Tax Collector to Resume Driving Skills Exams at Marcus Pointe Office
Scott Lunsford, Escambia County Tax Collector, announces that driving tests for new drivers will transition to the Marcus Pointe office, located at 6451 North “W” Street, Pensacola, Florida, on June 21, 2021. Driving tests have been administered at an outdoor range in downtown Pensacola since April of 2020 in order to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 for the public and for staff.
For new drivers, an appointment is not required. The queue for driving tests will be open at the Marcus Pointe location from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The virtual queue is available by choosing “Join the Line” at EscambiaTaxCollector.com. Once all available openings have been filled, the line will close for the day. A face covering will be required for driving exams.
Driving tests resulting from a medical review or multiple crashes will be administered at the Warrington office, located at 4051 Barrancas Avenue, Suite A, Pensacola, Florida. Driving exams for medical reviews or multiple crashes will require an appointment. To schedule an appointment for a medical or crash related driving test, email ectc@EscambiaTaxCollector.com.
