- To take the temps test at the DMV, you MUST first stop at our office to get the MV3001 drivers license application, that we have to stamp, sign and date.
What do I have to take to the DMV to receive my temps license?
- The signed, stamped and dated MV3001 form.
- Three forms of identification:
- 1. Original Birth Certificate (cannot be a photocopy) OR a Valid Passport.
- 2. Social Security Card (DMV will accept just the S.S. number, but this does not qualify for the Real ID, which will be required by MAY 2025.
- 3. One other form of identification that has the student’s name and address on it. (ex. bank statement, envelope, DNR license, pay stub, etc.)
How do I schedule my Behind-the-Wheel lessons?
- Once you have notified our office and given us both the Temps license number and issue date, you will be assigned to an instructor as soon as one becomes available. Lessons will normally be given the last 4 – 5 months before the student turns 16.
What if I have to re-schedule a BTW lesson?
- Simply call or text your BTW instructor to inform him/her of your need to re-schedule. NOTE: any cancellation not done at least 24 hours prior to your appointment will incur a $50 penalty fee. Students are encouraged to be responsible to manage their personal schedules and keep track of these appointments.
When I get my Temps license can I drive even if I haven’t started my Behind-the-Wheel lessons?
- YES! In fact, we encourage you to begin driving with a parent/guardian to develop vehicle handling skills, as well as begin applying knowledge of traffic laws/situation that are learned in class. Doing so will be to your advantage when the formal BTW lessons begin. The new state law requires parents to drive 50 hours with their student.
