Need your license? In Connecticut, it is REQUIRED that you take an 8-Hour Safe Driving Course, REGARDLESS of age. Driver's ed is no longer just for the 16 year old. You may have waited until you turned 18 or 19 to apply for your license, or perhaps you recently arrived in the U.S. and need to convert your International License to a Connecticut License. No matter the reason, the 8-Hour Safe Driving Course is what you need to fulfill your State Requirements, and prepare to pass your tests.
