Do I have to take a license test or driving test to obtain an IN drivers license? Indiana

About the only way to avoid having to take an Indiana driving test is to have a valid drivers license from another state.

Even in that case, you still must pass an Indiana vision and written license test. And, if your out-of-state license expired longer than three years ago - or you've had your driver license for less than a year - you must also pass the Indiana road test.

Otherwise, if you've never been a licensed driver, you will have to take - and pass - all the mentioned tests.

Appointments Necessary?

Yes and no. You'll need an appointment for the road test, but not the vision and written tests.

Practice Tests

It's a good idea to take a practice test or two (available online) before attempting the written test. Doing so can help show you how ready you are for the official exam and which areas need improvement.
