Intersections

As you approach an intersection:

  • Check traffic thoroughly in all directions.
  • Decelerate gently.
  • Brake smoothly and, if necessary, change gears.
  • If necessary, come to a complete stop (no coasting) behind any stop signs, signals, sidewalks or stop lines maintaining a safe gap behind any vehicle in front of you.
  • Your vehicle must not roll forward or backward.

When driving through an intersection:

  • Check traffic thoroughly in all directions.
  • Decelerate and yield to any pedestrians and traffic in the intersection.
  • Do not change lanes while proceeding through the intersection.
  • Keep both hands on the wheel.

Once through the intersection:

  • Continue checking mirrors and traffic.
  • Accelerate smoothly and change gears as necessary.

Urban/Rural Straight

During this part of the test, you are expected to make regular traffic checks and maintain a safe following distance. Your vehicle should be centered in the proper lane (right-most lane), and you should keep up with the flow of traffic but not exceed the posted speed limit.

Lane Changes

During multiple lane portions of the test, you will be asked to change lanes to the left and then back to the right. You should make the necessary traffic checks first and then use proper signals and smoothly change lanes when it is safe to do so.

Expressway

  • Check traffic.
  • Use proper signals.
  • Merge smoothly into the proper lane of traffic.

Once on the expressway:

  • Maintain proper lane positioning, vehicle spacing and vehicle speed.
  • Continue to check traffic thoroughly in all directions.

When exiting the expressway:

  • Make necessary traffic checks.
  • Use proper signals.
  • Decelerate smoothly in the exit lane.
  • Once on the exit ramp, you must continue to decelerate within the lane markings and maintain adequate spacing between your vehicle and other vehicles.

Stop/Start

For this maneuver, you will be asked to pull your vehicle over to the side of the road and stop as if you were going to get out and check something on your vehicle. You must check traffic thoroughly in all directions and move to the rightmost lane or shoulder of the road.

As you prepare for the stop:

  • Check traffic.
  • Activate your right-turn signal.
  • Decelerate smoothly, brake evenly and change gears as necessary.
  • Bring your vehicle to a full stop without coasting.

Once stopped:

  • Vehicle must be parallel to the curb or shoulder of the road and safely out of the traffic flow.
  • Vehicle should not be blocking driveways, fire hydrants, intersections, signs, etc.
  • Cancel your turn signal.
  • Activate your four-way emergency flashers.
  • Apply the parking brake.
  • Move the gear shift to “neutral” or “park.”
  • Remove your feet from the brake and clutch pedals.

When instructed to resume:

  • Check traffic and your mirrors thoroughly in all directions.
  • Turn off your four-way flashers.
  • Activate the left-turn signal.
  • When traffic permits, you should release the parking brake and pull straight ahead.
  • Do not turn the wheel before your vehicle moves.
  • Check traffic from all directions, especially to the left.
  • Steer and accelerate smoothly into the proper lane when safe to do so.
