Getting a License

What do I need to bring to the DMV in order to take my driving test?
  • NH Driver Education Certificate issued by a licensed NH Driving School if you're under 18.
  • The 40-hour home practice log.
  • Parental/Guardian permission form
  • Bring glasses if you wear them.
  • All driver's licenses issued to you by another state.
  • Two forms of identification: official papers which show your name, address, and date of birth (in most cases, a photo license from another state and a birth certificate or passport is acceptable).
  • A vehicle legally registered and inspected in New Hampshire and in good running condition. The vehicle must be of the proper class for the license you are being tested for.
  • A licensed driver to drive the test vehicle for you to and from the testing site. That person should remain at the test site until the road test has been completed. (If another state appropriately licenses you, you may drive yourself to the testing site.)
