Welcome to 2024. With the new year brings another round of birthdays. For some, that means the magical driving age. Talk about Sweet 16, or 15 and a half for a permit.

If you're the parent of a teen, you might be wondering about how to handle the vaunted learner’s permit test. 

The rite of passage that is taking the learner’s permit test is one of those mandatory exercises parents either look forward to, or dread with every fiber of their being. But if you have not noticed, the MVD has changed since you took your test in our office. It can actually be done at home!

Since 2018, the Permit Test @ Home has been available for potential teen drivers to take the learner’s permit test – for real – online.

In fact, more teens take the test online than at an MVD office.

The Permit Test @ Home is one of many innovative ways to provide easy access to MVD services securely online. A parent or guardian signs up for a free AZ MVD Now account and the rest is simple and free. It can be taken any time, and it encourages both parents and teens to review the rules of the road more completely. That’s a big win for safety. 

Practice tests are also available online. The ADOT website has links to all the resources for new drivers including the Arizona Driver Manual and all three practice tests

The choice is obvious: taking time during your busy day and going to an office to take a test or taking it at home at a time that is convenient in your schedule? Hmmmm …
