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

by Editorial Team

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.

Step 5

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