Your examiner wants to see that you are capable of driving safely and effectively. During your CO 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. Your examiner will test you on your ability to assess and interpret traffic, your ability to adapt and respond to that traffic situation and how attentive you are.
The night before your CO Driving Exam, you should practice driving with a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older. You should make sure you get a good night's rest.
A CO Driver's License cost $21.
No. You will not be asked to parallel park on your CO Driving Exam, but you should consider learning how to parallel park because it is a useful driving skill.
You should practice and develop a number of safe driving skills. You should feel comfortable accelerating smoothly and gradually, passing through intersections safely, changing lanes effectively, coming to a complete stop at stop signs and traffic signals, parking and parallel parking, maintaining the speed limit, staying in the correct lane and more. Remember during your exam, your primary responsibility is to demonstrate to your examiner that you know how to drive safely and effectively.
Anywhere in Colorado as long as you are accompanied by either the person who signed your Affidavit of Liability and Guardianship (if you are under 16) or a licensed driver, who is 21 years old or older if you are over 16. You should begin practicing in familiar areas then progress to different areas that will test your driving knowledge and your adaptability to different driving situations.
