Driver Licensing

Driver License Office By City

Please note:  We experience higher customer volume in the summer months, so please be prepared for longer wait times. The best time to visit a Driver Exam Station is mid-month, mid-week, or mid-morning. The busiest times are before and after a holiday weekend, Tuesdays, and Friday afternoons. Renewals and duplicates occur on the same days and times as drive test exams.

IMPORTANT: Your driver license/ID card application must be submitted at least one hour before closing time.

REMINDER: Driver Exam Stations are short-staffed from 11:30am to 1:30pm, so you may experience longer than normal wait times. No drive tests will be given between 11:30am and 1:30pm or within 1 hour of normal closing times.

Motorcycle exams can be completed during regular exam times.  The roads must be dry to give a motorcycle drive test.

Payment accepted by cash, check, or money order and WE NOW ACCEPT CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS at all city locations, but not county locations.  There is a $2.00 processing fee.
