A DMV driving test appointment can be scheduled in Utah online and by contacting your local DMV. Not only can a DPS online appointment be scheduled for driving tests, but for a number of other driver and identification card related services. Services in which appointments can be made include when applying for a learners permit, original drivers license or commercial drivers license as well as a renewal, replacement and name change requests for credentials and vehicle documentation.

The Utah DMV appointment system allows customers to expedite his or her application process as well as reduce the amount of time he or she would be expected to spend at the DMV. Scheduling also provides flexibility as appointments can be made several weeks in advance. Once you have scheduled an appointment, it is important to learn about the documentation that you must bring to your scheduled appointment.

Driving Test Appointments in Utah

A Utah DPS driving test appointment is one of the most common types of appointments that are scheduled in advance. It is also the driving-related service that has the strongest recommendations towards the scheduling system, as prospective drivers who appear without an appointment may have to wait a long time or potentially be turned away. This is due to the fact that driving test instructors are limited and some locations may only have a couple on staff on any given day. Without a drivers license appointment, you would need to wait until one was available.

Therefore, it is recommended that you make a DMV online appointment or schedule an appointment over the phone with your local Utah DMV office.  By doing so, you can save yourself time, hassle and avoid potential additional trips to the DMV.

How to Schedule a DMV Appointment in Utah

Now that you know the services that you can schedule a DPS appointment for, it is important to learn how to schedule your appointment with your local DMV. While appointments can be scheduled in advance of up to a few weeks, the online system does not allow you to view the available appointment dates into the following month. Available dates and times are based upon DMV hours and current availability.

When you make an appointment at a DMV, you will need to provide numerous pieces of information about yourself, including, but not limited to:

  • Your full legal name.
  • Your email address.
  • Your contact phone number.
  • Your Utah residential address.
  • Your full date of birth.

You will receive a DMV view appointment email if you submit your appointment request online. Should you ever need to request your appointment information again, you can do so online by providing your email address on by contacting the Utah DMV.

What to Bring to Your Utah DMV Appointment

When attending a UT identification card or drivers license appointment, it is important that you arrive on time and that you bring the appropriate documents needed to complete your application or driving exam. The Utah DMV requires that you provide proof of identification for any drivers license- or state identification card-related service. Documents must be provided in English or translated and certified by a translator that has been approved by the state.

If your scheduled DMV appointment is regarding the application for a new Utah drivers license, commercial drivers license or state identification card, then you must provide:

  • Proof of identity and lawful U.S status. This can be done with numerous documents, including an unexpired United States passport, a U.S birth certificate, a valid Permanent Resident card, a U.S drivers license or state identification card that is still valid and a certificate of citizenship.
  • Your Social Security card or another form that provides proof of your Social Security Number.
  • Two documents that provide proof of Utah residency, such as with a utility bill, bank statement, lease agreement, mortgage agreement, property tax notice or vehicle title.

If you have made an appointment at a DMV to renew your Utah drivers license or identification card, then you must be able to provide your current license or identification card. Additionally, you may be asked to provide proof of residency if your residential address has changed since the last issuance of your license or state identification card.

To replace a drivers license or state identification card in the event that it is lost, stolen or damaged, be prepared to provide an alternative form of proof of identity. To complete a name change request, you must have already informed the Social Security Administration (SSA) of your name change and be able to provide an approved legal document that supports the change, such as with a marriage certificate, divorce certificate or a court order approving the name change.

How to Cancel or Reschedule a DMV Appointment in Utah

You will be given a Utah DMV appointment number that corresponds with your particular appointment after submitting your initial request. You cannot reschedule or cancel an appointment DMV online, but you can contact the Utah DMV over the phone to make a change. When doing so, be sure to have your appointment number ready. If you do not have your appointment number, then you can provide the DMV representative with your full legal name and date of birth to make changes to your appointment date or time.
