In the United States, you need to have a driver license to operate a motor vehicle. Much like your passport, this state-issued ID is also used for identification purposes in many different places. This includes banks, liquor stores, courthouses etc. Unlike many countries, in the United States, you must apply for your license in your state of residence. For example, drivers can’t apply for a California license, let’s say, in the state of Texas. Since it is not a nationally issued document, the rules and requirements may vary depending on the state where you apply.

In many states, if you’re new to driving (or if you’re under 18), you are required to first get your learner’s permit. This is a simple process. First, you will need to provide the documents that confirm your residency and identity, pay a fee, take a written test, and pass a vision test. Then, you will be given your permit. After that, you may start learning how to drive by taking a driver’s education course. Once the examiner from your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) confirms your ability to operate a motor vehicle, you can apply for a driver license by filling out and submitting the Driver License Application form.


How do you fill out a driver license application form online?

Before completing and submitting a driver license application form in your state, you will want to schedule an appointment with your local DMV. You also have the option to come without scheduling an appointment, but this normally increases your wait time. The DMV is normally open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You then need to pass the  driver license test. Once you pass the test, you can fill out the driver license application form online.

Search for the application in PDFfiller’s library of over 25 million fillable forms and open it in the Editor. Now you can simply fill in all required fields, place checkmarks where necessary and sign the application. PDFfiller’s Spell Checker will help you avoid typos. The process of completing this application will only take you a few minutes.

Another option is to complete the application at your local DMV, right after you pass the driving test. You can go here, select your state and you’ll see a brief guide on what documents you will need to provide and what form to fill.


What documents do you need to provide along with the driver license application form?

Apart from the driver license application form, you will have to provide the following documents:

  • Social security card
  • Passport
  • Legal presence/birth date (LP/BD) document
  • Employment authorization card
  • Document that confirms your residency


What are the fees?

The fee for getting a driver license varies from state to state. However, it doesn’t exceed $100. With that said, you will have to pay for taking the driving exam.


Where do you send a driver license application?

After you have properly completed the application, send it to the DMV in your state. If you file the application on paper, simply submit the completed form to the appropriate representative at your local DMV.
