Road Skills Test Appointment Scheduling
Schedule a driver road skills test online or call the DMV customer service center at 311 or (202) 737-4404. You may also contact directly one of the District’s third party testers who have been certified to administer the DC DMV road test.
There is also a fee for each road skills test taken.
The road skills test examines your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle, proper use of turn signals, parallel parking, and several other skills. If you are age 16 - 20, you must take the road skills test before you can qualify for a Provisional license.
If you fail the road test 6 times within a 12 month period, you will not be allowed to take the 7th test until 12 months after the 1st failed test. If you fail the road skills test, you will not be eligible to re-test until 72 hours after the test.
