Summer is the perfect season to hit the road with your windows down and your favorite song on the radio. The only problem is you don’t have the ability to do so alone, because you don’t have your driver’s license yet! Luckily, MVD Express is here to help.

When to Take Your Driver’s Test

Depending on your age and experience, the requirements to take your road test and obtain your New Mexico driver’s license may differ. For example, if you are over the age of 24, you do not have to take the None for the Road educational course before obtaining your license. However, you will be required to pass both a written and a road test in order to receive your New Mexico driver’s license.

Consider taking your road test only after:

  • You understand the New Mexico driving laws.
  • You have had enough driving practice to feel comfortable.
  • You have experience driving in inclement weather and darkness.
  • You have successfully passed the written driver’s exam.

You are the only person who can judge how comfortable you are behind the wheel, therefore you need to really ask yourself if you are prepared to drive responsibly in all types of situations before scheduling the test.

How to Prepare for Your Driver’s Test

The best way to prepare for your driver’s test is to practice. A theoretical understanding of the rules of the road can only get so far, and most drivers will agree that they learned the most when they were the ones behind the wheel.

Take a licensed parent or guardian with you who you can trust to give you constructive criticism. Practice driving around local areas where you feel comfortable and work up to driving in more high-traffic areas, such as urban roads or highways. The best way to feel more comfortable is to make it a habit to drive and to make sure that you limit as many distractions as possible while you’re on the road.
