Skills (Driving) Test
You must pass the knowledge test and obtain an instruction permit for a given class of license or endorsement before you schedule your skills test.
Skills tests are administered by appointment. Larger offices also offer tests on a stand-by basis. Rural offices do not offer stand-by tests. Not all DMV locations offer all tests.
Please have your instruction permit number or social security number ready when you call or schedule online. You must call to cancel a test.

The examiner will perform a safety inspection on your vehicle and check your registration and insurance. Vehicles must be properly registered and insured.
You do not have to use your own vehicle, but you must have a vehicle in the same license class as you are applying for. You may not use a rental car.
Most beginning drivers under 18 must present a driver's education Certificate of Completion and a Beginning Driver Experience Log.
