Teen drivers are handed their 180-day temporary driver's license after they complete their 9 month holding period for a learner's permit and have completed Virginia's driver education program.

We cannot issue a license to adult drivers. Adult drivers will receive an Adult Waiver certificate that when submitted to DMV will result in a driver's license being issued.
