Illinois Instruction Permit

The Process For Obtaining an Illinois Instruction Permit

At 15 years of age, you can start on your way to getting your Illinois driver’s license! The first step is getting your Illinois instruction permit. Here’s what is required to get an instruction permit.

  • You must successfully complete a state-approved driver education course
  • You must complete 50 hours of practice driving (including 10 at night)
  • You must pass the vision screening, written, and driving tests

Once you receive your permit you should know the restrictions associated with it.  You may only drive with an adult 21 or older who has at least one year of driving experience.  You may only drive between 6 AM and 10 PM, or 11 PM on weekends.
