Tips for doing your best during the driving test

You don't study for this test: Many people ask us if they should study for their comprehensive driver evaluation. The assessments that we give are looking at your visual, cognitive, and physical function. Studying is not necessary.

You're in good hands

For the in vehicle portion of the driving evaluation we use the Fitness to Drive vehicle. This is because we have a brake pedal on the instructor side and we are able to put adaptive equipment in our vehicle as needed. Don't worry! We always start in a neighborhood to make sure that you feel comfortable in our car before any "testing".
