You will need to register as a customer before you can schedule your knowledge test appointment.

  • Doing this in advance will speed up the process because we can begin verifying your identification right away. That means your photo card can be processed without delay once you’ve passed the test.
  • You’ll also avoid any surprises or delays that could result on the day of the test if you don’t bring the right identification.
  • To register as a customer, just visit any Autopac agent.
