With confirmed cases of COVID-19 steadily increasing around Florida, and to minimize the risk to our customer and our staff, we are following guidance from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles by canceling road tests effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Any customer with an existing appointment will be notified via the phone number or email used while making an appointment. This will remain in effect until further notice. Once road test appointments are available, an update will be posted here. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
