Do I have to schedule a road test?

Unlike written tests that allow for walk-ins, road tests require advance scheduling. To learn how to reserve a driving test time, visit your state's DMV Web site. You'll either be given a central reservation number, or a list of test site phone numbers. Some states, like New Jersey for example, will even allow you to book a road test time online. 

Given the time involved in taking a road test, you'll want to pass on your first try. Otherwise you'll be delayed in your quest for obtaining a drivers license. To best prepare, consider enrolling in a drivers ed course. The combination of road time and classroom training will give you the needed skills and knowledge to ace your road exam. 

You should also consider using practice tests to gauge your road acumen. You can find these tests in the back of driver manuals and online from a variety of companies.
