Prepare for your road test
What do I need to do before I take my road test?
Once you have a learner permit, you must
- obey the learner permit restrictions on where and when you may drive
- complete a 5-hour Pre-licensing Course or a high school or college Driver Education Course
- get an appropriate amount of supervised driving practice 1
If you are under age 18, you must wait at least six months from the date you received your learner permit to schedule your road test.
For more information about pre-licensing courses, see What is the Pre-Licensing Course and how do I find one?
- 1. If you have a Class DJ or MJ learner permit, you must have a minimum of 50 hours of supervised practice driving that includes at least 15 hours of driving after sunset before you take a road test. You must bring to the road test a completed Certification of Supervised Driving (MV-262) signed by your parent or guardian.
