Driver Examination Station

Link to DMV info

The Missouri State Highway Patrol provides the driver examination portion of an individual qualifying for a Missouri Operator’s License, Chauffeur’s License, or Commercial Drivers’ License (CDL). This function is part of the Driver Examination Division; which is responsible for the individuals who administer the tests, providing areas for testing, and making sure the tests are administered fairly and professionally.


Dates and Times

Location: 711 N. Main
Days: Monday & Friday Only (Excluding Holidays)

While appointments are not necessary to take an operator’s license test, they are necessary to take a Commercial Driver’s License test. Before arriving at a Driver Examination Station an individual needs to understand what will be required and the hours of operation for that particular station.

Arrival at the test location before closing time does not guarantee that a test will be given to you. Written and driving tests are given based upon personnel availability and volume of test applicants.

Requirements to Obtain a License or Permit

The Missouri Driver License, Chapter 1

Depending on your age, whether you are obtaining a new license or permit, if you are renewing one, or if you have just moved to Missouri, the requirements to obtain a license are slightly different.

  • If you are a driver age 15 to 21, the Graduated Driver License (GDL) program applies to you. Please see the GDL section in this chapter for more information. You will need to show verification of name, date of birth, place of birth, social security number, and Missouri residential address (detailed in this chapter) to qualify.
  • If you are a Missouri driver renewing a license, you must show verification of name, date of birth, place of birth, social security number and Missouri residential address. You will also surrender your previous license and take the vision and road sign tests.
  • If you are obtaining a new Missouri license, you must show verification of name, date of birth, place of birth, social security number and Missouri residential address. You will be required to take the four-part driver examination. The four-part exam consists of a written test, vision test, road sign test, and a driving skills test.
