On the California DMV website, the online appointment system can be accessed under the "Online Services" header. Users can visit dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv, place their mouse pointer over the "Online Services" link to view a row of available options and then select "Appointments."
The online appointment system is available for scheduling appointments for driver license, identification card and vehicle registration services, including driving tests and reinstatement of driving privileges. Online appointments can be made up to 90 days in advance for all DMV offices. Appointments can be scheduled for up to three items of business. Same-day appointments are not available online or by telephone.
