MDOT MVA will be temporarily modifying the non-commercial driving skills test in consideration of the safety of customers and employees.
*Applicants will be tested on several components on an MDOT MVA course including: vehicle inspection, pull-in parking, three-point turn and back-in parking.
*In an effort to promote social distancing, the driver’s license testing agent will score the test from outside of the car.
*There will be no road test portion, however these maneuvers fulfill all safety requirements.
*The Basic Control Skills test will require the applicant to demonstrate the ability to maneuver a vehicle around other objects.
*For each exercise, the applicant is expected to drive as if on a public road.
*Points will be received for reversals in direction, crossing over or touching boundary lines or cones, failing to use or incorrectly using turn signals and failing to do head and traffic checks.
*Exercises must be completed as directed, and customers will receive specific instructions for each exercise prior to performing them.
*Customers must complete each maneuver within the provided timeframe in order to pass, and in the event a customer fails, they will need to make another appointment to take the entire test again.
*Additionally, due to the modifications, customers whose vehicles do not provide a clear view into the interior of the vehicle will be required to roll all windows down.
UPDATES WILL BE POSTED AS WE RECEIVE NEW INFORMATION.
