How Do I Take the Driver’s Road Test at Cantor’s Driving School?

Of course, taking the driver’s exam road test with Cantor’s Driving School has all the same legal and documentation requirements that PennDOT dictates. As a PennDOT Certified 3rd Party Testing Center we are required to follow all of the same regulations and guidelines as the Pennsylvania Driver’s License Centers. These include:

  • Only a person with a valid Pennsylvania learner’s permit can take the road test.
  • If under 18 years of age, make sure 6 months have passed since the issued date on your learner’s permit. Tests cannot be given unless it has been at least 6 months since the learner’s permit was issued.
  • If under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must accompany the student to the road test and sign the Parent Or Guardian Certification form (DL180C Form) in person. This form attests that the student driver has completed the required driving experience prior to taking the test.
  • There is no waiting period if you are over 18 and have a valid learner’s permit.
  • All road tests are given by Cantor’s PennDOT Certified Examiners.
  • All road test routes are PennDOT approved. Every driver’s skills test route has the same minimum required components.
  • Required Maneuvers: Parallel parking will be tested before going on the public roadway. The applicant’s skills are assessed while performing at least two right turns and at least two left turns while on the road. The applicant must also drive through and abide by at least one traffic control device, such as a stop sign or traffic signal, and one speed zone change.
  • Skills Test Scoring: The skills test is scored according to PennDOT’s regulation point system. This system serves as the measure in determining whether an applicant is qualified to receive a PA Driver’s License and whether the applicant can continue building skills on their own.
