Gaining a Driver’s License in RI

Automobile License

If you wish to operate a motor vehicle Rhode Island, you must earn a driver’s license. It is mandatory for you to join in the three-level driver training system.

First, you’ll be asked to obtain an instruction permit. Be sure to:

  • be 16 to 18 years old;
  • bring in your identification document and social security number;
  • undergo 33 hours of the training course certified by the Community College of Rhode Island;
  • undergo an RI written permit test;
  • provide your parent’s or guardian’s approval of your application.

Instruction permit stays active for 1 year or until the moment you reach 18, whichever event comes first.

Second, you must qualify for a provisional license. To succeed, make sure to hold your instruction permit for half a year and do not have any moving violations during this period. You will need to pass a driving road test. In addition, you will have to submit a driving log confirming that you have practiced fifty hours of driving, ten of which occurred at night.

Finally, you will have to earn a full driver’s license. To qualify, you must be at least 17 to 18 years old. You must hold a provisional license for a year prior to applying and not have any record of traffic rule violations. The licensing fee is $38.50.

If you’re 18 and never held a learner’s permit or license before, you will be requested to obtain an instruction permit for 18 and older.

Motorcycle License

To navigate a motorcycle, you have to gain a separate license. The primary condition before applying for it is to enroll in a motorcycle safety training from the Community College of Rhode Island.

You will have to present your existing driver’s license and a safety certificate when applying. The licensing fee is $26.50. You will then be issued a motorcycle permit which is active for eighteen months. However, you can wait a minimum thirty days and then qualify for a motorcycle license by submitting your motorcycle permit and current driver’s license.

If you presently hold a motorcycle license from the other state, submit it to the RI DMV and they will automatically transfer it.

Commercial Driver’s License

To lawfully navigate a commercial vehicle in RI, you will need a valid commercial driver’s license.

To qualify for a commercial learner’s permit, you are obliged to meet these requirements:

  • be 21 years old;
  • bring in identification documents including proofs of US citizenship, state residency, and social security number;
  • undergo a medical check-up;
  • submit your existing driver’s license;
  • complete written and driving tests.

To further qualify for a commercial driver’s license, you need to have an operator’s license for two years and have no records of moving violations.

Practice Driver Knowledge Test and Learn 10 Tips about Driving on Snowy and Icy Road

Did you find any useful practical tips about driving in adverse weather conditions in the Driver’s Manual you read before your driver knowledge test? Yes, there is something about safety when driving on a slippery road or during heavy rain and snow, but basically, the manuals give general recommendations about adjusting to specific driving conditions. So, it is hardly possible that you gain deep knowledge of driving on an icy road, while you practice the driver knowledge test.
