Scheduling Your Road Test Appointment

You can schedule your road test online or you can call 1-800-423-5542.

If you are under the age of 18 and fail the Road Test, you will be required to wait seven (7) days before you can retake the Road Test. This delay in retaking the test will give you time to practice and to improve your driving skills. You have three (3) chances with each learner's permit to pass the Road Test before the expiration date of the learner’s permit. After the third failure, you must reapply to extend your learner’s permit.
