Step by Step Guide to Drivers Ed
When you are ready to take the permit test, you will just need to take all of your required documentation to the BMV and let them know you would like to take the test. You are not required to make an appointment for the test, but you do want to make sure that you do not arrive within the last hour that they are open, so for example, if they close at 5 you will want to be there before 4.
There is no cost to attempt the test, but if you do not pass, you will need to wait until the next day to try again. You can try as many times as necessary to pass the test.
Another benefit of scheduling this way is that you will be able to complete one lesson a week as recommended, allowing for time to practice and master the skills you learn during each lesson. Then, once you have completed the 6 lessons, you will be ready to go straight into the road test.
If you take the test at the BMV, you will be able to receive your license immediately after passing the test. If you test with your school, they should issue you paperwork that you can take to the BMV to trade in for your license.
