The California Department of Motor Vehicles is extending its temporary halt to behind-the-wheel driving tests until Jan. 4.

Officials previously announced the suspension lasted through Dec. 28.

The DMV is making this decision based on the governor's stay-at-home order and for the health and safety of its customers.

Anyone with a scheduled drivers test will be notified and rescheduled to another date.

In-person vehicle testing is required for first-time driver's license holders and commercial license applicants.

New safety measures in place for behind-the-wheel tests include required face coverings, temperature checks, cracked windows for increased air circulation and seat covers.
