    What are the requirements to get a Permit?

    Step One for getting a permit is to enroll in a Drivers Ed. Program at a DMV certified school.

    If you are between the ages of 15 ½ & 17 ½ DMV has dictated that anyone applying for a Learner's Permit must complete Driver’s Ed at a DMV certified school (ALOHA is a DMV certified school License #4146).  

    DMV will also need to see your original birth certificate & social security card. 

    You must provide proof of residency by bringing two "official" pieces of mail with your parent(s)/guardian(s) name and address on it (PG&E and a Water Bill would work).  The address on the mail must correspond with the address you are having put on your permit.

    You will need to fill out a DMV application (DL-44, this document is NOT downloadable) for a permit and it must be signed by a parent or legal guardian if you are under 18; you will also have to pay a fee to the DMV to get your permit.

    You DO have to have an appointment at DMV to take the written Permit test. Go to www.dmv.ca.gov to make a "Filed Office Visit Appointment", then you will be checking the "Applying for an original Driver License" box.

    You cannot miss more than 8 to pass the test. If you fail the permit test you will have to wait one (1) week before re-testing.

    Once you pass the permit test call  ALOHA to book your first Behind-the-Wheel lesson or click here to enroll: <insert link>

    DMV is very specific in what they will and will not accept. At ALOHA we pride ourselves on having you prepared when you arrive at the DMV.  If you have not heard about The ALOHA "Sacred Golden Envelope", you will if you come see us before going to the DMV, it will save you lots of time & stress! 

    Nearly all of the students who come to ALOHA for Classroom Driver’s Ed. are also enrolled in Behind-the-Wheel. This allows students to receive the required certificate and application upon completion classroom Driver’s Education.
