Road Skills Test

Eligibility

By completing both the class and in-car instruction, you are eligible for the state road skills test. We must have the completion certificate on file if the online class was not completed by CIESC.

Students must be at least 15 years and six months old to take the test. The fee for this service is $40. The test will be given in a CIESC vehicle. The pick-up and drop-off will be from one of our member high schools. Tests are not administered in all areas. Available pick up and drop off locations will be available during the payment process. Test locations may change without notice.

The test with CIESC will take the place of the test administered by the license branch.

Scheduling

Students must first enroll in the road skills test service online. Your student should have a DriverEdSafety.com username and password and completed both class and in-car lessons with CIESC.

Please do not create a new account. If you are having troubles logging in or do not have an online account, please contact us for directions on how to request this test.

The scheduling of the test will be arranged by the assigned road test examiner. You will receive an email with the contact information of the assigned examiner after your payment is processed, up to 2 business days. Please note: After payment, it may take up to 7-10 business days before the test will be scheduled with the instructor.

Plan Ahead

Before you schedule the test with CIESC, do a practice test with your student.

    • The parent takes a 20 minute ride where they supply only directions as where to go.
    • No coaching should take place. This may include streets and routes unfamiliar to the student.
    • It should include most driving tasks: roundabouts, left and right stoplight turns, merging, lane changes, stop signs, and parallel parking. Left turns on solid green lights need to be practiced, fully understood, and competency demonstrated.
    • If the drive can be done without the student asking for clarification or help, and the parent does not feel compelled to give coaching help for fear of a crash, then they may be ready.
    • If verbal coaching never stops, the clarifying questions never stop, and the student never demonstrates that they can really make correct driving decisions on their own. Additional practice is needed.
