Online Payment of Road Test/License Fees

Class D and M road test and license fees can be paid online using the Pay My Road Test/License Fees transaction. This can be done before or after an applicant passes the road test and will eliminate the need to visit an RMV branch. After passing the road test and if all fees have been paid, the applicant's permit will be stamped in the Validation section and immediately serve as a temporary license until the permanent license is received.


Cancellation Policy

A road test must be cancelled at least 72 hours before the scheduled test to avoid paying another road test fee. Call the RMV Telephone Center to cancel and/or reschedule a road test.

Weather Policy

Road tests will be automatically cancelled when...

  • The Governor declares a state of emergency for the entire state
  • The Governor declares a state of emergency in a certain region of the state (only road tests in this region will be cancelled)

When a public school system cancels classes for weather-related reasons, road tests scheduled in that school system's community may be cancelled at the discretion of the RMV.

Road Test Examiners may also cancel road tests when weather conditions are considered unsafe at a particular road test site.

To determine if your road test has been canceled, please call the RMV's Phone Center or check the RMV's Homepage.

You may reschedule a new road test at no additional fee if your road test was cancelled due to weather conditions.
