The None-For-The-Road Exam, also known as the “DWI Exam” is a multiple-choice computerized test that is issued by the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division in partnership with UNM Continuing Education and the New Mexico Department of Transportation. This exam is designed to educate driver’s license applicants on the serious DWI problem in New Mexico. Additionally, this exam informs applicants about driving-while-impaired (DWI) laws and prevention. This exam is required for everyone under the age of 25, and for those who have had a previous DUI/DWI  and are applying for their:

There are a few things to know before taking your None-For-The-Road Exam. You must pass this exam before you can apply for a New Mexico Driver’s License. This test is only required if you are under the age of 25, or if you have had a previous DUI/DWI. Anyone 15 1/2 years of age and older can take this exam. Most driving school curriculums cover a DWI section that satisfies the None-For-The-Road Exam requirement. Please verify with your specific driving school if this section is included, if so then you do not have to take the exam. You simply have to bring in your certificate of completion from that driver’s education course.

The None-For-The-Road Exam is a 2 part exam. Part 1 is when you apply for the program, pay the enrollment fee, and receive study material. You are also able to take practice tests to prepare you for the official exam. Once you enroll in the program, you will be given a special code that is used to issue your official exam. Part 2 is when you bring in that special code to any of our offices. We will use that code to issue your official None-For-The-Road-Exam.

Please give yourself up to 2 hours to complete the None-For-The-Road Exam. If you wish to walk into our offices for the test, we recommend that you call ahead of time to ensure that the test station is available. Once you pass your None-For-The-Road Exam, your passing score will be saved in the MVD system for 5 years.

What if you do not pass your exam on your first try? No need to worry! You are able to re-take the test as many times as you need. Keep these simple tips in mind before taking your None-For-The Road Exam.

  • Review the study material provided with the program

  • You can use the program study material while taking your None-For-The-Road Exam

There is only 1 requirement for your None-For-The-Road Exam. You must provide:
