License, Insurance, and Registration Please

How to Get Your License: Lesson 2

License and Registration Paperwork For Drivers

  • When you drive, you must become licensed.
    • Your driver’s license proves to law enforcement that you have met all the physical requirements and skills tests to be qualified as a driver.
  • Your car needs a license, too.
    • Your car’s license is known as its registration.
    • The registration proves who owns the car, and that the tax to drive the car has been paid.
  • The license plate is mailed to you once the registration is complete and you’ve paid the fee.
  • You must pay the registration fee once a year. You will get a letter when it is due.
  • You cannot register a car without car insurance. More about insurance comes later.
