DMVs are open for all driver license and ID card customers. Driver licenses can be renewed online for most customers. All vehicle transactions must be done
online, by mail or 3rd party agents.
NEW: Drivers under the age of 18 who have completed a driver education course, behind the wheel training, and 50 hours of supervised driving may qualify for a
road test waiver.
See if you qualify.
UPDATE: Special safety measures are in place.
Unvaccinated individuals are required to bring a face mask or other face covering with them to wear during the road test. Avoid the risk of exposure to DMV staff and customers. If you feel ill, please reschedule your appointment. With the road test waiver pilot for those under 18, a new appointment can be easily found.
There may be occasions when road tests are scheduled during non-business hours. When this occurs, our offices will not be open to the public, and processing of any driver license or vehicle registration products cannot be done. Check the
DMV customer service centers for a complete listing of the days and times when our offices are open to the public.
