How long will the road test waiver program be available?
The road test waiver program will run through calendar year 2020. Possibly all of 2021! 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 choosing the waiver may be informed that they may be subject to a road test even 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.
