DMV Appointments in Missouri
At this time, in Missouri, the only test you need to schedule an appointment for is the driving skills test when applying for a commercial driver's license (CDL). You may schedule this test by phone; please read the section below for more details.
For all other driver and vehicle related services at the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) you must wait in line. Keep in mind not all require an in-person visit to a branch office; find out which online services you can take care of from your own computer.
All driver testing in Missouri is done by the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Driver Examination Division. To take the CDL skills test you must book an appointment first. Simply call your local State Highway Patrol Troop to book your appointment. Please make sure you are on time and have the necessary documents.
If you must pay a visit to your MO DOR or State Highway Patrol, go during low-traffic times. The following suggestions could save you time standing in line.
