Written and skills testings are now available by appointment only under our COVID-19 requirements. Please review these prior to setting up an appointment with our office.
Schedule a Skills (drive) Test
If you received a letter from DOL to take an examination due to a physical, mental, visual or any medical issue, you must test at a DOL office. Failure to disclose this information prior to testing will result in your test not being honored at DOL to obtain your license and we will not refund the test fee.
Your car must be legal to operate on public streets. This includes, but is not limited to: windshield (no obstructions), seat belts, minimum tread on tires, mirrors, working lights (including headlights, brake and reverse lights, turn signals) and be legally licensed with current tabs and both license plates (front and rear).
You will need to demonstrate arm signals prior to beginning the skills test.
Pursuant to RCW 46.20.720 a driver convicted of an alcohol offense may be required to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in order to drive. The applicant must take the skills exam in their vehicle using the IID.
Applicants are required to provide proof of insurance and current registration, (current tabs), of their vehicle on the day of the test.
At the time of the test, provide proof of identification such as a photo permit, out of state license, or school year book.
Current and former students must use the Student Portal to schedule their road test.
