The Arkansas State Police plans to restore the skills testing for driver license applicants during the week of May 4-8.

The tests will be limited to applicants who use the State Police website for scheduling a skills test and receive confirmation of the test date and time. The test will also be only offered at 12 locations across the state.

The portal to the scheduler opens on May 4. Applicants should be prepared to choose one of the 12 sites where skills tests will be offered. The scheduler tool can be accessed at

The State Police substation in Texarkana is open, according to the scheduling portal.

As the coronavirus threat begins to dissipate, the locations for license testing will be limited as many of the city and county facilities used by the State Police are closed to public access.

Test applicants are to remain inside their vehicles at the open testing sites until a testing agent approaches the vehicle for further instructions. Applicants will be required to wear a face mask or covering of the nose and mouth, pass a health assessment survey, and be willing to submit to a body temperature scan. Social distancing at testing sites will be mandatory, and all of the precautionary measures were developed in conjunction with the Arkansas Department of Health.
