Montana Road Test Requirements

The road test will last approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Your ability to drive your vehicle safely in a variety of traffic situations will be tested. A Montana DPS driver license examiner will administer the road test and you will need to supply your own vehicle. Before taking you out on the road the examiner will check to see if the car you are driving has a current registration and proof of vehicle insurance.

Montana GDL Laws

Montana's graduated driver license law is a three-step program that reduces the risk while new drivers under age 18 gradually work up to driving on their own.

Stage 1: Learner's Permit

A new driver must be at least 14 years and 6 months old to apply for a learner's license. The required holding period for a learner’s permit is 12 months. The licensee must complete 50 hours of driving time, 10 of which should be done at night.

Stage 2: Restricted License

The licensee must be at least 15 years old to qualify for a restricted license. The nighttime restriction for an intermediate driver's license is not being allowed to drive between the hours of 11 PM to 5 AM. For the first 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to have more than one passenger under the age of 18 years and 6 months. For the second 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to have more than 3 passengers under the age of 18.

Stage 3: Full Privilege Driver's License

The licensee must be at least 15 years old to qualify for a restricted license. The nighttime restriction for an intermediate driver's license is not being allowed to drive between the hours of 11 PM to 5 AM. For the first 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to have more than one passenger under the age of 18 years and 6 months. For the second 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to have more than 3 passengers under the age of 18.

Teenagers may obtain a Traffic Education Learner's License (TELL) as early as age 14½ years old only if they are in a state-approved traffic education program. A driver with a Learner's License must be supervised by a licensed parent or guardian, or a licensed driver age 18 years or older who is authorized by the parent or guardian.
