License Tests

Now you can avoid the lines at the Department of Licensing by scheduling your Knowledge Exam or Skills (Behind-the-Wheel) Test at any of our Locations.  We offer a variety of days and times, evenings and weekends to accommodate you.  

You have the option of paying on-line, "pre-registering" for a preferred date and time, emailing or of calling our Call Center Monday through Friday, 8am-6pm, to lock in your date.  Please, read carefully the FAQ's below in preparation for your examination.  Or ask any one of our Call Center operators anything regarding your appointment.  (Be aware, we're experiencing extremely high volumes of calls 2-6pm daily.)

YOU MUST BRING A VALID PHOTO ID TO ANY EXAMINATION.  (E.g. Passport, State ID Card, Government ID)

CALL CENTER:  Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm  (Press '0' to speak to an agent.)
                            Saturday,  9am-2pm

Email:   Callcenter@NstarDriving.com


NOTICE:  IF you don't currently possess a WA Identification Card or Instructional Permit or LICENSE Number, you must create an account for testing by going to the Department of Licensing homepage to "Login To License Express."  That way, we can upload your test scores to the State database.   We will ask you for this 12-place Number at the time you schedule your appointment.

IF you already have a WA ID card or permit number, you do not need to set up an account.  DOL did it automatically for you.

Otherwise, go to  www.Dol.Wa.Gov and click "Login To License Express."  Have your personal information, Social Security Number and email ready so you can confirm your account.  WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GIVE the Department of Licensing your scores UNTIL you have acquired your "confirmation code" so, please, DO NOT walk into any of our branches at the time of a test thinking you may take the test without a License Express account.  Any of our frontline workers will be happy to assist you with this if you call, email, or drop in.
