DMV Expands Learner’s Permit Test
Appointments to Willimantic Office
WETHERSFIELD – The Department of Motor Vehicles tomorrow will begin accepting appointments, which start October 8, for adult and teen learner’s permit tests in its Willimantic Office at 1557 West Main St.
Customers Saturday can go to ct.gov/dmv and access an online scheduling system. Online appointments can also be made for the DMV’s Cheshire, Norwalk, Wethersfield and Bridgeport offices as part of this new and growing service DMV is offering to help customers avoid waiting in line.
“We are very pleased that our popular online system continues to expand and gives customers in that area of the state an online service for making an appointment for this test,” said DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey.
The appointment process will replace the Willimantic office’s current walk-in and wait for learner’s permit tests. Customers should go soon to ct.gov/dmv to book appointments because schedules fill quickly.
An overwhelming majority – 94 percent – of over 11,000 customers using DMV’s appointment system since opening in May 2012 report being “very satisfied” with the entire process.
With a home computer, portable laptop, tablet, smartphone or any device with an internet connection someone can schedule the learner’s permit knowledge test for a specific day at one of DMV’s test centers offering appointments. Computers with internet access are also in the test center offices to make an appointment or can be found at places such as a local public library for access to the internet-based system.
After entering required information, a $59 payment for the learner’s permit test must be made through a major credit card or electronic check. There are no extra charges for making an online appointment.
The appointment service is part of DMV efforts to better integrate technology that produces taxpayer savings and makes government more responsive.
