Frequently Asked Questions - Taking Your SC Driving Exam (Or Road Test)

Common mistakes include: not thoroughly practicing, hitting your brakes too harshly, performing rolling stops, missing a turn, causing an accident or driving recklessly.
If you fail the SC Driving Exam, you will not receive your license. You will be able to retake the Driving Exam, but as with the Permit Test the waiting time in between your retakes varies depending how many times you failed the exam. For example, if you have failed the test once or twice, you will have to wait a week. If you fail 3 or more times, you will have to wait 60 days before you can retake the SC Driving Exam. Don't rush retaking your SC Driving Exam. Pay attention to what your examiner indicates as your weaknesses and work upon improving your driving skills.
If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian should accompany you.
Remember to pay attention to oncoming traffic. Stay within the speed limit and leave a safe distance between yourself and other cars. Check your mirrors regularly. Always come to a complete stop and keep both hands on your steering wheel at all times.
