The cost of a driver’s permit depends on a few factors. Firstly, the type of license you are applying for. If you’re looking to become a taxi driver or a bus driver, it’s likely that the cost of acquiring your permit will be more expensive. The next determinant is where you live, whereas the cost is only $5.00 in West Virginia (and it’s even free in one state!), it can be a much more expensive experience in other states. For example, the standard fee in New York is currently $92.50 but also depends on your age.

A driver’s permit will also vary in price based on whether there are any administration fees to consider, whether there are any tests to take, if this is your first driver’s permit, and how old you are. In Tennessee, drivers who are under the age of 18 will pay $5.50 for their permit - $5.00 less than their adult counterparts.

This link will provide you with information on what the fees are for all 50 states: You should also remember that one of the best places to visit if you need more information about the rules and regulations on how to drive is your local state’s official website.

When it’s that all-important time of taking your driving test, make sure that you are well prepared and confident of passing with flying colors. If you decide to take the practical exam while doubting your ability, you may fail and have to pay to take the examination all over again. As you’ve learned in this answer, doing this isn’t always cheap.

Depends on your state. If you have a driver guide from your state, it should be listed in the book. This book is usually obtain from the highway patrol station, or the testing station where you go to take the driving portion. In MO it is lower than $10.00.
