Adult Driving Lessons

To legally operate a vehicle in New Jersey, you must obtain a NJ driver’s license.

Whether you are a new resident, a first-time driver, or a non-U.S. citizen, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) requires you to complete several steps before you will be issued your driver’s license.

You must transfer your out-of-state driver’s license within 60 days of moving to New Jersey OR before it expires (whichever occurs first).

NOTE: If you are younger than 21 years old, you may not transfer your out-of-state driver’s license. The NJ MVC will require you to fulfill each requirement of the GDL program. See our page on Applying for New License (Teen Drivers) in New Jersey for more information.
Your New Jersey driver’s license will be valid for 4 years.

Non-U.S. Citizens
If you are NOT a U.S. citizen, you must meet certain criteria to be eligible for a New Jersey driver’s license. The New Jersey MVC will also use the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) system to verify your immigration status. For more information, please feel free to contact Howell Driving School.
