"State Certified Testing in a friendly and relaxed environment "

The On-the-Road Test
You must demonstrate your ability to drive safely over a predetermined route. The route will contain a variety of traffic situations including city, residential and expressway driving. At all times during the driving test, you must operate your vehicle in a safe and responsible manner, obeying all traffic laws.

Driving Skills Test Requirements
Although every driving test route may not be identical, each route will contain similar maneuvers that will “equalize” the difficulty of any route approved by the Michigan Department of State. Every route will attempt to contain each of the following maneuvers:
Left turns with varying difficulty. Right turns with varying difficulty. Intersections that involve stopping and then driving straight through. Intersections that involve driving straight through without stopping. Expressway or rural highway driving (lane changes required). Urban and residential driving (lane changes required). Collision avoidance (simulated head-on collision). Curve. Railroad crossing (actual or simulated). Turning a fan (or radio) on and off while driving.
Control Skills Test Requirements
The basic vehicle control skills test consists of a series of off-road exercises. The three required exercises you must perform in the Basic ControlSkills test are outlined below in figures 1-3.

Forward Stop Line
You must drive forward and stop your vehicle with your front bumper within 2 feet of the last “stop line” without touching or going past the stop line. You may stop only once, and you may not lean out the window to see better. You will be scored on the final position of your vehicle relative to the stop line.
Curved path backing - sight side (Y-turn) and right turn
You must back your vehicle from a 90-degree angle into a simulated driveway. Try to back into the space without touching or crossing over either side boundary (excluding mirrors). Try to finish the exercise with the rear bumper (farthest most point) of your vehicle within 2 feet of the rear boundary, not on or over the solid line between the cones. Once you have finished backing, you will drive forward and turn right out of the driveway. Try not to touch or cross over any side boundaries or hit any cones as you turn right exiting the driveway.
Curved path backing - blind side (parallel parking)
You must drive by the entrance of a parking space located on the passenger side of your vehicle. You will then back your vehicle into the space. The size of the space is determined by adding 6 feet to the length of your vehicle. You must try to finish the exercise with your vehicle positioned completely within the parking space. Your vehicle does not have to be evenly centered within the front and back boundary lines. When backing, try to perform the maneuver without touching or crossing over any boundary lines or repositioning your vehicle.
Scoring will be based on the following standards:

You are penalized each time your vehicle touches an exercise boundary.

Each encroachment counts as an error.

You will be penalized each time you reposition your vehicle to correct your path of travel. For example, in a backing maneuver, a reposition point is assessed each time you adjust your vehicle forward. Likewise, in a forward maneuver, a reposition point is assessed each time you adjust your vehicle backwards.

Each reposition will count as an error.

Final position:
The examiner will assess how your vehicle finishes each exercise within the exercise boundaries.
At the end of the basic control skills exercises, the examiner will add your total cumulative points. To pass this segment and continue with the on-road driving test, you must complete the basic control skills test with
six errors or less.
