DMV Appointments in Kentucky

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Division of Driver Licensing (DDL) allows you to schedule certain types of appointments ahead of time. This guide will teach you about the different kinds of appointments you can make, how to schedule them, and what materials you'll need to bring when you visit.

The state also provides a variety of online services, which can help you accomplish many vehicle and driver-related tasks from the comfort of your own home.

Types of Kentucky DDL Appointments

Currently, you can schedule appointments for visits to certain DDL offices regarding behind-the-wheel exams for:

  • Standard (Class D) driver license.
  • Motorcycle license.
  • Commercial driver license (CDL).

How to Schedule a Kentucky DDL Appointment

Not all DDL locations administer road exams by appointment. You'll need to check to see if your local testing site will allow you to schedule a behind-the-wheel test for:

  • Standard driver's license.
  • Motorcycle license.

If you've determined you can make the appointment, call the office where you plan on taking your test. Be sure to schedule your exam between the acceptable times, indicated on the Division of Driver Licensing office location webpage.

Commercial driver's license road tests are administered by the Kentucky State Police office. To schedule an appointment for your CDL road skills exam you will need to call (800) 542-5990.
