My 75 year-old mom has to retake the driving test this year and she is freaking out! She hasn't had a ticket or accident in years and years, but I guess they make the seniors retake the driving portion.

Does anyone know what they make the seniors do for the test? Is it a parellel parking, park uphill put on the brake kind of test or is it a shortened version?

Also, I was thinking of taking her to the Schaumburg DMV since the Elston one is a madhouse. Also, the streets aren't as busy as they are in Chicago. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

If the seniors test is the same as the one for teens, the hardest thing is a three-point turn. Parallel parking isn't part of Illinois's driving test anymore. I've never been to the Schaumburg DMV but the one in Libertyville is good. Streets are less busy there than Schaumburg too.

Schaumburg the people are kind of mean but they will pass just about anyone.
