Drivers Permits in New HampshireUnlike most other states New Hampshire does not require a learner's permit for teen drivers. This does not mean, however, that the state is overstepping its "Live Free of Die" motto, for it still mandates that certain requirements must be met.
To take the wheel in New Hampshire you must be at least 15½ years old and be accompanied by a licensed adult at least 25 years old in the front passenger seat.
You can apply for a license once you hit 16 years old, provided you have completed a driver education course.
