If you are between the ages of 16 and 17½ you need your learner's permit in which you have had for at least 6 months. In addition, you will need your completion of drivers training certificate and it is a good idea to bring along your completion of drivers education certificate. It is rare but sometimes the DMV will request to see this certificate again. Furthermore, you should check your learner's permit for any special instructions the DMV might have indicated in order for you to take the road test.
**IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE** You must have an appointment to take the road test, the DMV will not accept you without one. You must provide your own vehicle, valid registration, and proof of auto insurance. The auto insurance doesn't need to be in your name, just as long as the vehicle you are driving is insured. The vehicle you provide must be in good working order. The vehicle must have current registration stickers on the license plate, turn signal lights work both in the front and back, working brake lights, windshield that allows a full unobstructed field of view, no bald tires, two rear view mirrors (one must be on the outside on the left side of the vehicle), driver's side window rolls down, a working horn, passenger door must open and close properly, glove compartment door is secured so that is will not come open during the driving test, a working emergency/parking brake, adequate brake pressure, seat belts, and a passenger seat permanently attached to the vehicle.
