You take a road test to show us that you can safely drive under real-life conditions, have developed proper driving habits essential to safe driving, and can apply your knowledge of traffic laws into actual practice.
We offer commercial, non-commercial, and motorcycle road tests at some DMV offices.
Please schedule your road test online or in person.
What do I bring to the DMV to take my road test?
- An operational vehicle with two license plates, and the following in good working condition:
- headlights with high and low beams
- tail lights
- turn signals
- windshield wipers
- rearview mirror
- at least a quarter tank of gas
- windshield free of cracks in line of vision
- A parental consent form 433 if you are under 18. If your parent will not be present with you, your parental consent form must be notarized.
- Your permit or written test scores
- Two pieces of identification and social security number (please see primary and secondary documents)
- Vehicle registration
- Proof of insurance
- $15 for noncommercial passenger vehicle and motorcycle tests. $25 for commercial tests.
My windshield is cracked. Can I still take my road test?
You may still take your road test if the crack does not affect your line of sight or the examiner’s.
Do I have to have studded tires in the winter?
You do not need studded tires to take your road test during the winter. However, you will not be permitted to road test if you have studded tires during times they are unlawful.
Can I take my motorcycle test in the winter?
No. Motorcycle road tests are not given in the winter months. The motorcycle course must be free of snow, ice, and standing water to ensure the safety of the applicant and examiner.
I completed a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course. Do I still have to road test with DMV?
No. If you present proof that you have successfully completed the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course, you do not need to road test at DMV. However, you must show proof to DMV within one year of passing the course.
Does anyone else offer road testing?
DMV has authorized third parties to conduct road tests for the general public. These parties are all independent businesses and set their own fees.
