Frequently Asked Questions:

Getting a Massachusetts Driver License

New Drivers

New drivers in Massachusetts must be at least 16 years of age. To begin the process, start a learner’s permit application online. The online system will help you determine what types of documentation you need to provide in order to obtain your permit. You will need to bring your required identification and the application you started online to a Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) Service Center. If you are under 18, you will also need parent or guardian approval.

New Massachusetts drivers will also need to complete an online knowledge exam before earning their permit. This exam covers rules of the road and identifying road signs, as well as alcohol misuse, suspensions, and Junior Operator License (JOL) violations. To prepare for the exam, study the Massachusetts Class D driver’s manual.

After obtaining a permit, drivers can take a road test at an RMV Service Center to advance to a JOL (if under 18) or a standard Massachusetts driver’s license.

Massachusetts License Renewal

Massachusetts driver’s licenses for most drivers are renewable for five-year terms. Begin your renewal process at the RMV’s Online Service Center. You will need to verify your identity and follow the prompts to complete your transaction online. You will not be allowed to renew if you have unpaid parking tickets, excise tax, or EZ-Pass violations, or if your license is suspended or revoked. Check the status of your license online to ensure that you are approved for renewal.

You can also renew your license in person at an RMV Service Center, or if you are a member of AAA, you can complete your renewal at an AAA branch office.

Massachusetts REAL ID

If your Massachusetts driver’s license doesn’t have a star in the upper right-hand corner, you won’t be able to use it to board domestic flights or access federal facilities, such as military basis, after October 1, 2021.

A REAL ID requires an in-person visit to a Massachusetts RMV Service Center and more substantial proof of identity than standard Massachusetts driver’s licenses. A REAL ID video has been provided for those in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to know what identity and residency documentation is required to obtain a REAL ID. You have the option of converting your standard license to a REAL ID during your renewal period for no additional charge. You can also choose not to upgrade your license if you don’t plan to use it for travel identification or federal facilities access.


How to Get an Insurance Discount

If you have confirmed with your agent that you’re eligible for an insurance discount, simply:

  1. register for a DriveSafe Online Massachusetts course
  2. review the videos in the course
  3. pass the final exam

Then provide your agent with the certificate of completion emailed to you after you finish the course. You may even have the certificate emailed directly to your agent to save time.  If you’re eligible, your agent will use the certificate to apply a defensive driving discount.

Massachusetts RMV Information

In Massachusetts, the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is the government agency responsible for issuing driver’s licenses and providing other vehicle-related services. Many of the services provided by the Massachusetts RMV are available online through the RMV’s Online Service Center. You can also schedule road tests through the site.
