Key Tips for Your DMV Driver’s License Test

Getting ready for your DMV driver’s license test or permit exam? Steer yourself successfully through the exam with the following key tips!

Driver’s License Exam Basics

A driver’s license exam is basically comprised of two parts, a written exam and a road test (think theory and practical). The exam will test your knowledge and understanding of general rules of driving and traffic laws. It is usually conducted at DMV’s local test centers. The road test is designed to gauge your driving skills and proficiency in completing basic road maneuvers. A Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) examiner will observes your skills and grade you.

Tips for Theory Test

Hit the books!

Studying thoroughly is crucial. Do it for the sake of understanding rules and laws, and not simply for passing the written knowledge test. A thorough study will boost your confidence as you approach the actual test. Here are a few hints to take you in the right direction:

Prepare — Research requirements for obtaining a driver’s license in your state and make sure you meet these requirements are complete before you step foot into your local vehicle registration office. You don’t want to be sent home because you didn’t bring all necessary documents.

Review your driver’s manual – Available online and through local DMV offices. The handbook bring all the rules of the road and safe driving practices in one place. It is basically the only booklet you need, but it doesn’t hurt to study material published online by your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles or Department of Public Safety. This applies to both novice drivers and drivers with driving experience. A recent study showed that seasoned drivers with long experience behind the wheel actually scored worst on DMV sample questions.

Practice with license or permit practice tests — Understand how the actual exam will look like. A DMV practice exam will let you review state-specific traffic laws, safe driving practices, road signs, and more. You need to take our practice tests several times to get repetition and variety. Read questions and comments carefully.

Start early – There is much to study and waiting until the last minute to start is recipe for a last minute cram-night disaster.

Rest the day before the exam — Avoid the impulse to cram some facts at the last moment. This will just add to your anxiety. Go out, have some fun, and relax. Think positive, you have done all you can and you are definitely ready for the DMV driver’s license test.

Tips for the Road Test

Theory can take you only so far, and prior experience in driving is the best preparation possible for your road test.

If you had a learner’s permit or learner’s license, you have already had supervised driving for several months. Make sure you have completed all parts of the necessary practice.

If you’re a seasoned driver, stack your skills, find out what the DMV examiner will be observing and consider where you might need to improve. Parallel parking is often a pitfall for even the most experienced drivers.

Practice in advance of the actual test, and you’ll feel more confident when taking the wheel beside the DMV examiner.

Take the Test

All it takes is a little preparation and concentration to grasp the theory and get a hang of taking the wheel besides an observer. Prepare well, take a deep breath, and walk into the exam. Take your time, it’ll turn out fine!

All the best!

Drive Sober

Impaired Driving - NHTSA Image Library

Increasing Numbers 2012

Last year, deaths in crashes involving drunk drivers increased 4.6 percent, taking 10,322 lives compared to 9,865 in 2011.

The annual Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over winter holiday crackdown on drunk and drugged driving seems more important than ever.

The Holidays

During just a few days around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, you will find more people on the roads, many attending and returning home from celebrations of one sort or another. On average, more than 300 people die in drunk-driving crashes these few days.

All leave family, friends, and others behind. Please, drive sober for your own safety and the safety of others.

Too Drunk To Drive?

Many people try to calculate their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels after drinking, just too see if they are below the legal limit or not. It is not that simple.

Many people also believe that they cannot be arrested if their BAC level is below .08. This is not true. An officer who has probable cause to suspect an impaired driver based on driving behavior may arrest or cite any driver at BACs below .08 in every State.

Remember, your perception of your own physical state and your judgment are two of the first things to go when you drink alcohol, starting already after your first drink.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Always drive sober. If you have been drinking, take public transportation, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you.

Never accept a ride with a drunk driver and never let any of your friends drive when they have been drinking.

The Worst and The Best Driver’s Manual 2013

Mississippi and Virginia Driver's Manuals

Struggling With Your Manual?

Are you struggling with your driver’s manual? Do you think it is hard to take in the information you need?

You are not alone, and you should know that some manuals are worse than others. And some are better!

What We Think You Should Expect

Your state Driver’s Manual or Handbook is the most important piece of information when preparing for a learner’s permit exam or the license knowledge test.

The manual defines what it is that you are expected to know and will be held responsible for knowing.

It must be accurate and easy to read. It should also be able to use as a reference aid with access to the individual items of information on an as-needed basis. This is usually achieved by relatively brief, self-contained sections, headings that clearly identify the content of each section, and a detailed subject index.

The use of pictures, diagrams, and other graphic displays are important and often give a more lasting impression than text.

Practice test questions in the manual surely helps when studying for your test.

The Worst 2013

Mississippi still haven’t fixed the 2011 version. It contains numerous errors, a totally incomprehensible design, and a mixture of over-simplified language and lengthy excerpts from the law. The online pdf-version is just impossible to read and is lacking many of the graphics. Other graphics unnecessarily take up a whole page. There is also a frustrating lack of answers to the practice questions.

In short, this manual gives the impression of an amateur’s work. It is simply unworthy of a state department and just as bad as it can get. Furthermore, The Mississippi Department of Public Safety did not respond to our inquiries and apparently just ignores the problem.

The Texas handbook, new in 2012, is also one of the really bad handbooks out there.

The Best 2013

Now, let us look at the best. We really like the California Handbook because of its accurate and simple language. We also like Florida’s manual, because the coverage of everything you need to know to be a safe driver. We don’t miss any information here.

New York State Driver’s Manual is also very good. We especially like the use of practice questions after each chapter.

The Winner 2013

The winner this year, however, is Virginia Driver’s Manual. Great design, easy to read, perfect use of pictures and other graphics, and just enough information.

New Parent’s Supervised Driving Program in Michigan

Parent's Driving Guide Michigan

New Program

Michigan launches a new program to help teen drivers and their parent’s better practice safe driving skills.

The program includes a new parent’s driving guide sponsored by Ford that is being distributed to parents of teen drivers at Secretary of State Offices. You can download the guide at: michigan.gov

The guide was created to address a need to improve roadway safety and teen driving behaviors nationwide.

The program also includes a mobile app that can be used to log and track driving practice hours. Teens are required to complete 50 hours of driving with a parent or guardian, including 10 hours at night, before taking a road-skills test and being allowed to drive alone.

The RoadReady app is already available in the App store and will be released to Android users in 2014.

Statistics

Statistics show that teen drivers whose parents are highly involved were 50% less likely to crash, 71% less likely to drive intoxicated, two times more likely to wear seat belts and 30% less likely to use a cell phone.

Parent’s Supervised Driving Program in Other States

The program is also available in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, Nebraska, Colorado, Idaho, Delaware, and Alaska.
