Driving Appointment


Medical Written and Road Tests, Extended Driving Tests, and 3 in 3 (Three Crashes in Three Years) are provided to Sarasota County residents only and an appointment is required. Please call 941.861.8300, option 2 to schedule your test.

Road tests for a Class E – Operator License require an appointment and Sarasota County residents will be given priority (proof of residency will be required). A limited number of road test appointments are available for out-of-county residents. Before scheduling your appointment, click here to ensure that you have met all the requirements.

Click here to schedule your road test appointment at the Mid-County Office, 6100 Sawyer Loop Rd. in Sarasota, west of I-75, south of Clark Rd.

For an additional fee, Charlotte, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota County residents can contact Ault’s Driver Education Center at 941.355.4202 to schedule an appointment at one of their locations. Please note: If you take a driving test from an approved provider, you may be randomly selected by the state for a retest when you come to an office to get your driver’s license. That means you may be able to take the test again at that time or you may have to reschedule on another day. Plan at least 1 hour so you have enough time for this possibility.
