Arizona Online Drivers Ed Information

The Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) is in charge of issuing driver's permits to all first-time drivers.


As part of the graduated driver licensing (GDL) program, teenagers are required to first apply for a learner's permit and complete a driver's education course before obtaining a driver's license. There are 3 stages of the GDL program:

  • Instruction permit/learner's permit
  • Graduated restricted driver's license/provisional license
  • Full, unrestricted driver's license


Apply for an Arizona Learner's Permit


The first step of the graduated driver licensing process is to apply for your Arizona learner's permit. You must be at least 15 years and 6 months old to apply.


You must hold your Arizona learner's permit for 6 months before you can move on to your provisional driver's license.


Taking the Arizona Permit Test


NOTE: If you have an out-of-state driver's license, the AZ MVD does not require a written test in most cases. However, your Arizona MVD representative will decide.

  • The written permit test in Arizona contains 30 questions (all multiple choice) at your local MVD office
  • Use this course to help you ace the permit test!
  • You have 3 attempts to pass the written permit test within 12 months of applying for your Arizona learner's permit. If you fail 3 attempts at your exam, you will need to pay your application fees again.

Permit Driving Restrictions in Arizona
