One of the most frequent questions we hear regarding the road skills test is “what will I be tested on?”.
First things first, it is important to remember that the road skills test is not required when you get your Florida learners permit or restricted license. When you get you learners permit you are required to take a drug and alcohol traffic education course and a written DMV test. Both can be completed online.
An operators license is the Florida drivers license you get when you are ready to drive on your own – either after having a learners permit for a year or as an adult over 18. To get your operator’s license you will take a behind the wheel test and perform specific maneuvers. Note that you must bring your own car and it must be in good running condition.
Below is a list of the maneuvers you will have to perform in Florida driving test:
Turn Around – Three Point Turn
Our instructors teach you how to turn you car around from one direction to another in a 30 to 40 foot area. This is most commonly known as a three point turn. We help train you for awareness and precision for this maneuver.
Shifting Gears Properly
If you have a manual shift car, you must be able to demonstrate that you can shift smoothly during the road test.
Parking in a Parking Lot
Demonstrate that you can park you car in a straight in parking spot. When you park the car, you should be centered between the line in the parking spot. In Florida there is no test on parallel parking but we still recommend that all drivers learn this skill.
Stop Your Vehicle Quickly
When you are driving at 20 MPH you will be expected stop quickly and safely when the examiner asks you to stop the car.
You will be asked to backup for roughly 50 feet at a slow speed. You should turn your head and look to the rear not use the rear view mirror or a camera.
You will be expected to come to a complete stop and use your turn signals to indicate if you are turning. Then you are expected to proceed into the intersection only when it is safe.
Signal and Turn
Get into the correct lane and signal that you are turning for 100 feet before you turn.
Stay in the Correct Lane
Drive in the right lane except on a one-way street. Only change lanes if it is safe.
