Coronavirus has made us rethink the way so many things are being done, and driving tests are no different.

Starting today (7/22), the North Carolina DMV will begin waiving road tests for drivers who are 18 or older.

The way it works now, a teen, after a year of driving under parental supervision with a learner’s permit can typically take a test to get a license  but due to the pandemic that has changed.

Now, you will have to make an appointment at your nearest DMV office on NDCOT’s website to get a level 2 or 3 driver’s license which will only allow you to drive to work, class, and or visit family as in-person tests are now waived for the foreseeable future.

There are so many things that are changing because of the coronavirus, and to be honest, I didn’t even think about the DMV and how they are having to adjust.

If you are visiting the DMV soon, for any reason, remember to wear your mask!
