Exam scores will be entered into the DOL database within 24 hours. Applicants must pass our knowledge and driving test with a minimum score of 80% on each test respectively. You will have to visit a DOL office to apply for your drivers's license. Passing the driving test does not  guarantee an applicant will be issued a drivers license.


If you received a letter from DOL to take an exam due to a physical, mental, visual or medical issue, you must take the test at a DOL office. Failure to disclose this information prior to testing will result in your test not being honored at DOL and no refunds will be issued.


Pursuant to RCW 46.20.720, a driver convicted of an alcohol offense may be required to have an ignition interlock device (IID). The applicant must take the skills exam in the vehicle using the IID.
