Scheduling an Appointment for a Written Test

To schedule an appointment for the written portion of the drivers' exam, contact the customer support unit (345) 945-8344 or email DvdlExamBookings@gov.ky.

You may also visit any of our locations and book an appointment date and time, bearing in mind they are offered on a first come, first served basis.

A Licensing Officer or Customer Support Unit will inform you of the appointment times available, and can book a time that best fits your schedule.

Persons can book both the written and road tests simultaneously within a 4 week period. However, you must pass the written test first within 4 weeks in order to not lose this available road test date.

An examination fee of CI$25.00 will be charged at the time of you booking the appointment. (Remember to bring along a valid photo I.D for proof of age and identity, e.g. a passport). (Written Exam Form)

If necessary, you may cancel your appointment, however, you will only be refunded if your appointment is cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.

Your knowledge of the relevant Traffic Act & Traffic Regulations will determine whether you are successful in passing the written exam. Familiarize yourself with all the traffic signs depicted in the official Road Code Booklet 2012 Edition.
