Driver Licensing

Driver License Office By County

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.

REMINDER:  Driver Exam Stations are short-staffed between 11:30AM and 1:30PM, so you may experience longer than normal wait times.

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

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

No drive tests will be given between 11:30AM and 1:30PM or within 1 hour of normal closing time.

Payment accepted by cash, check, money order and credit/debit cards at all city locations (no credit/debit cards accepted at county locations). There is a $2.00 processing fee or 2.95% whichever is greater.
