Do drivers need to make an appointment to take permit tests?
Each state has its own testing requirements, but generally a written knowledge test is required for a drivers permit. These permit tests are usually given at a specific testing site. Most states don’t require an appointment for testing, but appointments may be recommended at certain locations or if you need accommodations such as having someone read the test to you.
There may also be certain documentation requirements you must meet to get your learners permit. In
