Before the driving test

     You must present your unexpired learner license to the Certified Examiner. You will be given an opportunity to ask all your questions before your driving test begins. Once the test starts, the Certified Examiner is not permitted to engage in general conversation. Also, you will be required to present certain documents to the instructor prior to your test.

during the road skills test

     No pets or unauthorized passengers are allowed in the vehicle during the test. The test takes about 20 minutes. The goal of the driving test is to determine your ability to safely operate a vehicle and obey traffic laws. You will be graded on your ability to demonstrate the following maneuvers on your road test:

• Backing in a straight line

• Parallel parking

• Approaching intersections

• Turning

• Stopping in regular traffic conditions

• Controlling the vehicle

• Observing traffic

• Maintaining vehicle position (turning, stopping, etc.)

• Using signals

If at any time a dangerous or illegal maneuver is performed, the driving test will be immediately stopped and will result in an automatic failure.

after the road skills test

     You will be informed if you passed or failed the test, and you will receive detailed feedback on the areas where you did well and the areas where you need to improve. If you do not pass the driving test, we will hold you paperwork in our office, and you can attempt the test again as soon as you feel that you are ready. You have 90 days to re-test and ALL re-tests will incur a $30.00 fee.
