A learner’s permit is a necessary step on the road to becoming a licensed driver. This junior operator’s license enables young drivers to learn to drive firsthand behind the wheel of a car, provided they are accompanied by a licensed adult. In general, a learner’s permit expires two years after it is first acquired. Young drivers who don’t feel confident enough to acquire their full license after two years or who simply let their junior permit expire will need to renew it. The procedure for renewing a learner’s permit may vary slightly by state.
Check the expiration date on your learner’s permit. The expiration period varies from state to state, so you’re better off if you know exactly when it will expire ahead of time. In general, the renewal process will be much easier if you begin before your permit has expired.
