How to get a driver’s license in North Carolina if you’re over 18
Most people go through the process of getting a license when they are sixteen. Sometimes, classes to help prepare you for taking the written test and then offer the road test through the school. If driver’s ed isn’t offered, there are plenty of driving schools that have professionals who can train you. While many get their license as soon as possible, some people don’t get their license until they are an adult. There are plenty of reasons that a person would wait to get a license. They may have no need for one due to public transportation, or their proximity to wherever they need to go. Should that situation change, and they need to get a license, it is easy to do so in North Carolina. If you are over 18, you will not need to apply for a learner’s permit, but you will need one if you want to practice before the road test. You’ll be able to take the written safety test and the road test on the same day, along with a vision test, and if you pass, you’ll receive a temporary driving permit that you can use until your license is mailed to you.
Should you get a learner’s permit?
