Arkansas driver’s license applicants will be able to reserve testing dates online

Arkansas State police

The Arkansas State Police says that driver’s license testing applicants will soon be able to reserve a specific date and time to take the written test.

The scheduling tool is at the moment limited to written test applicants who intend to use the Arkansas State Police Troop A or Troop L testing locations at Little Rock and Lowell.

Both sides will remain open to walk-in test applicants during the regular weekday schedule. However, test applicants are encouraged to access the online service and pick a day and time that accommodates their personal schedule.

The service is supposed to help parents and guardians who are typically left to rearrange their work schedules while accompanying their child to begin the testing process.  The objective is to reduce the long lines and delays while test applicants wait their turn to register for the written test.

Phase 1 of the online scheduling tool that includes the primary testing site in Benton and Pulaski Counties was activated Tuesday at

The other 10 testing sites at other state police highway patrol division troop headquarters will be added in phases during the coming months.

The State Police has also produced a video that’s available at the same web site to help written test applicants better prepare themselves for the test. Parents and guardians are encouraged to watch the video with their teenagers who may be considering the opportunity to take the Arkansas Driver License Written Test. The video was produced to curb an increasing failure rate among first time written test applicants. During calendar year 2019 more than 63,000 of the 111,123 written test applicants failed the test.
