The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is a state agency that oversees services related to vehicle registration and titles, driver's licenses, state identification cards, ticket violations, address changes, and voter registration.
There are five types of DMV offices throughout the state, and their services and hours vary depending on the location. DMV Hub Offices offer all available services. Limited Services Offices provide registration services and some licensing. Other Services Offices provide basic licensing and some registration services. The state also has Appointment-Only Offices and AAA License Renewal Offices for basic, non-commercial license renewals.
In Connecticut, once you have completed the driver's license requirements, you will receive a temporary card immediately and your permanent card will arrive in the mail. If you are a new driver, regardless of 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 for a valid reason, such as active military duty. All applicants must bring a completed application, show valid proof of identification, and pass a vision test and 25-question knowledge test. Drivers ages 16 to 17 must also bring a completed Certificate of Parental Consent Form.
Drive Only licenses are available for undocumented individuals with valid identification and proof of residence. License renewals, transfers, and replacements are also handled through the DMV offices. Some offices do not offer services for motorcycle or CDL licensing, so check with your local office when you schedule your appointment.
