This Step: Get a Learner Permit
Get a Learner Permit in Alaska
A) Ace a Few DMV Practice Tests
Take multiple online practice permit tests before you head to an Alaska DMV office to take your written test. Sample test questions cover topics you’ll find on the actual learner’s permit exam.
B) Gather Required Documents and Permit Fees
Once you turn 14 you can apply for an Alaska learner’s or instruction permit. Bring the following with you to the AK DMV:
- A completed Parental Consent Form (if you are younger than 18)
- Proof of legal name, date of birth, principal residence address and Social Security number (card or letter from the SSA)
- A completed Alaska Permit Application (Form 478)
- Proper fees
If you live in rural Alaska, take advantage of the additional services offered to those living in more remote parts of the state.
C) Take the AK Learner’s Permit Exam
With your required documents and fees in hand, head to an Alaska DMV office to take the written knowledge test. Look online for the nearest driver’s license branch.
In addition to taking the DMV permit test, you must also take a vision test.
