I've managed to go my entire life without getting a driver's license, and been pretty happy about the decision. However, as I prepare to move from Washington, DC to Richmond, VA, I'm ready to admit it's time.
What's the process, as an adult, for getting a driver's license? Right now I have a state-issued ID from North Carolina, and my girlfriend and I are buying a car from her sister in late March.
Should I get a license in DC? VA? NC? Do I need to get a permit first? Car insurance? How much does this tend to vary state-to-state?
I know how to drive, and I plan to ask a few friends if they'd let me get some practice with them. Do I need a permit for that first?
