Q: How Do I Get a Georgia Class C Driver’s License?
To obtain a Georgia class C driver’s license, you will need to do the following—provide proof of identity and residency, pay all associated fees, pass a vision, knowledge, and road test, and prove that you are physically capable of operating a motor vehicle (via a doctor’s recommendation).
Q: How Old Do I Have to Be to Obtain a Georgia Class C Driver’s License?
A full-fledged Class C driver’s license is only issued to Georgia residents age 18 or older.
However, Georgia operates on a graduated licensing system, which means that you can apply for a Class C learner’s permit at age 15 and a class D provisional license at age 16.
Q: What Are the Acceptable Documents for Establishing Identity and Residency?
In Georgia, identifying documents are arranged into three categories—documents establishing your identity, documents establishing your social security number, and documents establishing your Georgia residency.
If you are a U.S. citizen you will need to provide one document establishing identity, one document confirming your social security number, and two documents establishing your Georgia residency.
Proof of identity documents include a government issued birth certificate, a U.S. passport that is valid, a report that shows birth out of country, a citizenship certificate or naturalization, military discharge papers, or a social security administration statement containing your full name and date of birth.
Proof of social security documents include your social security card (original or copy), a W-2 or 1099 form, a paycheck stub, a tax return (state or federal), a Medicare or Medicaid card, a selective service card, or military discharge papers.
Proof of residency documents include a leasing agreement, a mortgage bill, your homeowner’s insurance policy, a utility bill (no more than six months old), a credit card bill, a bank statement, school records, or medical statements.
Q: What Tests are Required to Obtain a Georgia Class C Driver’s License?
To be qualified for a Georgia Class C license you must pass a vision test, a knowledge (written) test, and a road (driving) test.
The knowledge test will test your ability to identify road signs and understand Georgia traffic laws.
During your road test you will be asked to perform maneuvers such as parallel parking, backing up, making a three point turn, passing other vehicles, and obeying traffic signs.
Q: What Driver’s Education Do I Have to take for a Georgia Class C Driver’s License?
There are no driver’s education requirements for the Class C license, per se; however, most Georgia residents will obtain a Class C license through the graduated licensing system, and there are driver’s education requirements for the Class D provisional license—which immediately precedes the Class C license.
Requirements include enrolling in a Department of Driver Services approved course either in a classroom or virtual setting for at least 30 hours. You will also need at least 6 hours of on-the-road driving experience with a certified driving instructor.
Q: What are the Driving Restrictions for a Class C Instructional Permit and a Class D Provisional License?
When you have obtained a class C instructional permit, you must only drive when a licensed driver age 21 or older is present.
Holders of a class D provisional license will be able to drive unaccompanied; however, they will not be allowed to drive between the hours of 12 a.m. and 6 a.m.
During the first six months of possessing a class D provisional license, only immediate family members will be allowed to ride with the driver.
Q: How Many Questions are on the Georgia Driver’s Test?
There are a total of 40 questions on the knowledge portion of the Georgia driver’s test. 20 of these questions will have to do with the identification of traffic signs, and the other 20 will test your knowledge of Georgia traffic laws.
During the road portion of the driving test, you will be asked to successfully execute twelve different maneuvers in your vehicle.
Q: What is the Passing Grade for the Georgia Driver’s Test?
For the knowledge test you will need to get at least 30 out of the 40 questions correct. However, keep in mind that it cannot just be any 30 questions—you need at least 15 correct answers in both sections of the exam.
For the road test, you will need at least a score of 75% to pass.
Q: What happens if I Fail the Georgia Driver’s Test?
After your first failed attempt you must wait at least until the next day to retake the portion of the driver’s test that you have failed.
After each subsequent failed attempt you will need to wait at least 7 days before attempting any portion of the driver’s test again.
Q: How Should I Study for the Georgia Driver’s Test?

This guide is published by the Georgia Department of Driver Services and is available for free to download online.
Q: How Much Does It Cost to Take the Georgia Driver’s Test?
The fee to take the Georgia driver’s test is $10. If you fail your first attempt, each subsequent attempt will cost another $10 as well.
Q: What are the Requirements to Receive a Class C Instructional Permit?
Requirements for the Class C instructional permit are similar to the requirements for the Class C driver’s license.
You must pass a vision and knowledge test, you must pay all applicable fees, you must provide proof of residency and identity, and you must have consent from your parent or guardian (if you’re under 18 years of age).
Q: Where do I take the Georgia Driver’s Test? Do I Need an Appointment?
You can take both the knowledge and road tests at any Department of Driver Services customer service center. You do not need an appointment to take the knowledge test; however, you must begin taking the exam at least 30 minutes before the center closes.
You will need to schedule an appointment for your road test, and this can be done by phone or in person.
