A driver's license is a document issued by a government authority, typically after the applicant has passed a driving test, that provides the holder with permission to operate a motor vehicle on public roads. In most jurisdictions, it is illegal to drive without a valid driver's license, and offenders may be subject to fines and other penalties. Although the requirements for obtaining a driver's license vary from one jurisdiction to another, they typically include passing a written exam, completing a behind-the-wheel driving test, and meeting age and other minimum standards. In some jurisdictions, applicants must also pass a vision test. Once issued, a driver's license typically remains valid for several years, after which it must be renewed. The process for renewing a license typically includes passing a vision test and paying a fee.
