OLYMPIA, Wash. - Union Gap and Sunnyside are among a handful of cities in the state that will no longer offer driving exams at DOL offices after January 1st.
The Washington Department of Licensing said more schools and training programs will be taking over driver testing next year.
Other Washington cities that will no longer offer exams at their DOL officers include Anacortes, Bremerton, Ephrata, Kelso, Moses Lake, Mount Vernon, Poulsbo, Puyallup, Spokane Valley, and White Salmon.
Drivers who pass the test go to a state office for their license. The Legislature outsourced the testing to reduce wait lines.
The Department of Licensing said they will continue to offer tests in areas that don't have driver training schools nearby.
