North Carolina Road Test Waived for Adult Drivers License Applicants

July 23, 2020

Road tests still aren’t being performed by examiners from the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles due to COVID-19. So now certain adults are exempt from passing one to obtain a regular license.

The DMV announced that starting Wednesday it’ll waive the road test for drivers 18 or older in several specific situations. This follows the General Assembly approving a law last month allowing drivers under 18 to defer the road test otherwise required to obtain a limited provisional license.

To qualify, adult drivers must make a license office appointment, then come in person wearing a face mask with the required documents. The waiver could apply to someone who’s passed a North Carolina driving course in the past 12 months, who previously held a North Carolina driver’s license that expired in the recent past or who has a license from another state. There are exceptions.

The waiver will continue until tests resume.
