If you are seeking a new license, you'll need a photo ID (or birth certificate) along with $10 for the exam fee.
If you are seeking an upgrade, you'll need a photo ID (or birth certificate), a photo copy of your current license and the $10 exam  fee. The VE team will need to keep the copy of your license so please do not bring the original. We can not accept the original. It is your responsibility to bring a copy of your license as there are no copying facilities at the exam location

The VE team recommends cash for the testing fee. Personal checks can be accepted but please be advised it could take a very long time for your check to clear your bank.

Walk-Ins are welcome but it is preferred that you make contact with one of the individuals below prior to the exam date.
