Teen Learner’s Permit Information
Before getting behind the wheel with Airway or parents at home, teenagers must obtain a Connecticut Learner’s Permit. The permit is obtained by making an appointment and testing at a DMV branch office. To find out how to make an appointment, click here. The test consists of 25 multiple choice questions. Teens must get 20 questions correct (80%) in order to pass the test.
Testing Fee: $40
Processing Fee: $19
The learner’s permit must be held for a minimum of 120 days (if the student chooses to take a full driving course) or 180 days (if the student chooses to take the 8-hour Drug and Alcohol Course). Testing eligibility is on the 121st or 181st day.
The DMV offers a variety of resources for teenagers to use to study for the permit test, including the DMV manual and the DMV app for iPhone and Android devices.
