Driver's license \ 8 hours road safety class\ CT

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there :)

Did any of you know if it is MANDATORY to take the 8 hours road safety course before signing up for the road test?

I have been using my international driver's license, they are valid in CT for a year. And they show that I have over 7 years of experience driving a car. Now that I am looking at the DMV CT web-site it is not clear if the holder of the international driver's license has to take this 8 hours cours.

Your experience? Anyone from CT?

Thank you :)

PS. Enjoy spring, people of the East Coast :)

Hi,I am currently in Florida,and I am holding the international driving licence too.

What I got from my fiance and driving instructor here,there is no requirement that you need to take 8 hours road course,unless you want to practise your driving skills before put yourself on the road (which is i am doing my 6 hours coruse now). But what you need is to pass the permit test,then you can directly go to the DMV to do the road test,easy enough! Hope this information may help you

I grew up in CT, and most likely we will live there as well after this process. She is from Australia, so they drive on the wrong side of the road there, I think she will need plenty of practice to learn to drive on the right side. ;)

I would go to the local DMV (not many left these days), and ask to speak with an information officer regarding international driving. Let us know what you discover, because we will need to go through this process ourselves hopefully soon.

Hi :)

I talked to people at DMV. After a pretty long explanation about my status ( I came on K1) they told me I can use my Ukrainian international driver's licence for up to one year. Yay!

The Next step - to get a learner's permit. To do that I need to take a knowledge test ( computer-based). Because I am a holder of the international driver's license I can take my road test even the next day after obtaining my learner's permit. ( people who never held driver's license will need to wait for 90 days before taking the road test).

But before signing up for the road test you have to take an 8-hour road safety course ( it is mandatory in CT). We live in the New Haven country and there are many private centers where you can do that even over the weekends ....for around 125-150$.

I hope your wife will have a smooth transition to driving on the right side :)
