The Drivers’ License Test: What To Expect

What To Expect On Your License Test

Whether you’re just getting your permit and eager to start, or are simply weeks away from your license test, you can benefit from this article.  It will help you know what to expect and be prepared for the test, so you can increase your chances of success.

The Basics

At the least, there are some fundamental building blocks you’ll be expected to know:

  • How to do a three-point turn (also called a K-Turn)
  • How and when to put on your seat belt, adjust mirrors, and make other technical preparations.
  • The appropriate speed to drive in a given condition, and how to control your speed so that you aren’t speeding or driving too slow.
  • The rules of the road, such as who goes first when, putting on your blinker to turn, and all-around etiquette.
  • Confidence on the road, parking, and backing in.

If you’ve mastered these techniques, you may be ready to get your license! The test is usually a few hours, and some of the challenges you face will be familiar if you’ve been out with an instructor before. For the most part, the instructor will just let you do your thing and not make too many comments or questions.

Don’t get nervous if you see the instructor making notes! Getting nervous can make you freeze, and the instructor often just has to check off items you’ve completed.  At the end of the test, it’s always good to ask for feedback regardless of whether you passed or not.
