Good Evening, I am an International student in St.Cloud and I'm soon taking my driving test. Can anyone tell me about their experiences. What was the route and what did he instructors asked you to do?

If you are taking it soon in the snow they will probably tell you to slow down.

They will stick pretty close to the dmv, they will have you parallel park and then back 90* between some cones. It should take about 15-20 min. Make sure all your lights work

If you stop at a light be sure your bumper doesn’t cross the line. Look over your shoulder before changing lanes.

Make sure you make a complete stop at the stop signs.

of course, with most people nowadays unable to read a clock face, it will soon make this valuable tip obsolete

LOL, I hope you are joking. The correct positions are 8 - 4 or 9 - 3 and fiddling with any device would be an automatic fail. If you have a crash while holding the wheel at 10 - 2, the airbags will snap both your wrists.
