GA Practice Driving

Until you get your drivers license you must practice behind the wheel with a supervised driver. This person must:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Hold a valid Class C drivers license
  • Sit next to you any time you are driving
  • Be capable of exercising control of your vehicle if necessary

A) Get On the Road

Teen drivers must clock the following practice hours before applying for a Georgia drivers license:

  • Teens younger than 18 years old―forty (40) hour of supervised driving practice, six (6) hours must be done at night
  • Teens older than 17 years old―No need to show proof of drivers ed completion, but you still must clock the above-stated practice hours

B) Complete Driver Training

When you apply for a Class D driver’s license (for drivers between 16 years old and 18 years old), you will need a parent, guardian, or duly authorized DDS-certified driver education instructor to confirm you completed all forty (40) hour.
