Secretary of State
In Michigan, driving skills test services are provided entirely by a privatized driver testing program. This program utilizes a statewide network of approved public and private driver testing businesses that employ examiners authorized by the Department to conduct driver skills tests.
Prior to scheduling a skills test, you must obtain either Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP) or Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) from a Secretary of State office. The Secretary of State Branch Office Locator will help you find a branch in your community.
The Driving Skills Testing Locator provides information about driver testing businesses statewide. To view driver testing businesses in your area, click on the desired region of the Michigan map. Next, click on the appropriate county or counties to see where skills testing services are offered in your location. (Not all counties have approved driver testing sites.)
Be sure to inquire about the driver testing business fees, methods of payment and policies for refunds, cancellations or retests. The individual business practices of each driver testing business may vary.
Before taking your driving skills test, be sure to review the driving skills test administration requirements and study the driving skills test standards in the appropriate driving skills test study guide below:
