Welcome to the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles Teen Driver website. A fun, exciting, and informative web portal designed just for teens!

Yes, we know you are itching to get that driver license, and we’re here to help and make sure you know all the rules of the road—to keep you, and everyone on the road with you, safe.

Getting your driver license can be one of the most important, and exciting, steps in your teen years. But DC DMV wants to make sure you understand the seriousness of it too…you may be responsible for the lives of others on the road and in your car—and for your own, as well.

Motor vehicle crashes are still the leading cause of death for US teens, and among teen drivers, those most at risk are male teens, teens driving with teen passengers, and any newly licensed teen driver.

From information on the process to obtain your Learner Permit to tips and resources on driving safely, we hope you visit this site often to stay informed and have fun.
