Canceled appointments will be rescheduled automatically. New appointments will be allowed to be scheduled later this summer.
The DMV anticipates it will take several weeks to complete testing for previously canceled tests. Appointments for new behind-the-wheel tests will not be available until previously canceled tests are completed.
For the health and safety of customers and examiners, the DMV is instituting numerous new testing protocols. All behind-the-wheel drive test applicants will be required to wear a face covering and answer screening questions before starting the exam. Initially, applicants in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties also will have their temperatures checked. Temperature checks will be added to protocols statewide in the coming weeks. If the customer’s permit has expired, the customer will need to fill out a new online application prior to their office visit, and check in 30 minutes before their appointment time.
DMV examiners will wear protective equipment – face coverings and gloves – and place plastic covers on the test vehicle’s passenger seat and floorboard. At least two windows need to be lowered during the test for increased ventilation. Examiners will conduct more of the test outside of the vehicle, for instance when they are providing applicants with pre-test instructions.
The DMV is also making changes to expedite the testing process and increase the number of exams it can administer each day, including shortening the testing route in many locations. The test routes will be long enough to adequately determine driving knowledge and safety skills. The DMV is also expanding the hours when tests are conducted, including Saturday service for drive tests in some high-volume locations, and adding more examiners.
Employees at 169 field offices are assisting customers with current appointments at the specific office and limited transactions that require an in-person visit. The DMV continues to recommend that customers use its online services, expanded virtual services and other service channels to complete transactions, including eligible driver license and vehicle registration renewals.

Driver license permits expiring between March and June 30, 2020 are extended six months or to a date 24 months from the date of application, whichever is earlier. The extensions require no individual action on the part of drivers. The DMV is extending these permits for those who may not be able to get a driver license while behind-the-wheel drive tests are suspended. The DMV has alerted California law enforcement of the extensions. California drivers may continue to drive with their expired permits. Californians with a suspended record are not eligible for the temporary extension.
Please note that as of May 26th, 2020, I was told that that they would not allow permit testing. However I have had several students submit their paperwork on-line, backing it up with hard copies when they went into the Slo DMV office. They were allowed to take and receive their permits. Way to go! Try the link below. Hope this helps.
Getting my licenses and catching my first wave were mine first big things, sure there were more
