State test

Sometime between the ages of 15 and15 ½ students need to take a test and receive their learners permit.  This is to be accomplished at the Driver License Division (DLD) in Richfield.  Students will need to have their permit for six months and drive 40 hours with an adult before they can obtain their license.  Students will also need to complete the thirty hour classroom portion before they accomplish the behind the wheel portion.  When all requirements are finished students can go to the Driver License Division and take the final driving test to obtain their drivers license.

You can take this online Practice Test to see if you’re ready to take the actual test.



The Richfield High $100.00 fee pays for the classroom course and the behind the wheel course.  The State fee for the learners permit is $15.00 and the actual drivers license is $30.00.
