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.
