Hello, I'm 19 years old and do not have a driver's license and never got a learners permit. Long story short I'm lazy but can drive just fine (I hate going to the DMV for anything). I was just wanting to know what the process is for attaining a license at my age. Also, I heard that driving schools offer a insurance discount. Would it be worth going to one of these schools and passing if I already know how to drive fairly well? Better yet, can individuals who are 19 even go to them?

Hope you guys can help me out here, as I want to get my license asap before I start college in 4 months.

You need to take the online course, then take the written test for the permit, which you can do online or in person. Then you take the paperwork for the passed written test, completed safety course, and your ID (see the list of required documents) to DMV to get your actual permit. After you feel you are ready to pass the road test, you make and appointment. You need to ahve a safe to operate, registered, insured vehicle to take the road test on, and must be accompanied by an adult with a valid license. They check, I just took someone. If you pass the road test, you get a license.

My sugestion would be to find a driving school or take a driver's ed course (Perhaps Valencia CC offers them). Usually they will provide you with the car to take the driver's test, and you will get expert instructions on how to drive safely. This is the route I took and I have not had an accident in 20 + years of driving ( knock on wood). And, like you said, you could possibly get a discount on your insurance (b cuz @ your age, they gonna charge you out the wazoo!)

Also you sound like 19 is ancient or something! Trust me you may be one of the youngest people there (driving school)

True, my son didn't get his license until he was 23. He took private driving lessons through Florida Safety Council, they were quite reasonably priced.

So I’m 19 I’ve had my drivers permit longer than 3 months so do I still need to keep it for another 3 months? I have all my hours done can I just go take both of my tests without doing the drivers ed course?

My partner grew up in Hong Kong and San Francisco, both cities most young people don’t druve, so when we moved here she was already in her early 20s before she learned how to drive and got a license.
