Getting A Drivers Permit
We highly recommend students take the time to prepare for the test and download the AZ Motor Vehicle Driver License manual. If your student needs additional practice, the AZ Motor Vehicle Department also provides practice tests.
Students between the ages of 15 1/2 and 18 can take the written test at home. A parent (or guardian) must register the student first. Once registered, the parent will receive login information. When the student is ready to take the test the parent is required to proctor the test to insure that the student knows the information.
Click on the following link for more information about Permit Test @Home.
DrivingMBA can also proctor the test for a student, however, a parent must still register their child and provide the necessary login information.
Safe Cars for Teens
Below are several links for information on safe vehicles for a newly licensed teenager. DrivingMBA does not recommend large, powerful vehicles for young drivers. Our recommendation is a sedan with good safety features and a small engine. Too much power in the hands of a teenager is not a good idea.
