I recently moved to the Cleveland area and need to get a driver's license soon. I'm under the impression that some locations are easier than others, so which BMVs would be ideal places to take the test?

ODPS | BMV | (18) Cuyahoga County Services

Here's a list of the BMVs, in case it helps answer the question. I'm new to Cleveland, so I could use some advice on which of these areas are less populated, have less drivers/traffic, etc.

It used to be 55th Street but they closed the Driving Test Section. I suggest going to Golden Gate

Garfield Hts I've heard is easy, while Parma is not. I took mine there, and they seem to be more nit picky about things. There also used to be a guy called "The Terminator" that worked there, but I think he's retired since then.

I don't know? Wherever the crappiest drivers are?

Take a test drive through greater Cleveland and see who has the worst drivers. Once you make a decision, find the nearest BMV.

Possible hot spots for crappy driving might include Beachwood(old jewish women), East Cleveland(stereo systems that are worth more than the car), and anywhere near a retirement community.

Of course, I can't speak for the west side, but that's okay because no one cares about the west side anyway.

Or you could just go to the nearest BMV. But don't let my common sense get in the way. Besides, driving around aimlessly looking for crappy drivers is a better waste of time than actually practicing for your driving test.

I heard that the one in Mayfield was the easiest on the east side. That was at least the thinking when I was going for my driving test about 10 years ago.

Golden Gate = Mayfield, right?
