I learned to drive in NY, took lessons there also but didn't pass but was told that even if I did pass, I would have to take the permit and road test over because it would have been recently issued and not a year old.

I will be taking 4 lesson in JC just to see how driving is in Jersey.

I'm taking my road test in Lodi next Tuesday and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for me, the do's and don'ts?

You'll be tested in a large parking lot area with cones. No traffic at all. Make sure you show up in the drivers seat.

I did my road test in lodi 2 years ago, it was a piece of cake. It's a parking lot with a little obstacle course and no traffic. The part i thought was funniest/easiest part was the paralell parking, there are two traffic cones with tall flags attached to them (wouldn't it be nice if cars had those when you are REALLY trying to park???) and they were spaced so far apart I swear you could park a limo between them. The guy didn't even make me pull into the spot all the way, once he saw I was pulling in correctly he said ok thanks, you can keep going now. Not sure if the guy was going easy on me since I was older than the average test taker (most people are 16 or 17 I'm in my late 20's).

Tips: Make sure you have your seat belt on, even if you drove there and the mirrors are perfect readjust them in front of the tester, full stops, NO rolling stops! Obey the posted speed limit.

you're going to be fine!! GL
