The Hillsborough County Tax Collector’s Office has launched Student Saturdays for teen drivers.
The new initiative during the month of October, aims to make the driver license testing process more convenient for Hillsborough County high school students and their parents.
The program’s launch was timed to coincide with National Teen Driver Safety Week. It allows aspiring teen drivers to take their driving skills test on the weekend, eliminating the need to miss school.
With the significant growth in the county’s population, Tax Collector Nancy Millan and her team have worked to increase staff resources and expand capacity for driving tests and driver license services to meet the demand.
The driving skills tests for teens are by appointment only and are available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Oct. 14 and Oct. 21, at the East Tampa Tax Collector’s Office, 2814 E. Hillsborough Ave., in Tampa.
Saturday tests are available only for Hillsborough County high school students who meet the eligibility requirement to take their driving tests, including a valid learner’s permit and written test completion. There also are a limited number of written testing spots available for students who want to obtain their learner’s permit.
Visit HillsTax.org/student-Saturdays to see if the student meets eligibility requirements to take the driving skills test.
Eligible candidates can book an appointment by calling 813-347-4386.
