How to apply for Level 1 Learner's Permit License in Michigan
Planning on getting your driver's license? The first step is getting your Level 1 Learners Permit or Temporary Instruction Permit. Before you can sign up for drivers ed classes, you must be at least 14 years and 9 months old with a parent or guardian's permission of course. All Star offers several courses to help work around your schedule, such as after-school classes at your school.
Classes range from 2 ½ to 3 weeks. On your first day of class you will need to bring proof of identification and citizenship. Segment 1 contains 24 hours of classroom time with an additional 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training, and 4 hours of in-car observation. Courses consists of; learning to drive in different environments and conditions, hands on activities, and guest speakers attending class to talk about safe driving and of course basic driving skills. Aside from the classroom time, you will need to schedule behind-the-wheel training with your instructor outside of class where you’ll get to drive yourself.
At the end of the course you must pass a written test to evaluate what you learned. Once you have passed the course, you will get a certificate which you can take to your nearest Secretary of State. Before going to the Secretary of State you will also need to bring a Photo ID, a Birth Certificate and an application fee. After getting your Level 1 License, you can’t just go driving around by yourself. You are allowed to drive in a car as long as you are with a licensed adult over the age of 21.
