We're given 3 chances to take the test! Usually people pass on the last chance or not at all!

The Driving part is strict because if you mess up on one little thing your automatically put out of the car and have failed your test.

[It might depend on who is your instructor though]

I would have to say Texas. The DPS test for driving for me was pretty tough. i only missed 1 question, but it was tough to only miss that one question.

As far as the road tests go, they are very unpredictable. You can pass in rural New York, and fail in urban Salt Lake City. The general rule is, stick to small towns. It doesn't matter if it's a small town in California. The written tests will be all the same throughout the state. These are the states that you want to stay away from. New Jersey, Vermont, Indiana. The thing with tests is, they are subject to change. New Jersey used to have a high pass rate, then they realised that the tests were too easy and that people were driving recklessly. That's when they make the test harder. A state that might be easy now, won't be next year. Any state with a graduated driving system is probably going to be hard.

Pennsylvania's is ridiculously easy. I have a family member who say all you do is drive about a half mile, turn around, and you get 3 chances to parallel park in a very large mock parking space. Younger people don't have to take drivers ed or anything else.
