Indiana Driver Operator License

An operator license gives a holder 18 years of age or older full driving privileges to operate most standard vehicles on Indiana roads. Operator licenses for persons under 18 years of age are probationary.

Indiana Driver Examination

a. Vision Screening Test - all applicants for a license or permit are required to satisfy the minimum vision standards established by the Bureau.

b. A written examination - Written examinations are based on information contained in the BMV Driver's manual. Passage of the written examination demonstrates basic understanding of Indiana traffic laws and safe driving techniques.
Written examinations include multiple choice questions concerning traffic maneuvers, and knowledge of types of traffic signs.

If you fail to pass a written test, you must wait until the next business day to take the test again. An applicant can not take the road test until he or she successfully passes the written test.

All applicants must have the ability to read and understand highway signs regulating, warning and directing traffic, as well as knowledge of Indiana traffic laws.

c. Roadway Skills Test - After you pass your vision screening and your written test (if applicable), the examiner
will test your ability to drive by riding with you and observing how well you control the vehicle and observe the Indiana rules of the road. There is no charge for the drive test administered by the BMV driver examiner.
