Large-scale event will offer over 175 tests in May
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) will be offering a large-scale driver knowledge test event by appointment at Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) in Mount Laurel on Tuesday, May 17.
Appointments can only be scheduled online at NJMVC.gov. Click on "Make an Appointment", then click on "Knowledge Test," and then once again click on "Make an Appointment." Then, scroll all the way down to "Other" and choose "Non-CDL Knowledge Test- Rowan College".
No applicants should come to the test location unless they already have an appointment.
RCBC is providing computer labs where NJMVC personnel will be proctoring over 175 knowledge tests. Driver knowledge tests, also referred to as written knowledge tests, are conducted on computers and offered in more than a dozen languages.
The NJMVC also offered the testing event at Rowan College at Burlington County in October. At the time, State Senator Troy Singleton, who represents Mount Laurel in the Legislature, said that the event "will provide potential drivers with greater access, thereby allowing them to be one step closer to getting their license. I appreciate that the MVC listened to our concerns and worked in partnership with our office and RCBC to bring this initiative to Burlington County to help meet the demand.”
Passing a knowledge test is one of several required steps in the state’s Graduated Driver License (GDL) program, which is outlined in detail at the NJMVC website.
Applicants for a New Jersey driver license must first acquire a permit before they can schedule a knowledge test appointment.
Applicants also are strongly encouraged to study the New Jersey Driver Manual before taking a driver knowledge test. In recent months, over 40% percent of applicants have failed the knowledge test in New Jersey.
