How do I apply for a drivers license if I am relocating to Arkansas? Arkansas
Relocating to ArkansasThis varies a bit according to your out-of-state drivers license status.
Valid Drivers License
This includes those whose license is current, or at least didn't expire longer than 31 days ago. (Just to be clear, this doesn't include suspended or revoked licenses.)
If you're in this category, here's some good news: You don't need to take a written or moving test.
Expired Between 31-365 Days
Those whose license falls into this category must pass the written and vision exams, but not the road license test.
To prepare for the written test, you might want to take a practice test, which helps improve your chances of passing the official exam.
Expired Over 365 Days Ago
Those with licenses in this unlucky category get hit with the trifecta: the vision, written, and road tests.
The only good news? You don't have to wait a minimum amount of days after passing the written test to take the driving test.
New Resident Documentation RequirementsNo matter which category your license falls under, bring the following to the ODS office:
- Proof of legal presence (such as a U.S. birth certificate or valid passport).
- Two primary forms of identification or one primary and secondary (see the ODS site for details).
- Your Social Security number or a signed affidavit saying you weren't issued a number.
Additional Driver License InfoOther relocation requirements may apply to your situation. For more information regarding relocating and drivers licenses, call the AR ODS at (501) 682-7060.
