Does anybody know what is tested at each location? I did not have much luck with Salem. I'm not sure what other locations do testing and what the test consists of - I'd like to practice those parts more. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure each location will test pretty much the same thing no?

When I took my test in Cherry Hill (7yrs ago) all I had to do was parallel park, drive onto the road, turn into another parking lot, do a K-turn, back onto the road, turn back into the DMV lot and then pull into a standard parking lot space. Didn't take long at all.

I got tested in Wayne (15 years ago ). You'll have to do a parallel parking job, a K-turn and then maybe drive around in a loop, or something. In my opinion, the test is a joke...I could've passed it when I was 12.

Make sure you come to a COMPLETE stop at Stop signs. Don't forget to fasten your seatbelt before you take the car out of Park.

True - AND do not go above the speed limit either.

Some locations have a closed course. This makes the test very easy. I took the test at Lodi and that was closed.

I took it in Rahway (in 1990) and it was a pretty easy closed course.

Quite a few fail for this..backing up by looking in the mirrors only.

When you backup..first look in both side mirrors before moving..then turn your head to right and look back when backing up..DON'T USE THE REAR VIEW MIRROR TO BACK UP!


If its a CDL test..you have to get out of vehicle and walk around to back to make sure all is clear and tell tester if another person was in vehicle they would get out and guide you back (aka co-worker)..most vehicles in CDL test no rear windows.

Back when I was in high school the only thing anyone failed on was the parallel parking. The rest of the test was an absolute joke. Just make sure to remember the technicalities like "checking the mirror" and buckling your seatbelt. And of course, a "full and complete" stop at stop signs and use your turn signals.

The test is robotic. It's really more a measure of the fact that you know the law rather than know how to drive. I took mine on a closed course as well at a South Jersey location. I'm pretty sure the test itself is uniform to all of the MVC locations. It's easy and definitely not something to worry about.
