DMV Appointments in Vermont
The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) currently offers an appointment system for scheduling all tests (written, vision or skills) by phone or e-mail. It is required that you have an appointment for the commercial driver's license (CDL) test. All others may be done on a walk-in basis, although it is not recommended, as scheduled appointments have priority. Check your local DMV office for days and hours of operation.
Schedule your appointment by phone or e-mail. Do not do both. If you need to reschedule or cancel a test, call Central Scheduling at (802) 828-2085.
