If you fail the MD Driving Exam, you will not receive your MD Driver's License. You will be able to retake the test as early as the next business day. However, you should not rush retaking the MD Driving Exam after you have failed. You should pay attention to what your examiner indicates as your weaknesses, and you should work upon improving your weaknesses. If you fail your Driving Exam a second time, the waiting period increases to one week.
Your examiner wants to see that you are capable of driving safely and effectively. During your MD Driving Exam, you want to make sure that you are not driving too quickly or too slowly; you want to accelerate smoothly and gradually. Obey all stop signs and traffic signals, do not tailgate other vehicles and stay in the correct lane. You should also know what various street signs and traffic signals indicate to drivers on the road.
You should avoid driving dangerously, driving too quickly, hitting other objects, forgetting to signal, rolling stops and parking incorrectly. Always maintain good posture and signal well in advance. Additionally, during the maneuverability test, you should be extra careful and avoid hitting the bumpers or miscalculating the correct stopping distance. You will automatically fail if you knock down a marker during the maneuverability test.
