The Parental Authorization Affidavit is used by a parent or guardian to grant permission of a minor (under age 18) when they apply for a license, permit, or endorsement.
How to use the form to grant permission
This form is not required if the adult or guardian granting permission is present at the time we issue a license, permit, or endorsement.
The Parental Authorization Affidavit form (available in English, Español, Русский, and more) must be signed in the presence of a notary public or one of our licensing service representatives.
- The adult granting permission takes the form (printed on white paper) to a notary public or driver licensing office along with their own license or ID card.
- The adult granting permission fills out and signs the form in the presence of the notary public or licensing service representative.
- The minor submits the completed form as part of the application, and establishes their identity with other documents.
