ROAD TEST AT THE DRIVING SCHOOL

Road Test at the RMV
Face covering updateThe Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is no longer enforcing a mask mandate.Therefore, effective immediately, the use of face coverings is strongly encouraged, but optional, for examiners, applicants, and sponsors during road tests.Sufficient mask supplies exist so road test examiners may continue to offer masks to applicants and sponsors interested in wearing one for the duration of the test.

Road test vehicle update at the rmv:
All Class D learner’s permit holders applying for a Massachusetts issued driver’s license will be required to supply their own vehicle for road testing beginning on Monday, May 2, 2022. Applicants scheduled for testing through a driving school should confirm they have access to the school’s vehicle for their road test.Private passenger vehicles used for a Class D road test must meet the following requirements, (including vehicles with an ignition interlock device, and vehicles with adaptive equipment for a competency test):
Be in good working condition and be able to pass a safety check.
Have a valid registration and current inspection sticker.
Contain adequate seating accommodations next to the operator for the use of the examiner and have a rear seat for the sponsor.
Be designed to let the examiner make an emergency stop using the parking brake. If not, the vehicle cannot be used for the road test.
Any vehicle with a center console that does not have a parking brake as part of the console cannot be used.
Any vehicle that does not allow the examiner unobstructed access to the parking brake cannot be used.
