This Step: Take Driver Training
Take Driver Training in Arizona
When it comes to driver training, teens have two options. They can either enroll in (and complete) a third-party, MVD-approved driver training program OR practice driving with their parents. Either way, you must abide by the restrictions below every time you get behind the wheel.

A) Get On the Road
Your AZ instruction permit is valid for 12 months. If you hold an operator permit (for those 18 years old and older) you must abide by the same restrictions as a teen driver with an instruction permit. These state requires all permit holders to:
- Be accompanied by a class A, B, C or D licensed driver who is at least 21 years old.
- Have the above-described passenger seated occupying the front seat beside you.
You must clock at least 30 hours of driving time, 10 hours of which must be at night.
B) Get Parent or Guardian Certification of Completion
Once you finish your 30 hours behind the wheel, you must also obtain parent or guardian certification that you completed the required practice hours. If you passed an Arizona MVD-approved drivers ed course, you aren’t required to provide the state with this certification.
