Tools To Get Your Permanent Driver’s License.
A Year Is Not That Long Away!!
You have past your Learners/Permit Test, and are starting to get ready for your final in-vehicle driving test/road test. These areas of
study/skills you must know if you want to pass your driving test/road test.
Three tools to help you pass your test and get your Permanent License.
Your Driving Test/Road Test
• You must provide a vehicle for the driving test. If you do not have a valid license, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver.
• An interpreter can be used during the driving test. No other passengers are permitted. You are expected to perform the following maneuvers on the driving test:
• Turn About (Three Point Turn) - Turn your car around in a 30’ to 40’ space.
• Shift Gears -Change gears smoothly and correctly (if your car has a manual shift transmission). Official Florida Driver’s Handbook • 2014
• Approach of Crossing -Get in the proper lane and look in each direction. Change gears smoothly and correctly (if your car has a manual shift transmission).
• Observe Right-of-Way - Allow pedestrians to cross, pull over and stop for emergency vehicles and do not enter an intersection where you will interfere with other traffic.
• Straight-In Parking - Park your vehicle inside the parking space straight-in. When properly parked, the vehicle should be centered inside the space with no part of the vehicle extending out in the traffic lane. This maneuver gives the examiner/agent the opportunity to observe your ability to: a) handle the vehicle in close quarters b) judge distance c) maintain control of the vehicle as you turn into a straight-in parking space.
• Parking on a Grade - If there is no hill on your driving test, this maneuver is simulated when the car is in the straight-in parking space or when the car is pulled over to the side of the road before the turnabout maneuver. You will be instructed to show or tell the examiner/agent what you would do if you were going to leave the vehicle parked up or down a hill, with or without a curb.
• Stop Quickly - Drive at 20 miles per hour and make a quick, safe stop when the examiner/agent instructs you.
• Backing -Back for a distance of 50 feet at a slow speed. Do not use the rear-view mirror or rear-view camera when backing. Look to the rear instead.
• Obey Stop Signs - Give the proper signal if turning, approach in the proper lane, come to a complete stop before reaching the pedestrian crosswalk*or stop line, and remain stopped until you can move safely without interfering with cross traffic or pedestrians.
* Keep in mind that most intersections contain legal crosswalks; marked or unmarked. An unmarked crosswalk is the portion of the roadway at an intersection that would connect opposite sides of the street.
• Obey Traffic Signals - Get into the proper lane and approach the light at a speed that will allow you to stop if the light should change. When you must stop, stop before the pedestrian crosswalk or stop line. When the light turns green, do not move forward until the other traffic has cleared the intersection. Give the correct signal for stopping and turning. Watch for “no turn” and “one way” signs.
• Signal and Turn - Get into the proper lane and signal your turn for the last 100 feet. You may use either hand signals or mechanical signals. Slow before reaching the crosswalk and turn into the proper lane.
• Passing - Always look ahead and behind to make sure you can pass safely. Pass on the left, unless the car ahead is about to make a left turn or is in the left turn lane on a street with more than one lane in each direction. Do not pass on the shoulder (side of the road).
• Stay in Proper Lane - Drive in the right lane except on a one-way street. Do not change lanes until you may do so safely.
• Follow at a Safe Distance - Do not follow too closely behind other cars. Keep a minimum following distance of three to four seconds with an additional second for any unusual weather or traffic conditions.
• Use Proper Posture - Keep both hands on the steering wheel and do not rest your elbow in the window. Official Florida Driver’s Handbook • 2014
• The examiner/agent will explain any mistakes you may have made after the test is completed. If you disqualify on the driving test, you will be asked to study or practice before returning for another test. You will be asked to return another day for additional tests. If you pass the examination, the examiner/agent will collect the fee and issue your license. If you surrender a valid Florida learner’s license and do not need to make changes, you are not charged additional fees for the replacement
Thank you, stay safe, stay alive!
