The Details of Schedule your road test

What you need for Schedule your road test

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 for more information.

To schedule your road test, you must provide your:

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

Fees for Schedule your road test

You can pay your road test and driver's license fees:

  • 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.

More info about 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 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.
