Absolutely. We cannot take you on the road without a valid permit. If you have lost your permit, you should apply for a duplicate permit at any license center. Bring your identification, a parent or guardian and $15.50. (State fees are subject to change without notice.) You do not need to retake the permit test. You cannot use the white application receipt that you got when you applied for your first permit. It is not valid once the hard copy has been issued.
