Facility Information

Road tests generally are available until 30 minutes prior to closing; however, the number of customers waiting for road tests may necessitate an earlier cut-off time. If you are taking a road test, you must show a vehicle insurance card. Road tests will not be started after dark regardless of the time, and may be denied or discontinued due to unsafe road, weather or vehicle conditions.

CDL Road Tests are by appointment only.
Schedule an appointment.

Cash, check, credit cards and debit cards are accepted for Secretary of State transactions. Discover, MasterCard and American Express are the only credit and debit cards accepted at this time. Only checks and money orders are accepted for Department of Revenue transactions.
