DRIVE ONLY LICENSE
The Connecticut DMV has started a Drive Only program for those who would not otherwise be eligible for a license. Applicants must be 16 or older and cannot establish their legal presence in the United States or may not have a Social Security number. The process involves applying for a learner's permit that can then lead to a Drive-Only license. Learner's permits are now required of all new license applicants regardless of age. The Drive Only license program is authorized under Public Act 2013-89.
In accordance with state law, the purpose of the Drive Only license program is to improve public safety and to try to ensure that all drivers are tested, know how to drive and understand the rules and laws for driving. A Drive Only license is not valid for federal identification purposes, and cannot be used to vote. DO license holders have reported that they were able to use this license out of state, to fly within the United States and as proof of identification. Because of its recent approval, it has not become clear the extent of the use of such document. (source: ct.gov/dmv)
The Drive Only license is by appointment only. No walk-in service is provided. Epic may help you schedule your test. Please call (203) 826-9152 or (203) 212-3000 or complete the form below to register.
It is taking DMV several months to schedule an appointment. We recommend registering as early as possible to save your spot. From time to time, DMV opens new slots or other students cancel their appointments. You can always try to reschedule by using your pin.
Prepare, prepare, prepare!!!
Due to DMV delays in scheduling or rescheduling your test, every effort to pass the knowledge test at first is recommended. If you do not pass the vision test, the knowledge test, or do not have the necessary documents; your appointment will have to be rescheduled at the end of the line
Check your Documents
We attached here a list of required documents; however, we have found that several students have been turned back even when they believe they comply with the list. We always recommend students to bring their documents to our office for a free review prior to going to the DMV.
Keep in mind that Epic does not guarantee in any way that documents will or will not be accepted by the DMV. It is the DMV officers’ prerogative to make the decision; we simply follow the guidelines set forth by the commissioner of motor vehicles when reviewing the documents.
