MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - There's a two-month wait to take a driving test in the Twin Cities.     

Minnesota Department of Public Safety spokesman Andy Skoogman says fall is a busy time for road tests because many high school students have taken the driver's education courses during the summer months.

Skoogman tells KARE-TV the department is working to reduce the wait time. He says state officials are streamlining the hiring and training process for Driver and Vehicle Services employees.

He says the state government shutdown in July also caused existing road test appointments to be canceled or delayed.
