Michigan's Graduated Licensing System: How It Works
In order to qualify for Segment 1 training, you must be 14 years and 8 months old.
Segment 1 consists of 24 hours of classroom instruction reviewing driver safety and rules of the road, along with 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction and 4 hours of driving observation time. At the end of the Segment 1 course, you must pass a 100-question multiple-choice test to receive a completion certificate.
You must take that completion certificate to the Secretary of State to get a Level 1 Learner's License. To apply for a Level 1 Learner's License, you must be at least 14 years and nine months old. Bring your Segment 1 certificate, proof of identity, and a parent or guardian along to sign for you. You'll also have to pass a vision and basic health screening test. There is currently no fee for a Level 1 license.
