How to Qualify for a Driver’s License in NC

Automobile License

All drivers planning to drive in North Carolina are obliged to hold a driver’s license. Drivers younger than 18 are requested to qualify for a limited learner permit first. To do this, they must undergo the training course under Graduated License Program.

You will be required to meet the below requirements to qualify for a learner’s permit:

  • be a minimum of 15 years old;
  • submit your identity documents and a social security card;
  • find a supervisor to help you practice driving. This could be one of your parents, a guardian or any adult approved by parents or guardians;
  • pay a $20 fee.

North Carolina offers the following types of driver’s licenses and permits:

  • a limited learner permit. To qualify, you must be 15, pass NC written permit test, a vision screening, and a traffic signs test. You will need to present a driving log as well;
  • a limited provisional license. Prior to qualifying for it, you need to be 16 and hold a limited learner permit for at least a year. You will be requested to undergo a driving road test and present a driving log updated to meet the provisional license requirements;
  • a full provisional license. To get an unrestricted license, you need to possess a limited provisional license for half a year and carry no record of mobile device usage while driving during the six months prior to application for a full provisional license.

Motorcycle License

To lawfully operate a motorcycle in North Carolina, you have to have a motorcycle learner permit or a motorcycle endorsement on your regular driver’s license.

You can qualify for a motorcycle endorsement if you currently hold a regular, a full provisional license or a CDL. In turn, to qualify for a learner permit, you’ll be required to hold a full or a regular license.

To qualify for a motorcycle endorsement or learner permit, be sure to:

  • complete the tests; vision screening, traffic signs, driver knowledge and driving tests for an endorsement, and vision screening, traffic signs and a driver knowledge test for a learner permit;
  • pay the fees – $20 for a learner permit and $2.30 per year for an endorsement.

Commercial Driver’s License

NC DMV official website lists three types of CDLs issued by this state: commercial Class A, B, and C. The first step towards obtaining your commercial driver’s license is qualifying for a commercial learner permit.

The commercial learner permit is subject to a few rules:

  • it is valid for one hundred and eighty days;
  • there is a limit of two permits that can be acquired within a year;
  • it needs to be held for fourteen days before the driver could take a driving test.

To obtain your CDL, you will have to:

  • reach the age of 18;
  • already possess a Class A, B, or C license;
  • bring in required documents: proofs of identity, age, social security, U.S. residency, and liability insurance;
  • give proof that your driving record does not list any violations;
  • present a confirmation that you are not currently holding more than a single driver’s license;
  • undergo written and driving tests. provides a huge selection of the driver’s license information and test questions to help you get yourself ready to passing your driving exams. You may download our mobile app from Google Play  or App Store  and study on the go.
