Michigan Road Test Maneuvers

The road test will last approximately 45 minutes to 90 minutes. The driving skills test always includes a vehicle component familiarization and safety inspection (not scored) and two scored test segments. Each segment must be passed in sequence. A failure of any part terminates testing. On subsequent attempts, you must start over from the beginning (vehicle inspection, off-road skills test, then on-road driving test). You will be allowed only one attempt in a 24-hour period, unless the failure is due to faulty equipment or documents.
