What is a driver’s license?

A driver’s license is, as the name implies, a document that allows U.S. citizens to drive throughout the country. The driver must apply for his or her driver’s license in the State where he or she resides, but it will be valid for driving throughout the United States.

What is the driving test like?

In order to apply for your driver’s license at the DMV, you must first pass the driving test, for which you must prepare beforehand if you do not want to fail. This test consists of two parts.

On the one hand, the written test, where you will be given around 40 or 50 multiple-choice questions. If there are 50 questions, you must have at least 40 correct answers, otherwise, you will not be able to pass to the next stage: the practical exam.

In this part of the exam, you will have to demonstrate your driving skills while driving with a DMV examiner in the passenger seat, who will take note of your movements and ask you to perform different maneuvers in order to give you your driver’s license (if you pass both instances).

Who cannot obtain a license?

Persons who are ineligible for a driver’s license are generally those who meet any of the following:

  • Persons under 18 years of age who have not signed a parent, guardian or custodian consent form.
  • Under 18 years of age who have not passed a driver’s education course.
  • Under the age required to obtain a specific license or endorsement.
  • Persons addicted to alcohol or narcotics.
  • Persons who can’t prove that they are legally residing in the country.
  • Persons who have a suspended license.
  • Not a bona fide citizen.
  • Do not understand the traffic signs.
  • Physically or mentally unable to drive a vehicle responsibly.
  • If the personal information provided does not coincide with that of other entities.

Why did I fail the exam?

There are many mistakes you can make during the driving license test. While it may depend on what the examiner sees when you drive the car in the practice test, you can also fail the first part of the test (theory).

Among so many automatic failures that will leave you without your driver’s license and send you straight home, we can distinguish the most serious ones, which are the following:

  • Not understanding the vehicle from the beginning.
  • Not looking around when maneuvering.
  • Avoiding traffic signs.
  • Double-queuing.
  • Demonstrations of lack of safety.
  • Causing an accident.
  • Unsafe conditions.
  • Not respecting the speed limit.
  • Not knowing how to interpret traffic conditions.
  • Aggressive driving.

REMINDER: These are just some of the many failures for which you can fail the exam.
