Hitting the road in Pennsylvania? This guide will connect you with DMV services to legally operate a non-commercial vehicle in our commonwealth.

Driver's License

New Drivers

Broadly, becoming a licensed Pennsylvania driver requires three steps: passing a knowledge test based on the PA Driver’s Manual, training with a Learner’s Permit, and completing a road test. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation also requires new drivers complete documentation and pay a fee for their permit and license.

New Residents

All new residents with out-of-state non-commercial driver’s licenses must obtain a PA Driver’s License within 60 days of establishing Pennsylvania residency.

To apply, you must appear in person at one of our Driver License Centers.
