What will they do on the driving test?
Examiners will not try to trick you or make you fail. They want to assess your ability to control the vehicle, obey traffic laws, and watch out for others who may not be doing either of those things.
The examiner will conduct a pre-check of the vehicle. You will need to:
- Show your hand signals
- Show them the turn, brake, and headlights and that they are operational
- Show where the defroster controls are and how to use them
- Show where the windshield wiper control is and how to use it
- Show where the hazard light control is located
- Sound the horn on the vehicle (it must be operational)
- You will be given instructions on how the test will be conducted.
- You will be taken on a designated route which will include driving in traffic and in neighborhoods.
- You will be expected to safely pull to and from the curb and back up in a straight line.
- There is no parallel parking on the test.
Common mistakes that may require you to return on another day and stand in line again.
Going to take the written test and:
- Only having one parent signature on the application
- Didn’t bring one of the required pieces of paperwork
Going to take the driving test and:
- Forgot to make an appointment
- Didn’t bring one of the required pieces of paperwork
- Insurance or registration form is out of date
- Something on the vehicle does not work or is not safe
- The windshield has a crack in it
If you had an appointment and couldn’t take the test for some of the reasons mentioned above you can…
Make another appointment (DMV’s are usually booked 15-25 days ahead).
Ask if you can return and be on stand-by. This does not mean you will be able to test later. If someone fails to show up, most DMV’s will work you in. However, some days they are too busy, short-handed, or already overbooked and cannot accommodate you.
Note: the vehicle that you use must:
- Have working turn signals and brake lights
- Have a working horn
- Have a crack-free windshield
- Have front and rear license plates (or temporary form if new or newly purchased)
- Have a working driver’s window
- Have seat belts and secure seats and doors
