Before you can make a road test appointment with the DMV, you must do the following:
• Complete an approved pre-licensing safe driving course to obtain an MV-278 Pre-Licensing Course Completion Certificate, or
• Complete a high school or college driver education course to obtain an MV-285 Driver Education Certificate.
The MV-278 Certificate is valid for one year from the date issued. The MV-285 Certificate is valid for two years after the date issued.
