Did you know?

Over 10% of applicants are turned away from the Driving Skills Road test site because of document and/or equipment problems. The most common actions resulting in road test failure are:

  • Turning from the wrong lane.
  • Turning left in front of oncoming traffic.
  • Turning right on a red light without stopping.
  • Two times over the speed limit by 4 mph or more.
  • Disregarding instructions or refusal to perform instructed maneuver.
  • Losing control of the vehicle causing the examiner to take evasive action or assume control of the vehicle.

 

Some tips for taking the road test:

During the test, you must:

Wear your safety belt (all occupants in vehicle must wear safety belts.)

Obey all traffic signs, signals and laws.

Complete all traffic checks by moving your head to make your search obvious to the examiner.

Keep both hands on the steering wheel (unless shifting).

Complete the test without an accident or moving violation.

Throughout the test, you will be scored on your overall performance in the following general driving behavior categories:

 Search:

Establish a pattern of searching left, right, ahead, and behind using all available mirrors and moving your head to make your traffic checks obvious to the examiner. Searching involves head and eye movements, as well as turning and looking over your shoulder to check blind spots.

Anticipate traffic, pedestrians, people entering and exiting parked vehicles and potentially hazardous situations well in advance.

Scan ahead to get the “big picture.”

 Speed and brake control:

Do not exceed the speed limit that is prescribed by a regulatory (white) sign, advisory (yellow) sign or by prevailing weather, roadway and traffic conditions.

Do not drive too slowly or too fast for traffic conditions.

Accelerate evenly and smoothly without jerking the vehicle.

Always come to a complete stop. Do not roll through stops

 Direction and space control:

Whenever you change lanes or turn, you must use your turn signal.

When turning, do not touch or cross over your lane markings or hit curbs.

When driving straight ahead, try to keep your vehicle centered within your lane without weaving outside of the lane markings.
