The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is extending its temporary suspension of behind-the-wheel driving tests until at least Jan. 11.

This adds a week to the prior suspension of driving tests.

The California DMV stated Wednesday that the suspension is happening for the health and safety of customers and employees during the ongoing state-wide surge in COVID-19 cases.

If you made an appointment before Jan. 11, you will be notified of the postponement and will automatically be rescheduled for a later date.

The temporary suspension includes commercial and noncommercial license tests but does not apply to motorcycle drive tests.

DMV offices are still open to the public but the DMV encourages all customers to use its online services at
