Driving Skills Test

The examiner may require you to demonstrate your driving ability.  If so, you must provide the vehicle to be used.  It must be properly registered and comply with vehicle safety laws, including functioning safety belts.  The vehicle may be rejected if its condition could cause harm to the examiner’s person or clothes.  The license applicant and the examiner are the only occupants allowed in the vehicle during the driving skills test.  In addition to road rules and regulations, you will be judged on the use of proper driving techniques and other important elements of safe driving, such as your general behavior and attitude.  During the driving skills test, you will not be asked to do anything that is against the law.

The following is a partial list of items on which you may be evaluated on during the driving skills test:

Driving posture
Proper use of lanes
Left and right turns
Starting and stopping
Parking on hills and between cars
Observance of traffic signs and signals
Backing
U-turns
Steering coordination
Attention at intersections

If you fail the driving skills test you will be expected to practice before taking another test.  You may take only one (1) driving skills test in a day.  Failure to pass the required tests in three (3) attempts will result in having to pay another fee.

All tests must be completed within six (6) months from the day you pay your fee.  Any person may be asked to complete a driving skills test if the examiner feels the applicant’s ability to drive may be in question.
