DMV Institutes New Adult Learner’s Permit

The Department of Motor Vehicles say Connecticut is seeing more first-time drivers age 18 and older —  about  30-thousand people a year —  and starting next month,  those older new drivers are going to face some new requirements.

New adult drivers will have to be tested on Connecticut rules of the road and have a vision test before getting a learner’s permit —  then they’ll have to hold the learner’s permit for three months before they can take the road test.  During the time the learner’s permit is in effect,  the new driver must be accompanied by an instructor or a driver older than twenty who has had a valid license for four or more years.

Adult drivers who have a valid license in another state will not have to get an adult learner’s permit.
