You don’t have to, but we recommend it. Most DPS offices allow you to schedule a driving exam. Be aware that some DPS offices may be booked months in advance for driving exams. You can look at multiple DPS locations nearest you to find the earliest date and time possible for you and your student.
Check your local DPS office to see if they offer online scheduling.
If online scheduling is available, the office listing will include a link to “Schedule a driving test online” or “Get in line online.”
If your local DPS does not offer this service, it could be a long wait.
If you’re nervous, just tell yourself, “I’m Aceable,” because you ARE.
