  • Spend more time than you think you need to with the Virginia Drivers Manual. Make sure you’ve got a copy of the current year and go through it in detail to make sure you there are no surprises on exam day.
  • Practice like you’ll be tested. If possible drive the same car and in the same area where you’ll be tested on exam day. If you’re familiar with the vehicle, speed limits, and potential hazards you’ll be much more comfortable and less prone to making silly mistakes.
  • Once you’ve got yourself in order give your car a review the night before the test as well. You’ll only be helping yourself if you make sure the windshield and windows are clean, your mirrors adjusted, and your AC, turn signals, wipers, lights, defrost, emergency brake, horn and hazard lights are all in good working condition.
