What To Bring When You Take Your License Test

Graduated Driver Licensing: From the VT DMV


Vermont officials are well aware that even though teenagers only comprise 7% of all drivers, they account for 14% of all car fatalities. They also know that car accidents are the leading cause of death for young adults between the ages of 15 and 19. To help curb these numbers, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) employs a stringent graduated driver licensing process for teenage drivers.
