The Missouri Highway Patrol will continue to provide written driver exams for those seeking to get their driver’s license, but the road tests have been suspended. For those that are planning to take the written test, they ask for your cooperation.
Colonel Eric T. Olson, Superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, requests you refrain from taking a written driver examination if:
- you, a member of your household, a family member, or other personal acquaintance, have been diagnosed with COVID-19;
- you have had contact with any person diagnosed with, or suspected of having, COVID-19;
- a medical professional, hospital staff member, or other health agency representative has asked you to self-quarantine; or
- you have an undiagnosed fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptom associated with COVID-19 or another upper respiratory infection.
If you are unsure about whether you meet any of these criteria, please postpone seeking a driver examination and return at a later date.
This request is based on the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that are designed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
