How long will the road test waiver program be available?
The road test waiver program will likely run through calendar year 2020. This limited duration pilot will allow the DMV to measure any difference in outcomes between those receiving the waiver and those who take the road test. Those taking the waiver will be informed that they may be subject to testing after licensure if the DMV makes that determination.
While this program is different than what has been done for many years, the DMV has determined that this is an appropriate pilot program given all the required training, practice hours, and GDL restrictions. This pilot will not become permanent unless there is a law passed changing these requirements.
