Driving skills tests are by appointment only

HONOLULU -- O‘ahu residents are reminded that road tests for earning a driver license are now by appointment only.

Standby and walk-in services are not available until further notice due to public health concerns.

The move coincides with a series of steps the city has taken to support the Centers of Disease Control's recommendation for social distancing and avoiding lines and public gatherings. The city is already operating under an appointment-only system for driver license and state identification services.

In addition, the vehicles used for the road test must be street legal, meaning turn signals, hazard lights, wipers and horn are all in working condition.
