Never Licensed: 50-question closed-book test.

When renewing your Utah driver license, if you have had more than six (6) citations in eight (8) years, have been suspended or revoked, or your license has expired for more than six (6) months, you will be required to take a 25-question open-book test.

Note: You do not need to complete a new application for written knowledge re-test visit. Bring your receipt or no-privilege document with you when you return.
