The Secrets to Passing the DMV Test: Part 1
Static’s show that 4 out of 5 people that take the Department of Motor Vehicles Driver’s Written Test will fail the first time they take it. This is mainly due to a lack of preparation, organization and failure to properly study and practice before taking the test. It can be very discouraging to have to continue taking the same test and failing, and yet some people do not pass even the second and third time they take the written driver’s test. Do not let this statistic worry you though, if you are well organized and prepared and you study hard you will defiantly not be one of those people that have to come back repeated times in order to obtain their license. We have gathered some great secrets to successfully completing each step of the process, including passing the final written and road tests that will assure you receive a passing grade.
Passing your Written Test through the Department of Motor Vehicles
As mentioned, the Department of Motor Vehicles driver’s test is broken into three parts; the written test, road test and a vision test. This is the way the testing process is set up regardless of whether you are applying for your standard license, Commercial Driver’s License or CDL or your Chauffeurs License. The vision test is a short evaluation given at your local Department of Motor Vehicles branch and only takes a few minutes to complete. Be sure that if you wear glasses or contacts that you have them with you the day of your testing and that you have informed the Department of Motor Vehicles that you in fact will be wearing them when you drive. Failing to do so can result in you failing the vision test or in more extreme cases the denial of your license. In any case not wearing your glasses on the road is a serious safety hazard and puts you and other driver’s in danger. Once you have passed your vision test, you will be allowed to take the written portion of your testing. There are many things that you can do in order to assure that you pass the test on the first try.
Preparing for Test Day
Be sure to use a checklist so that you bring everything you need with you the day of testing including:
Be sure to get a good night sleep the night before you test so that you will be alert and ready to pass. Eat a well balanced breakfast as well so you are ready to get your license on the first try. Get in some extra studying the night before you test as well and if possible take a practice test from DMVCheatsheets.com so that you know your areas of weakness and can study extra in these sections. Avoid distractions when testing including your cell phone. Place it on silent before you begin so that you can concentrate fully on the questions.
