About your road test

If a road test is required, you may drive a test route that has a variety of traffic situations. An examiner will ride with you in your vehicle and give you directions to follow. You will be observed and graded on specific actions and on your general ability to operate the vehicle safely.

Parking test: Before going out on the road, you will be required to pass a parking test. Successful completion of a three-point turn is required at all MVD offices that offer road tests, with the exception of Coolidge, Flagstaff, Holbrook, Nogales, Payson, Show Low, Tempe and Winslow, which require parallel parking. 


Road tests may be suspended due to extreme weather or safety conditions.
