Schedule California DMV Appointment

California's Department of Motor Vehicles offers a online appointment scheduler for many driving-related tasks. You can also schedule an appointment by calling (800) 777-0133. We recommend doing it online so that you don't have to wait on hold.

Common reasons to set an appointment include:

  • Driving tests (non-commercial)
  • Applying for a state ID card or learner's permit
  • Obtaining a title or registration
  • Getting license plates and stickers
  • Applying for moving permits
  • Having a salvage/junk vehicle inspection

The state's appointment FAQ page provides a complete list of tasks you may schedule. Just keep in mind that you may only schedule appointments up to 90 days in advance, and that same-day appointments are not available.

Scheduling More Than Three CA DMV Tasks?

If you're trying to schedule more than three DMV tasks, call (800) 777-0133 to set up the appointments. And, if you're trying to schedule a driving test other than a non-commercial class C or motorcycle test, you must call this number, too.
