A Guide to Getting a Driver’s License in Virginia

Even if you already have a license, it might expire sometime soon.

Even if you already have a license, it might expire sometime soon. If you live in Virginia, then you might have a harder time getting a license than if you live in Maryland or work in DC, both of which are likely to have different license requirements.

It doesn’t matter where you live in Virginia, either. Besides learning how to drive and operate a car, other lessons include how to deal with road rage and other dangerous situations, along with how to not get distracted while behind the wheel. All of these matters are important for every driver to know, not just rookie drivers about to get their first licenses
