You need to bring a passenger vehicle with valid registration for the drive test. The examiner will check it for the required equipment. You will have to reschedule if your vehicle does not pass the equipment check.
Equipment that must work:
- The vehicle starts under its own power;
- Turn signals (front and back);
- Brake lights;
- Passenger door opens and closes with handle from inside and outside;
- Proper, secure and reasonably clean passenger seat;
- Tires are not bald or damaged;
- Muffler has no excessive leaks or unreasonable noise;
- Display valid registration; and
- Side view or rearview mirrors.
- Nothing may obstruct the driver's or examiner's view to the front, side or rear of the vehicle.
You must show proof of insurance before a drive test. You can use:
- A valid insurance card;
- A current vehicle liability insurance policy or binder; or
- A DMV Certificate of Self-Insurance showing you as the owner of the vehicle.
If weather conditions require, your vehicle must have studded tires or traction devices, windshield wipers, headlights, taillights and a window defroster.
