Massachusetts Permit Test FAQs:
How do I get driver’s permit in Massachusetts?
If you have never had a driver’s license before, you must apply for a Massachusetts learner’s permit. This requires that you pass a written exam on safe driving techniques, traffic signs and motor vehicle laws. When you have the learner’s permit, you must then pass a vision screening test and a road skills test, which will allow you to get a Junior Operator’s License in Massachusetts.
If you are under the age of 18, you must hold a learner’s permit for 6 months consecutively, log 40 hours of supervised driving time (this will be reduced to 30 hours if the junior operator completes a driver skills development program) and complete a Registrar approved driver education program, before you can take the road skills test.

I have recently moved to Massachusetts. How do I get the driver’s license?
If you move to Massachusetts and have a license from another state, you must get a Massachusetts driver’s license when you establish residence. You will be asked to turn in your out-of-state license, so be sure to bring it with you when you go to the DMV. You will have to pass the vision screening test; however, you will not have to do the written exam or the road test to exchange your license.
Persons under the age of 16 are not permitted to drive in Massachusetts, even if they have a permit or license issued by another country or U.S. territory that allows persons of less than 16 years to drive.
Although you can get a learner’s permit at 16, you must be at least 16 1/2, have completed a Registrar approved driver education course, and have had your permit in good standing for at least 6 months consecutively, before you can obtain a Class D or Class M driver’s license.
Applicants under the age of 18 must either complete a driver’s education program in Massachusetts or convert the driver’s education certificate from out-of- state.
If your license from another state has been expired for more than 1 year but less than 4, you must take the written exam for the class license you wish to transfer. If it expired more than 4 years ago, you will be required to pass the vision, written and road skills tests.
I am from the overseas. Do I have to apply for the Massachusetts driver’s license?
If you are coming from a country other than one of the U.S. Territories, Canada or Mexico, and you wish to convert your license, you will be required to take the vision, written and road skills tests.
