Contactless Road Tests & Road Test Waivers

Contactless road tests are now available at limited locations by appointment for those who may not be eligible for a waiver or those Level 2 drivers that have received a waiver and now need a road test to advance to Level 3. See if you are eligible for a contactless road test.

Temporary road test waivers are still in place to allow some qualified drivers to get their regular Class C license. Read More​. ​​


Teenagers between 15 and 17 years old must go through a process called graduated licensing before receiving full driving privileges in North Carolina.

Graduated licensing involves strict requirements for teen drivers to gain the on-the-road experience necessary to drive a vehicle with no supervision and minimal restrictions.

To be eligible, an individual must be at least 15 years old and have received a Driving Eligibility Certificate and a Driver’s Education Certificate from an approved driver education course.
