In Idaho, the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is responsible for all driving-related tasks. The Idaho DMV has driver’s license offices and County Assessor’s offices, as well as designated test sites. You need to go to the office that corresponds with your needs.

County Assessor’s Office
The County Assessor’s Office handles registrations, titles, and license plates. Go to this office for new registrations, titles, and plates, as well as renewals.
Skills Test Sites
If you need to take a Class D (Operator), CDL, or motorcycle skills test, you must go to a recognized test location. Skills test locations are available across the state.
