The objective of the road test is to test permit holders on their ability to operate a vehicle safely on the road and to demonstrate a proper understanding of NJ road laws. The road test can only be taken after the knowledge and vision tests have been successfully completed at a NJ driver testing center (some permit holders will be required to practice supervised driving for at least 3-6 months, depending on the age of the permit holder).
On the day of your road test, you will be accompanied by a Safety Specialist (Examiner) that will watch you drive on a off-road testing area or on a public road course. The test will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Learn more about the road test.
How to schedule a NJ road test?
Scheduling your NJ road test is very simple. Just refer to the New Jersey MVC Road Test Scheduling System page. There you will be asked to type in your driver's license number and the permit validation number. The driver's license number begins with first letter of your last name followed by 14 digits. The permit validation number is usually handwritten number made of 5 digits.
After filling in the prompts you will be redirected to page with 3 of the nearest testing centers to you. If you live in Jersey City the testing locations will most likely be Newark DMV, Lodi DMV, and Rahway DMV.
