Department of Motor Vehicles
Applying for a Driver’s License1
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is located on the fourth floor of City Hall. Business hours are Monday through Thursday 9:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. and Friday 12 noon to 8:30 P.M. Closed on holidays.
The fee for a first-time driver’s license is $100, payable by check or credit card. You must take both a written test and a road test. Study manuals for the written test are available at the General Information desk in Room 400. Call the General Information desk at 473-555-7839 to make an appointment to take your tests. When you arrive for your appointment, you will take the written test first and then the road test.
If you fail the written test, a thirty-day wait is required before taking the test again. You will not be permitted to take the road test until you have passed the written test. If you fail the road test, you must show a certificate of completion of a driver’s education course given by an accredited institution before retaking the test. Driving courses are offered by the DMV. Ask for a course schedule at the General Information desk.
First-time applicants are required to present a valid form of identification with a photograph such as a passport, student identification card, work identification card, or military registration card when applying for a license. Citizens of other countries are asked to present a current visa in addition to one of the above-mentioned forms of identification.
You must renew a license no more than six months after the expiration date to avoid having to retake the written and road tests. You can renew your current driver’s license in person or online. Bring your license and $65 cash or a check made out to the Department of Motor Vehicles to Room 405 during business hours. Credit cards are also accepted. License renewals can be made online at the DMV website. A credit card is required for online payment.
