At a driver licensing office, you can apply for ID, take a road test, pay fines, and write the knowledge test. Find the office nearest to you, recommended times to visit and current wait times at our busiest locations.
Some services (like road tests and EDL/EIC applications) require appointments. Driver testing is available at most but not all locations. Make sure to read up on the service you need and what you need to bring with you.
