GREENSBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is once again allowing regular road tests for teenaged drivers.
The DMV said it will end the Contactless Road Test (CRT) program that was previously a requirement for teen drivers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, if your teen driver already scheduled a CRT, then they should proceed with the appointment. They will take the test in regular traffic conditions instead of in a parking lot.
Other 15-17 year old drivers who have had their Level 2 Limited License for at least six months can schedule an appointment. Make sure to select Teen Level 3 as the process when scheduling an appointment.
Those who have failed a road test, or whose driving privileges were suspended when their previous license expired should select Driver License – First Time for their appointment process.
The DMV will now have 100 offices open across the state instead of 28 locations.
