In Delaware, you can schedule a DMV driving test appointment ahead of time. That way, you avoid having to spend a large amount of time waiting in line at your local DMV office. Through the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), you can make an appointment for your driver’s test either online or by phone. It is as simple as knowing the state DMV online appointment web address or phone number as well as knowing which documents you are going to need to provide.

Before you use the DMV appointment system to schedule your Delaware driving test, you will need to know which documents you must bring with you. You will also need to know what fees apply, if any, and which payment methods you can make them. Failing to do so can prevent you from taking the driving exam, which will result in you having to reschedule the appointment for another date and time.
