Practice the basic control and on-the-road driving skills described in the Driving Skills Test Study Guide. A licensed adult must be with you at all times. You must practice for at least 30 days before taking your driving skills test. If you have a valid foreign driver's license, a license from another state or were previously licensed in Michigan, the 30-day practice period may be waived. Although driver education is not required for anyone over 18, it is highly recommended. State certified driver education providers are regulated by the Department of State. Fees and policies vary. Not all providers offer driver education for adults, so make sure to ask.
