Frequently asked questions: How far in advance can customers make appointments?


  • 30 calendar days are available for appointments.

  • Each day after midnight another date in the future will open.

  • Dates greater than 30 days will be grayed out until they open.

  • If a date is grayed out it is either completely booked or it is greater than 30 days and has not yet opened up for appointments.

    Please do not double book appointments. Multiple appointments will be cancelled. You can only schedule 1 appointment in the system at a time, which must be in your name only. If you need to change an appointment you must cancel the existing appointment first.


    Please note: Services are limited to Lake County residents only. Your address and name will be verified upon arrival. We regret we will not be able to honor appointments made by non-Lake County residents or in the name of another person.



    Need written testing sooner than what's available? If you are under 18 years old, take written testing from the comfort of your home through a
    third party provider. Note: Per Florida Statute 322.56(3)(b) and (e), a customer who takes (and passes) the Class E Knowledge or Skills Exam through an Authorized Third Party Administrator may be randomly selected for a mandatory re-test without prior notice. After a re-test with a passing score is completed in the tax collector office, the driver license will be issued. A failed mandatory re-test will require a re-exam fee be collected at the next exam attempt.


    Need a Driving Skills (Driving Test) sooner than what's available? Visit a third party provider. The road test is now offered through private providers on weekends, after hours, and during regular business hours (for Class E Road Test). Visit the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for details and restrictions.
