DMV Appointments in Idaho
The Idaho Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) allows you to make appointments for road skills tests only. See below for more information.
For all other driver and vehicle services you must wait in line. Office hours vary at some locations and are subject to frequent changes. Please call your nearest DMV location to inquire about current office hours.
Schedule a Road Skills Test
Appointments may be scheduled at the DMV for your road skills tests only. These include the Class D operator’s license, the commercial driver’s license (CDL) and motorcycle skills license. Please go to the Idaho Driver Services skills test page for updated contact information. When calling to schedule your appointment, remember the following:
- If leaving a message, leave your full name and a number where you may be reached. Speak clearly.
- If you need to reschedule or find a better appointment time with a different tester, please remember to cancel your original appointment.
- You may schedule your appointment in any county. The test does not need to be taken in your home county.
Not all tasks require an in-person visit to the DMV offices. Find out what you can take care of from your own computer by accessing our Online Services page.
