Nevada Teen Driving Information and Tricks


The vast majority of all Nevada beginner drivers under the age of 18 have to complete a driver education course. It is possible to enroll for such a program at the age of 15, with the exception of home-schooled students, who can enroll at a different age provided they are schooled by a certified specialists. So if you have the proper age, you can finally start thinking about how you could get your driver’s license faster. There are several ways to do this if you are interested in teen driving classes. You can either attend a classroom course, and complete 50 hours of behind-the wheel experience. You could also do an online course and then get the 50 hours of experience behind-the-wheel, or you could do 100 hours of driving experience in the eventuality that classroom course is not available in a 30 mile radius.

Classroom courses can be taken at different public or private high-schools, or a DIV-licensed professional driving school. In most situations, you have to attend 30 hours of classroom courses, but there are also schools that only require 15 hours of classroom instruction.

Behind the Wheel Experience:

As we mentioned, it is imperative to complete 50 hours of behind-the-wheel experience. In order to do this, you will need the presence of a licensed driver, who is at least 21 years old, or has been licensed for at least one year, at all time. Also, 10 from the 50 hours have to be completed during total darkness, to help you accommodate with driving during the night (the rule is not applicable to motorcycles). In order to keep track of your experience, you have to complete the form provided by DMV, and have it signed by a parent or guardian to obtain full license after the teen driving course. Also, if you want to make an insurance policy, and the company asks you for a separate log, you will have to make two.

Instruction Permit, Tests, and Renewal/Cancellation tricks:

If you want to get a head-start with driving, you can easily obtain an instruction permit, at the age of 15 and a half, by presenting proof of your identity (your birth certificate or social security card). Drivers have basically two options for proving their identity. They can either apply for a standard Driver’s license, or they can apply for a Driver Authorization Card, which is not valid for identification.

In order to apply for the standard Driver’s license, you must first pass the vision and written tests, and ask for a legal guardian or parent to sign the financial responsibility section. The fee for licensing is quite low: 22$. There is also a fee for the vision and written test, which costs 25$, and a re-test will cost 10$. Once you have passed these two examinations you will receive an interim paper document that will make it possible for you to drive.

You can only pass the vision test if you get 20/40 answers with one eye. Also, if a driver uses glasses or contact lenses to meet the standard, the A restriction will be placed on his permit. As far as the knowledge (written) teen driving test is concerned, it has a 50 multi-choice set of questions, which you can only pass by scoring at least 80%.
