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

Only you and your examiner are allowed in the vehicle during your VA Driving Exam.
You will not receive your VA Driver's License, and you will have to reschedule your Driving Exam. You will need to wait two business days, at least, before trying again. Don't rush retaking your exam. Pay attention to what your examiner has identified as your weaknesses and improve upon those before you retake your Driving Exam. If you fail the VA Driving Exam three times, you will have to retake the behind-the-wheel section of a Driver's Education course.
If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian should accompany you to your VA Driving Exam. Your parent or legal guardian's signature is required to validate that you are in good academic standing and that you have completed 45 hours of behind the wheel training. If your parent or legal guardian cannot accompany you, you should make sure that your parents have signed the necessary documents and a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older accompanies you instead.
Common mistakes that you should avoid include speeding, tailgating and forgetting to signal. Remember the purpose of your Driving Exam is to demonstrate that you know how to drive safely and effectively.
