Cancelling your road test appointment:
Road tests may be cancelled in certain areas of the state due to bad weather. If testing is cancelled, you will receive an email to the email address provided to DMV at the time of your appointment.

What to bring
Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time.
If you don’t meet the below list of requirements, you’ll need to reschedule your appointment— reschedule your appointment now.
What to bring:
- The Road Test Appointment Confirmation Page (sent to you via email after successfully scheduling your appointment). This information can be accessed online using your PIN # at any time.
- A fully completed application for a non-commercial driver’s license (Form R-229).
- Your learner's permit. If you don’t have it, you can request a duplicate. If you don’t have the permit and cannot get a duplicate, you’ll lose your appointment and will need to reschedule the test and pay another license exam fee. (If you've lost your learner's permit, you must bring one form of acceptable identification to apply for a duplicate, and the associated fee payment.)
- A properly registered and insured vehicle (appropriate for the type of test that you are taking). Review all the vehicle requirements. The vehicle used for the road test must be mechanically safe and pass an evaluation.
- Valid motor vehicle registration certificate. Please verify that you have the current registration in the vehicle before you leave home and bring it into the office when you arrive for your test.
- Connecticut insurance card. The required proof of insurance must be in the same name as on the registration, except for leased vehicles which may be in the name of the lessee. Please verify that you have the current proof of insurance in the vehicle before you leave home and bring it into the office when you arrive for your test.
Your driver education certificate (Form EDEC) issued by a Connecticut licensed driving school will be sent electronically to the DMV after successful completion of the training course.
Note for applicants under age 18:
Your qualified trainer must be present at the DMV office and sign a form attesting that all driver education/practice driving requirements have been fulfilled.
Note for non-U.S. license holders: If you are presenting an out-of-country license in a language other than English, you need to also provide translation by one of our approved translators.
Failing the road test
If you fail your road test, you must go online to reschedule within 72 hours after your failed test. Your rescheduled test must be scheduled for at least 2 weeks after the initial test. To retake the test, you will need to pay another $40 testing fee.
Reschedule and pay for another road test. To access your PIN please refer to your confirmation emails or use the “Retrieve PIN” option on the scheduling website.
