Here are some helpful hinits to get you through the test:

  • The day of your driver’s test, be sure to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
  • Make sure the insurance card and registration card for the vehicle you’re taking the test in are accurate and up-to-date.
  • Make sure the inspection of the vehicle is up-to-date.
  • Check and double-check that all equipment works on your vehicle – even a single light bulb out can cause you to fail the exam.
  • Make sure the person who accompanies you is over the age of 21 and has a valid PA license.
  • If you are under 18 and your parent isn’t accompanying you, you’ll need a signed and notarized copy of PennDOT Form 180-C.
  • The PennDOT exam tests students in three primary areas: precision vehicle control, road rules knowledge and defensive driving techniques. Our training curriculum addresses and reinforces each lesson, preparing students well for the actual test.

Here are some common reasons why people fail the exam:

  • Inability to operate any vehicle controls
  • Violating any traffic laws (say, failing to stop properly at a Stop sign)
  • Driving dangerously or recklessly
  • Making errors in safe driving practices
  • Failing to follow instructions given by an examiner
  • Causing a crash (yeah, sort of a no-brainer)
  • Not using your turn signals properly
