The Details of Schedule your road test

What you need for Schedule your road test

Delays during pandemic: Please note that road tests are scheduled 60 days in advance and fill up quickly. Times slots are added each business day throughout the day so if there are no available times, try again later. 

To schedule your road test, you must provide your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth 
  • Social Security number
  • Learner’s permit number

You can select a location and time that is convenient to you.

You may also pay your driver's license and road test fee at the time of scheduling or after your road test. However, your driver's license will not be issued until all fees have been paid.

Applicants under 18 must complete all Junior Operator License requirements.

If you are under 18 and are applying for a motorcycle (Class M) license, you must complete a Massachusetts Rider Education Program (MREP).

If you're over 18, you don't need to complete a Driver’s Education Program or MREP unless you have failed two motorcycle tests.

Fees for Schedule your road test

You may pay your road test and license fees online. This transaction can be done before or after you pass the road test and will eliminate the need to visit an RMV Service Center.

After passing your passenger (Class D) or motorcycle (Class M) road test, paying the fees, and proving lawful presence (if applicable), your permit will immediately serve as your temporary driver's license until the permanent license is delivered via the mail.

Commercial  (Class A, B, or C) applicants may pay fees online, but must visit an RMV Service Center to have the license issued after passing the Commercial Driver's License (CDL) road test.

Road test fees are not refunded if you:

  • Fail the test
  • Are unprepared
  • Do not have a registered vehicle
  • Are late or do not appear
  • Cancel or reschedule your test with less than 72 hours notice
Name Fee Unit
Road Test Fee $35 each

Next steps for Schedule your road test

Be prepared for your road test

When you take your road test, you will need to bring the following:

  1. A completed road test application
    • If you are under age 18, your parent or guardian must complete the parental consent section on the application
  2. Your learner's permit.
  3. A qualified sponsor
    • Note: A sponsor is not required for a motorcycle road test.

You will be given approximately 5 minutes to familiarize yourself with the state vehicle controls. You will not be permitted a practice drive. 

During the State of Emergency, with limited exceptions for the foreseeable future, state vehicles will be used to conduct road tests to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and their sponsors. Vehicles will be cleaned and disinfected between tests, and outfitted with protective barriers. Note that only the examiner and student taking the road test will be permitted in the vehicle for the duration of the road test. Sponsors must wait outside or in their own vehicle. Both the examiner and the student taking the test are required to wear facial coverings for the duration of the test. For more information, click here.

Attention: Applicants who obtained a learner's permit BEFORE 3/26/18 and will not take a road test until AFTER 3/26/18.

Beginning March 26, 2018, getting a driver’s license will require additional documentation to prove U.S. Citizenship or lawful presence in the United States.

In order to be eligible for a REAL ID or Standard driver’s license, you must prove both lawful presence and a valid stay of at least 12 months in the U.S. Passing the road test alone will NOT make you a licensed driver.  You will remain a learner’s permit holder until you have passed the road test, paid all fees, and provided the required documentation. Visit mass.gov/id for more information.

Road Test Availability

If you have a road test scheduled, and you would like to see if there is a road test available sooner than your scheduled date, you will need to cancel your current road test first. If you cancel your road test and then change your mind, the RMV cannot guarantee that your original time slot will be available.

You can also cancel your road test online.  

Failed Road Tests

If you fail your road test, you must wait 2 weeks before taking another test.
