You are eligible to take your on-the-road test after you have completed your driver education course, had your learners permit for a minimum of nine months, and completed 60 hours worth of mentor training. One of the most common reasons future drivers fail the on-the-road test is because they are nervous. This section is designed to better prepare you for the test by helping you know what to expect. The test is broken down into 12 parts. Each part consists of a maneuver or action that must be accomplished. During each section, points are deducted for failure to perform each part of the maneuver or action. A loss of 16 points will conclude the test and result in immediate failure.
