COVINGTON AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY TELLS US WHAT WILL BE SCORED ON THE KENTUCKY ROAD TEST WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO OBTAIN A DRIVER’S LICENSE.
April 28, 2015
If you are getting ready to take your Kentucky road test to qualify for a driver’s license here is what you need to know:
You must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years of age. This licensed driver will not be permitted to ride with you during the road test. He must wait to drive the motor vehicle or ride with you if you do not pass the road test.
The test will consist of stops, backing, turning the car around, stopping and starting on a hill, parallel parking, intersection approaches, clutch use (if vehicle is so equipped), speed, turns, lane use, right-of-way use, and overall vehicle control.
Any collision, traffic violation, or dangerous act may result in automatic failure, and the test will not be completed. Failure to follow the Examiner's instructions two times during the test will result in being disqualified.
The applicant will be given a score sheet at the completion of the test, indicating whether he passed or failed. A minimum score of 80% out of 100% is required for passing the test.
You will be advised whether you passed or failed, but will not be provided with a numerical score. Should you not pass the road test, you must wait at least seven days before taking the test again. Practice during this time is recommended.
