Is Wayne a closed course ? When I took mine (in Lodi), they had me drive around a closed course at about 3mph. It was ridiculously easy. As long as you signal when you turn, and stop at the stop signs, you will pass (I passed even though I completely botched the parallel parking)

I'd say practice parallel parking, but don't sweat it too much if it doesn't go that well on the day.

Make sure before you light up the bong or doobie, you ask the inspector if they mind holding your beer for you.

Wayne is a closed course. The test was pretty easy. Of course, I took it there in 1977.

I took it at Wayne in 1994.

Yes, it's a closed course. Listen to elford1973--signal at every turn and come to a complete (not a rolling) stop at stop signs.

A couple of additional things:

-buckle up before you turn the engine
-make sure you have all your paperwork ready, in hand, when you first get there to check in...otherwise, they will give your major attitude if only just to psych you out.
-when you are picking out your shirt and fixing your hair that morning, just remember...it's gonna be immortalized in your driver's license photo!

Do what Peter Griffin did, show up drunk for the photo, that way when you are driving drunk, you will look like your driver's license photo and the cop will say "I guess this is how he always looks"

that is a JOKE, before the flame fest starts.

I took mine test in Wayne in 1998. I was really easy so don't worry. I believe you could do not so well on 1 or 2 things and still pass. Just like elflord I didn't do so good on the parallel parking and still passed.

One more advise... check your mirrors before turning on the car.

Word of advice for the new driver: Stay to the right and use the left lane for passing only. Please!
