hand and you can now move onto the practical part of the process.
