DMV Appointments in Arkansas

At this time, the Arkansas State Police only allow commercial driver's license (CDL) applicants to make appointments ahead of time. Keep in mind though, not all tasks require an in-person visit to a branch office. You might actually be able to save yourself some time by using the online services offered by the state.

Types of AR Appointments

All driver's license testing is done by the Arkansas State Police. As mentioned above, you can only schedule an appointment ahead of time if you're taking the road test for a CDL. The commercial road tests are given at the following AR State Police office locations:

  • Little Rock.
  • Newport.
  • Russellville.
  • Hope.
  • Pine Bluff.
  • Springdale.

For all other types of license tests, you simply need to show up between the appropriate hours for testing. You can check the testing times specific to your county using the Arkansas State Police's interactive map.

If you're making an appointment for your CDL road skills test, you will need to:

  • Select your county from the interactive map on the AR State Police website.
