Teen Driving Skills Testing

Before your teen driver can apply to take the driving skills test, he or she must have successfully completed Segment 2 of the driver education course, received the white Segment 2 Certificate of Completion and logged a minimum of 50 hours supervised driving which includes a minimum of 10 hours at night. Driving skills tests are provided by independent third-party testing organizations approved by the department. A link is provided below for a listing of these testing organizations. The driving skills test will consist of two parts - a basic control skills test and an on-road driving test.

It is highly recommended that parents review the Michigan Department of State's Driving Skills Test Study Guide (SOS-360) with their teens prior to scheduling a driving skills test with a third-party testing organization.
