Thinking about getting your driver's license at the Arizona DMV? Here's exactly what you need to know to get your permit, pass your road test, and get your Arizona driver license.

Here's How to Get Your Arizona Driver's License

Here's what you'll need to get your Arizona license:

  • Completed Driver License/Identification Card Application (Form 40-5122)
  • Proof of identity, age, and legal presence in Arizona
  • Minimum of 2 documents from this full list of accepted documents (must be provided as originals or certified copies)
  • Proof of Social Security number
  • Out-of-state driver’s license (if applicable)
  • Payment for Class D driver’s license fee, based on your age:
  • Drivers' license fee, which varies by age.  For drvers 16 to 39 years old it is $25;  for drivers 40 to 44 years old it is $20; for drivers 45 to 49 years old it is $15; for drivers 50 years old and older it is $10. You will also need a $7 payment for Learner’s Permit fee (if applicable).

Here's what you'll need to do to get your Arizona license:

  1. Read the Arizona Driver Manual and take written practice tests online
  2. Apply for your Learner’s Permit: submit the required documents and ID at the DMV; consider making a DMV appointment or getting a line waiting concierge
  3. At the DMV, submit the application for a driver's license, pass the written test, pass the vision test, and receive your Learner’s Permit
  4. Once you're ready, schedule your road test on the DMV website or you can schedule on Skip. If you need a car or driver for your road test, you can schedule a road test concierge here.
  5. Before your road test, visit the ultimate Arizona DMV road test guide to find out more information about the Arizona driving test.
  6. Once you pass your road test you'll receive a temporary driver's license. Then, you'll receive your new Class D driver’s license via U.S. mail.

Here are Arizona driver's license exceptions to note:

  • Do you hold a current out-of-state license?  Then the MVD will likely waive the written and road tests, but you'll still need to show up and apply for an Arizona license.
  • Under age 18?  Then a parent or guardian will need to sign your application with MVD as witness, or have the application signature notarized.
