Upon passing your written/vision test, you will bring your test card and documentation back to the Driver's License Dept. where you will be issued a Driving Permit.  The cost is $12. 


If you do not pass, it's okay, KSP will retain your test card and you can come back and retake the test any day of the week during the hours that it is given.  There is no limit to the amount of times you can retake the written/eye exam. 


You will NOT be required to check in at the Driver's License Department upon returning to retest.  Since KSP retained your test card the last time you were here, you may go straight to KSP and take your test.

A permit must be held for 180 days.  At the end of this 6 month period, you will be eligible for a road test.

Passing your road test qualifies you for a full, unrestricted license.
