What Happens If Your Learner's Permit Expires?

A learner's permit is a temporary and restrictive driver's license issued to young, beginning drivers. After a certain period has passed or you reach a specified age, you may apply for a driver's license. However, if a learner's permit expires before you are eligible to apply for a driver's license, it is generally necessary for you to reapply for a permit.

New Application

If your learner's permit expires and you would like to obtain a new one, you must go to your local drivers' licensing office and request a new permit. This may require presenting all of the identification documents that you had to show in order to obtain your original learner's permit. You may also need to bring your parents with you to give permission for you to get a new permit.

Testing

Depending on your state's driving laws and how long your permit has been expired, you may have to retake any written or vision examinations that you took in order to get your original learner's permit.
