Important Information for Junior Drivers with Permits

When you take your road test, you must give the DMV license examiner:

Your photo learner permit. A completed form MV-262 (Certification of Supervised Driving). With this statement your parent or guardian verifies that you have completed at least 50 hours of practice driving with a proper supervising driver (asdefined above), with at least 15 hours at night (after sunset). You do not need proof of practice driving if you are age 17 and present a valid form MV-285 driver education certificate as proof that you passed a state-approved driver education course. An MV-278 pre-licensing course completion certificate. Before you can make a road test appointment, you must first complete an approved pre-licensing safe driving course. If a certified driver education course is completed, and an MV-285 Student Certificate of Completion is issued, the MV-278 is not required. However, the driver education teacher may issue an MV-278 when what would be covered in the 5 hour course has been covered during the driver education course. To complete this requirement, all other drivers must take a special five-hour course available at most professional driving schools. To locate where this course is offered, look in the yellow pages of your local telephone directory under "Driving Instruction."Enter answer here
