Minor From Out-of-State

Requirements for obtaining a first-time original Utah driver license if you have recently become a resident of the state of Utah:

  • You will need to visit one of our Driver License offices.
  • You will take a photo upon arrival.
  • You will be required to pass the eye test.
  • Submit a nonrefundable fee of $39.00.
  • Bring proof of identity (name and date of birth.)  
  • Bring social security card. 
  • Bring two (2) documents of Utah residence address. 
  • Bring your valid driver license from another state (which you will surrender upon application.)
  • You will be required to pass a 25-question written knowledge test that is open-book.
  • If 17 and under parent/legal guardian must sign for financial responsibility. At any time, the parent or legal guardian who signed for financial responsibility on the minor’s application can withdraw their signature until the minor is 18 years of age and for any reason.  This action would invalidate the driver license, and the minor could reapply when they reach the age of 18 or if the parent/legal guardian signed a new application.  There would be a licensing fee and a written knowledge test to reapply.
  • Understand the requirements/restrictions that are in place for the minor driver at certain ages.

Note: If the name from your driver license or identity card is different than the name on your identity document (e.g., birth certificate, passport), it must be accompanied by legal documentation authorizing the name change.  These include a certified state marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption, citizenship, guardianship, or court documents indicating the name change.

Note: By law, you may not possess more than one REAL ID compliant certificate at a time (e.g., a Utah driver license and a Colorado ID.)

After all requirements for a driver license have been completed, you will receive a temporary license with a photo on the same day.  The completed driver license with a 5-year expiration will be mailed to you in approximately 4-6 weeks.
