How to get your learner's permit in Massachusetts


Your learner's permit in Massachusetts is a very important step to in becoming a licensed driver. You will have to be at least 16 years old to be eligible to apply for a learner's permit in Massachusetts along with a few other rules and regulations. Make sure you have never been issued a license before, and if you have been issued a driver's license in another state outside of Massachusetts you will have to be a new resident of Massachusetts and the other driver's license must have been expired for over a year.

How to get your learner's permit in Massachusetts:

  • If you are younger than 18, you will have to bring your parent or legal guardian with you to sign your application form.
  • Get a copy of the Massachusetts driver's manual to be prepared for your required written exam.

Be prepared to bring the following with you:

  • Proper ID.
  • You will be required to provide proof of residency if you are 18 years of age or older and signature verification is required.
  • Your Social Security card.
  • Cash, Check, or Credit card to pay for your learner's permit.
  • You need to have your photo and signature captured electronically.
  • You will have to pass a written exam.
  • You will have to pass a vision exam.

After passing both exams, you will then be issued a Massachusetts learner's permit.

Remember, when driving with your learner's permit in Massachusetts you must have someone who is older than 21 and licensed sitting next to you at all times.
