  Arkansans who are about to begin the process of obtaining their driver’s license will soon be able to reserve a specific date and time to take the written test.  The scheduling tool is currently 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.

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

  The service is expected to help parents and guardians who are typically left to rearrange their work schedules while accompanying a son or daughter 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.

  The first phase of the online scheduling tool that includes the primary testing site in Benton and Pulaski Counties was activated today at www.asp.arkansas.gov  The additional 10 testing sites at other Arkansas State Police Highway Patrol Division Troop Headquarters will be added in phases during the coming months.

A listing of all driver license testing sites is available at:

 The Arkansas 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 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
