Appointments in Washington
The Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) offers appointments for driving tests, motorcycle riding tests, sidecar/trike riding tests and commercial driver's license (CDL) skills tests. There are also appointment-only offices for enhanced driver's license and enhanced identification (EDL/EID) cards. See below for more information.
Appointments can be made at the WA DOL for the following services:
You must visit an EDL/EID office in person to apply for an EDL/EID. For your convenience, schedule an appointment at an appointment-only office by calling (360) 902-3900.
To avoid lines and shorten wait time, plan your visit to the WA DOL accordingly. The most convenient times to visit are Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or any weekday morning. Avoid DOL offices at lunchtime, Saturdays, the first business day after a holiday and weekdays after 3 p.m.
Wait time may also be shortened by pre-applying online if getting your WA license, ID card or permit for the first time. You must have a valid WA state street address to use this system.
Not all tasks require an in-person visit to the WA DOL. Find out what you can take care of from your own computer by accessing our Online Services page.
