NM MVD driver's license
New Mexico MVD Driver's License
You must correctly answer 18 of 25 multiple-choice questions on the New Mexico written driver’s knowledge test, which is based on the 2018 New Mexico Driver’s Manual. You may apply for your learner’s permit once you are 15, but you’ll need to enroll in a driver education course in you’re under 18 or a “None for the Road” DWI class for those between 18 and 24. In addition to the driver education classes, you’ll need to pass an eye exam, provide proof of identity and social security number, two proofs of residency, parental consent for minors, and $10 fee, in order to receive an instructional permit. For those under 18, you’ll be required to participate in the graduated licensing program, and will have to hold an instructional permit for six months before you may take a road test and apply for a provisional license, which will require an additional $18 fee and must be held for 12 months before graduating to a full license, which requires a final $18-34 fee. This MVD practice test will help you study for your written test, as it contains very similar questions to the official written test.
