Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)

The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is a state agency that handles the registration and titling of motor vehicles, as well as driver licensing.

The DMV was created in 1935 to handle the growing number of cars on Connecticut’s roads. The agency has since grown to include other services such as vehicle registration, driver licensing, and commercial vehicle inspection.

The DMV has five types of offices in the state giving varying levels of service and location hours. DMV Hubs offer all available services. There are different types of service offices in the state. Some offer basic licensing & registration services and others offer just registration services. Additionally, you can opt to visit a AAA licensing office for renewal as well as for general assistance.

After completing CT driver license requirements, you’ll receive your temporary card immediately and your permanent one will arrive in the mail. If you are a new driver, regardless of your age, you must obtain a learner’s permit before applying for a driver’s license. Adult drivers must hold the learner’s permit for at least 90 days before scheduling a road test unless they are exempt from it due to a valid reason. All applicants need to bring a completed application, as well as valid identification and pass both a vision test and 25-question knowledge test. Drivers aged 16-17 also need to bring a completed certificate of parental consent form.

If you’re not a citizen, you might want to apply for a Drive Only license. It requires proof of residence and ID. You can renew or replace your license at any time through the appropriate DMV location. Some offices may not have license services for motorcycles, so it’s a good idea to check with your local branch office. This also applies to CDL licensing.
