The Details

What you need

To schedule your road test, you must provide your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth 
  • Social Security number

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.

  • at the time you schedule your road test either over the phone or online
  • before your road test either online, over the phone, or in-person

Next steps

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
  4. An acceptable, properly equipped, and legally registered vehicle to use for your test

Refer to the information sheets below to be prepared.

More info

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 and paying the fees online, 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

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.
