Road Test Information

What Is A Road Test?

A drivers license examiner will assess your ability to maintain control of your vehicle at all times, whether it be driving forward or backwards, maintaining your proper lane position, turning left or right or driving straight ahead during your road test. You will also be judged on how well you observe and react to other drivers and pedestrians, as well as traffic signs, signals and conditions. 

Note: The road test will not be given until all other tests have been successfully completed.  

Where Are Road Tests Administered?

When you are ready to take the road test, mail the road test request card to the main office of the  Bureau of Motor Vehicles, 29 State House Station, Augusta, Maine 04333-0029.  You will be scheduled at the testing location nearest to you. 

Who Must Take A Road Test?

Anyone applying for a first license, or anyone changing their license classification.   Applicants with a valid out-of-state license may not be required to take the written or the road test.
