COMMON REASONS FOR FAILING A ROAD TEST

  • You violated a motor vehicle law, rule, or regulation.
  • You demonstrated a lack of experience safely operating a motor vehicle.
  • You refused to follow or drove contrary to the examiner’s instructions.

Passed the test?!

If you pass the road test and have prepaid for your license, the examiner will stamp the back of your learner’s permit and it will become a temporary license, valid up to 30 days. The RMV will manufacture your new, permanent photo-image license and mail it to you. If you pass the road test and have not prepaid for your license, you must take the permit with the road test results indicated on the back to an RMV branch within 30 days. You must then pay for and obtain a temporary license while your permanent license is being manufactured. (Note: If you do not obtain a temporary license within 30 days of passing your road test, you may be required to retake the road test at your expense.) If your permanent license does not arrive in the mail within four weeks of issuance of your temporary license, please call the RMV Phone Center.
