ES – State Government launches 7,000 vacancies on CNH Social 2024

The State Governor, Renato Casagrande, launched, this Tuesday (02), another edition of the State Government’s CNH Social program, through the Espírito Santo State Traffic Department (Detran|ES). There will be 7,000 free driver’s licenses in 2024 for the entire State with the aim of providing Espírito Santo citizens with more opportunities to enter the job market, being divided into two phases throughout the year.

Registration for the first phase, with 3,500 places, began at 12pm this Tuesday (02) and remains open until 11:59pm on April 20, 2024, exclusively on the official Detran|ES website, .br. The vacancies are to obtain the first license in categories A (motorcycle) or B (car); and, for those who are already qualified, the addition of category A or B and the change to category D (van, minibus, bus) or E (truck and trailer).

The list of names of those selected in the program will be published on May 6, 2024, at 12 pm, on the Detran|ES website. This year, in addition to 5% of the vacancies reserved for Persons with Disabilities (PCD), 8% of the vacancies will also be allocated to those released from the prison system through Technical Cooperation signed between Detran|ES and the Secretariat of Justice (Sejus) . If these reserved vacancies are not filled, the vacant number will be reverted to broad competition.

“CNH Social is a program that makes me very happy. A program that provides opportunities to people who need them most. This is the reason the public service exists. We want a State that is efficient, that has good public policies and CNH Social is a program that reduces inequality. How many people would like to have a driver’s license to work, but are unable to afford these costs. That’s why it’s great to see how many people got a job after obtaining their driver’s license through the program,” said Governor Casagrande.

The general director of Detran|ES, Givaldo Vieira, celebrated another delivery to society. “Being able to offer the population over 7,000 opportunities to obtain a driver’s license is something that deserves to be celebrated. Because, it is about providing thousands of people with opportunities to enter the job market. Even more so now with the offers for those released from the prison system and their families. It’s a chance to relocate, to start life over again”, he pointed out.

Dreams realized through the program

Jusciara Cristina Gama, resident of Vitória, is now a nursing technician and started driving an ambulance after making the change to category D through the CNH Social program in 2023:

“I’m from Bahia and I moved here to the state six years ago in search of improvements and that’s what happened. I was at home watching the newspaper and saw that the program was going to launch, I went to the website and signed up. The day after my birthday the selection list came out and my name was there. I got this birthday present. This driver’s license gives me more opportunities to improve my job. In October, I took the test and in November I was already working as an ambulance driver. Now, with this new registration phase, I want to try to qualify for category E to have even more job opportunities. The driver’s license gives us independence, especially women. The program is real, it gives opportunities, I recommend that people sign up and don’t give up,” she said.

For elderly caregiver Magna Cristina Correia, from Vila Velha, CNH Social is helping to make a dream come true. “I wanted to drive bigger cars and I saw in this CNH Social opportunity the possibility of making this dream come true. I qualified for category D and I want to reach category E so I can drive a truck and work driving on the roads all over Brazil. I also took a specialized School Transport course through the program. It is a new horizon that is opening up to improve employment and wages. I didn’t believe I could get selected, but I got it the first time and it’s really worth trying,” she said.

New opportunity

Candidates who are not selected on this list will also have a new opportunity to be included in the single call for substitutes, which will be announced on July 8th, starting at 12pm, also on the Detran|ES website. The list of substitutes aims to offer unfilled vacancies after disqualification of candidates selected on the first list who do not respect the deadlines established in the Qualification process. Recipients must pay attention to the registration deadlines and stages of the Qualification process.


To register, interested parties must access the website, access the ‘CNH Social’ program banner or button on the main page and enter the requested personal information. All data provided must accurately match the information contained in CadÚnico.

Active registrations in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government will be considered those launched in the National Registration Base until February 9, 2024.

The candidate must also select the desired category, among the following options: First License category A (motorcycle) or First License B (car) for those who are not yet qualified. Anyone who already has a driver’s license can select Add Category A (motorcycle), Add Category B (car), Change to Category D (e.g.: van and bus) or Change to Category E (e.g.: truck and trailer). It is worth noting that, after registration, it is not possible to change the chosen category.

Places are distributed as follows: 40% for the first qualification (A or B); 20% for Category A or B Addition; and 40% for Changing Category D or E. The objective is to focus on professional training, aiming to provide drivers with opportunities to enter the job market and increase employability.

Registration of graduates

To enroll, graduates of the prison system must be duly registered with the Department of Justice (Sejus), through the Social Office, and meet the requirements set out in the program notice. In total, there are 280 vacancies allocated to this audience.

Expression of interest in vacancies must be made by the interested party to Sejus, which will send the list of candidates to Detran|ES. Graduates will be selected up to a limit of 8% of the vacancies that will be available for the specific segment. In case of vacancy in the reserved places, these will be reverted to the broad competition.

“It is an initiative that generates citizenship and opens doors to the job market. The moment of leaving prison is one of vulnerability and when we encourage new beginnings, such as the opportunity to obtain a driver’s license, we also promote the transformation of lives. This support network offered to graduates is extremely important for social reintegration and the reduction of criminal recidivism”, commented the Secretary of State for Justice, Rafael Pacheco.

The selection of candidates is carried out electronically, without human interference, in accordance with the program criteria and based on the information provided by the beneficiaries themselves in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico), considering the following criteria: lower income per capita; greater number of members in the family group; candidates with complete primary education; beneficiary of Bolsa Família; and date and time of registration.

Free benefits granted to those selected

Candidates selected in the CNH Social Program complete the entire qualification process until obtaining their driver’s license free of charge. The beneficiary is entitled to the following procedures: biometric capture at the Detran|ES branch; medical and psychological examinations in a clinic accredited by Detran|ES; a toxicological test for categories D or E in a laboratory accredited by the National Traffic Secretariat (Senatran); 20 Theoretical and practical classes at the driving school; three failures, whether in the theoretical or practical test; two extra classes (in case of failure in the practical test, only the candidate who did not fail the theoretical test will be entitled). In case of absence, the candidate must pay the test rescheduling fee and the fees charged by the driving school.


In addition to the qualification, beneficiaries who had their last driver’s license issued with the CNH Social benefit will also be able to go through the Training Stage, which offers Specialized and Update Courses for professional drivers aiming to train and qualify drivers in order to professionalize them, increasing, thus, employability. The following Specialized Courses are offered: Transport of Dangerous Products, School Transport, Passenger Transport, Transport of Indivisible Cargo and Transport of Emergency Vehicles, Motorcycle Taxi or Motor Freight. Accredited companies that offer professional courses are available here. The driver must appear, in person, at an accredited company to register for the course of their choice.

To enroll in a Specialized Course for Professionals, you must have had your last driver’s license issued with the CNH Social benefit; be over 21 years old; have a valid driving license; not have committed any serious or very serious infraction or be a repeat offender of medium infractions during the last 12 months; and not serving a sentence of suspension of the right to drive or revocation of the driver’s license.
