The Details of Schedule your road test
What you need for Schedule your road test
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:
- Date of birth
- 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
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
If you do not prepay for your road test you only have 60 calendar days from the date you pass your road test to apply for a driver’s license at an RMV Service Center. If you do not, you will have to take and pass a new road test at your expense. It is unlawful for you to driver if your learner’s permit expires prior to you obtaining a temporary driver’s license.

More info for Schedule your road test
To check the date and location of your scheduled road test, visit your profile online.
You’ll also need to decide between a Standard driver’s license/ID and a REAL ID driver’s license/ID. Beginning May 7, 2025, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license or identification card, or another TSA-acceptable form of identification, for domestic air travel and to enter certain federal facilities.
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.
