PHOENIX – This week, the Arizona Department of Transportation announced that more teens are opting to take their learner’s permit test online. The Permit Test @ Home was introduced in March, 2018.
According to the Department, more tests are now being taken online than at MVD (Motor Vehicle Department) offices.
|From ADOT –
In order to take the test, parents need to establish a free account at AZ MVD Now, a service accessed through www.ServiceArizona.com. The accounts are secured through a multi-factor password process, and parents agree to proctor the test.
Once the teen passes the test, a receipt is generated and the teen and parents may go to an MVD office to confirm the results and get the actual permit.
Slightly more than 50 percent of all permit tests were taken using the Permit Test @ Home as opposed to just over 49 percent of tests taken at an MVD office, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) data for the month of November. By comparison, in November, 2018, office tests outpaced online testing by approximately 57 percent to 43 percent.
In November, 2019, the Permit Test @ Home was taken a total of 6,758 times. Statewide, MVD serves a total of approximately 7,500 office customers each day.
