Getting Your Intermediate License

After having your learner's permit for at least 6 months and having had no traffic convictions, you qualify to get your driver's license. You will need to make an appointment at the nearest DPS office and take a driving skills exam. You will get your Intermediate License after successful completion of this test. With this license, you do not need an adult that is 21 years or older to accompany you when you drive, so long as it is between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. (There are exceptions to this rule if you are participating in school or community activities.) You may also drive 1 passenger, anyone from your family, or any person over the age of 21.
