Gaithersburg, White Oak MVA Branches to Open; No Road Test for Non-Commercial Drivers

The Gaithersburg and White Oak Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) branches will begin partially reopening on Monday, June 8, according to a Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) MVA statement

On Wednesday, Gov. Larry Hogan announced that Stage 2 of Maryland’s reopening will start Friday at 5 p.m., and starting June 8 some MVA offices can begin opening doors. 

The non-commercial driving test will be modified under current circumstances. There will be no road test. Drivers will be evaluated for vehicle inspection, pull-in parking, three-point turns and back-in parking. Scoring will be done from outside the car. 

Appointments are required before coming in. However, the MVA is first reaching out to customers who had their appointments canceled due to COVID-19 closures, so the Central Scheduling System is not available yet. 

As for public health measures, the MDOT MVA will ask customers health questions when they come in, and face masks are required for all employees and customers. Floor stickers will be used to accommodate social distancing.
