Registrar of Motor Vehicles Daniel A. Grabauskas today announced that the Registry will now offer road tests on weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Registry and Massachusetts State Police agreed to the change in hours to better accommodate Registry customers.
"The Cellucci-Swift Administration is dedicated to improving Registry services for our customers across the state." said Registrar Grabauskas. "We appreciate the efforts of the State Police who realized that this change better reflects school hours and will make taking the test more convenient for applicants."
Colonel John DiFava, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police said, "We are pleased that we are able to address the needs of license applicants in a cost effective manner that will enhance the service we provide to the public."
Hours for road tests were previously 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The 8:00 a.m. start time often meant that test applicants had to arrange to meet troopers at off site locations and wait in their cars for the test to begin.
"Under the new system road test hours will coincide with Registry office hours of operation allowing officers and applicants a warm, safe and dry place to meet," added Grabauskas.
