After the Written Test

Once you get a passing score on the written knowledge exam, you are one step closer to getting your NV learners permit. However, before you can apply for the driving permit, you must pass a vision test with a 20/40 visual acuity. If you wear glasses, you will get a Restriction B stamped on the permit.
Then, after you spend the necessary time practicing with your learners permit, you will be able to schedule your appointment for the DMV road skills test and get your official Nevada driver’s license.

Note that to take the road skills test, you need to log 50 hours of driving experience, 10 of which must be at night. Also, a driver older than 21 must be with you in the car while you hold the Nevada instruction permit. If there is no driving course within 30 miles of your home, you must either complete an online course or log 100 hours of supervised driving.
