Top Gear Driving School is now approved and authorized by the Department of Licensing to give the knowledge and driving tests. As of December 31, 2012 the DMV in White Salmon will no longer give the knowledge test and the skills (driving) test. This will now be done at Top Gear Driving School. This will benefit patrons who previously had to either go to White Salmon or Vancouver for testing.
This service will be available not only for beginning drivers, but for anyone needing the testing. Testing will be available by appointment only until set times are discovered that will work for the community. Testing locations will not be able to take pictures, or issue a driver's license. These can either be picked up at a DMV location, or delivered mail by the Department of Licensing.
