Arkansas State Police plan to restore skills testing for driver's license applicants this week, according to a release from the agency.
Tests will be limited to applicants who use the state police web site for scheduling a skills test and receive confirmation of a test date and time. The tests will be offered at only 12 locations across Arkansas.
The web site scheduler for skills tests will be opened to applicants today. Applicants should be prepared to choose one of the 12 sites where the skills tests will be offered. The scheduler tool can be accessed at www.ark.org/asp_driver_scheduler/.
Arkansas State Police implemented precautionary measures March 18 in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus with temporary and limited adjustments in Class D driver license testing procedures.
Class D skills test applicants will be required to remain inside their vehicle at the open testing sites until a testing agent approaches the vehicle with further instructions.
Anyone at a state police facility for purposes of being administered any form of a driver license test (Class D written or skills and commercial driver license) also will be required to wear an appropriate face mask that covers both the mouth and nose, pass a health assessment survey and be willing to submit to a body temperature scan. Social distancing practices will be mandatory at all testing sites.
