New adult drivers in Connecticut will soon need a learner's permit before taking the road test for a driver's license.
The three-month permit will be mandatory for drivers 18 and older starting Wednesday.
The new law ends a 106-year practice of not requiring adult drivers in Connecticut to complete a training period before getting a driver's license.
Applicants will receive an adult learner permit after passing a 25-question knowledge test and a vision test. They will also have to take an eight-hour safe driving practices course, which costs $125.
