How to Get a Driver's License Without Driver's Ed

by Contributor

Getting a driver's license is a rite of passage in our society today. New drivers must learn traffic rules and driving techniques to get a license. A driver's education class will teach you everything you need to know. However, it is possible to skip driver's ed and still get your license.

Step 1

Get a driver's handbook. Go to your local Department of Motor Vehicles and pick one up, download the book online or call and ask the DMV to mail a book to you.

Step 2

Read the handbook and memorize as much as you can. The test may include any of the material in the handbook, so read thoroughly and be prepared.

Step 3

Practice driving. Take a licensed driver with you and head for a country road or quiet part of the city. Practice parking, stopping, turning and checking your mirrors. Ask your friend for feedback and suggestions.

Step 4

Complete the written test. Relax and take your time. After you finish, a DMV representative will grade the test immediately so you won't have to wait to find out how you did.

Take the driving test. Concentrate on the road and obey all the rules you've learned. Relax and be confident.
