Default Drivers License MO

I've looked for info on drivers license in Missouri. Not finding much of the website!

It states I need insurance to do the road test, but obviously I don't have insurance on my girlfriends car as I, well, don't have a license, and I couldn't get insurance without a license? Does anyone know what to do? Looking to do my tests asap now.

Do you already have a non-US license?
If so, you can get insurance (be added to your girlfriend's insurance).

US insurance usually covers the vehicle— they want to confirm that the vehicle is insured.

Yeah, I have my full UK license. Do they accept that? I was just under the impression I need a MO license of some kind to drive etc.

Was added to my wife's policy with my UK licence. Passed test and then informed insurer of new licence details.

You can usually drive for at least a month or two on your foreign license. If you so wish, you should be able to buy a car, take out your own insurance (required if you buy a car!) and drive around for a while, before eventually getting your MO license.

Here in MD I had to 1) take an online sober driving course 2) take an in-person exam based on the course 3) usual eye-sight exam 4) in-person rules of the road multiple-choice exam 5) on-road driving test. We do things properly in MD
None of it was taxing, just took some organisation.
