There are a few things to know before taking your New Mexico Road Exam. You must pass this exam before you can apply for a First-Time Driver’s License or a Provisional Driver’s License. This test is not required if you have a current out-of-state driver’s license or if you will be surrendering your out-of-country driver’s license.

Keep these simple tips in mind before taking your New Mexico Road Exam.

  • Practice your driving skills beforehand. You can contact the office where you will be taking your exam for a description of the driving route.
  • Get plenty of rest before your test.
  • Arrive on time for your exam.

MVD Now offers the road exam but does not provide testing vehicles. You will need to have a vehicle present on the day of your exam. In the next section, we will go over the requirements for the testing vehicle and the potential documents that you will require. 

Road Test


There are very few requirements for your Road Exam and they will vary depending on your scenario. Let’s go over a few of these:

  • You must be at least 15 years old to take your road exam.
  • If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must be present in our office. (parent or guardian will not accompany you on the road exam)

This third requirement only applies if you do not have a current New Mexico ID or Driving Permit.

  • You will need to provide 1 proof of identity, which allow us to create an MVD profile and save your test score in the MVD system.

Providing us with 1 proof of identity will help us input your First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Date Of Birth, and/or Social Security Number correctly. You can use the same proof of identity that you plan on using when applying for your Driver’s License.


MVD Now does not provide a testing vehicle. Please go through this checklist to ensure that your vehicle meets the necessary requirements for the road exam.

  • The vehicle must have current (not expired or suspended) registration and insurance.
  • The vehicle must be mechanically operational and safe to operate (at MVD Now Agents’ discretion)
  • All vehicle safety equipment must be functional and undamaged. (seatbelts, mirrors, turn signals, headlights, brake lights, horn, breaks, etc.)
  • The vehicle windshield and windows must be free of any cracks.


Road Exam routes vary depending on location. You can contact or visit the office where you will take your exam to obtain information on the testing route. Every route will include:

  • A straightaway of at least four blocks at the start
  • At least two right turns
  • At least two left turns
  • At least one intersection controlled by traffic lights or signals
  • At least one intersection controlled by stop signs

There are two ways you can schedule an appointment. You can call us at 505-341-2MVD and we can schedule your appointment and also verify your documents over the phone. You also have the option of scheduling your own appointment through our online scheduler. If you schedule online, one of our MVD agents will call you to verify your documents and vehicle status before your appointment date. This will ensure that you bring all the necessary documents and prevents the dreaded “multiple trip” headache.

When you arrive at any of our offices, you will be greeted by a friendly MVD agent at the front door. They will help you check in for your appointment, verify your documents, and answer any questions that you may have. One of our other MVD agents will promptly assist you, collect payment, and provide the road exam. Once completed and passed, you can apply for your Driver’s License or Provisional on the spot! MVD Now also partners with local charities throughout the year. Currently, we are working with Make-A-Wish New Mexico. You have the option of rounding your MVD total to the nearest dollar or donating any other amount to this great foundation.
