AZ Teens begin taking driver permit tests at home

Posted: Updated:

Arizona teenagers no longer have to visit an area Motor Vehicle Division location in order to obtain a driver instruction permit, according to an Arizona Department of Transportation media release.

Instead, the written drivers’ portion of the permit test can be taken at home beginning Monday, March 5, 2018.

The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is introducing the Permit Test @ Home, the release stated. It is available to parents by setting up a free, AZ MVD Now account, which is accessed through ServiceArizona.com.

“Online testing is commonplace for things such as college courses and professional certifications, so having the Permit Test @ Home is a modern and convenient way for MVD to serve our customers,” said MVD Stakeholder Relations Manager Jennifer Bowser-Richards.

Potential drivers will still be required to pass a road skills test prior to receiving a driver license, according to the release. All permit holders must drive with a licensed driver in the front seat.

“Learning to drive is a rite of passage for many teens and the Permit Test @ Home makes the process a bit easier,” Bowser-Richards added. “Rather than requiring teens and their parents to come to an MVD office to pick up the manual and then return for the knowledge test, MVD is making everything available digitally.”

Online practice tests continue to be available at www.azdot.gov/practice, according to the release.
