Accelerate Over to the CCIU to Receive Your Driver’s License

Downingtown, PA – The road to success begins with the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU). The CCIU has recently collaborated with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to satisfy the need for additional driver’s testing centers for Pennsylvania drivers. Now you can take your driver’s test and receive your license at multiple locations throughout Chester County.  
The CCIU has been certified by PennDOT as an approved third-party Driver Testing Center and now offers two additional on-the-road driver examination centers in Chester County: one at the Technical College High School (TCHS) Pennock’s Bridge Campus (280 Pennock’s Bridge Road, West Grove, PA 19390) and the other at the CCIU (455 Boot Road, Downingtown, PA 19335). All examiners are trained by the state of Pennsylvania to administer the driver’s test.
“I am very excited to be a part of the team that will bring additional Driver Testing Centers into our communities. These centers will open up additional options for the residents of Chester County and surrounding communities,” said Debra MacCausland, office manager of the CCIU’s Driver Testing Centers. 
The testing centers are open on Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Both locations are now accepting appointments. To schedule your driver’s test, you must request an appointment at
The fees for the driver’s testing exam are as follows: standard rate - $100; discounted rate (for drivers completing the CCIU’s Driver Education Online course and Behind-the-Wheel Training) - $75; retest rate (at our facility only) - $60.
The Driver Education Online course was developed by the CCIU and consists of online instruction taught by a state-certified teacher. Students are instructed about proper vehicle handling techniques, the consequences of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, PA laws, handling car emergencies and more. Behind-the-Wheel training consists of six hours of actual driving experience on the road with an instructor. Learn more at
