The first time I went, my mom did not know she needed my original birth certificate and we only had a copy. I was devasted that I couldn't take it right then. We had to order one and it finally came. The test was super easy because I studied a quizlet. I recommend studying a quizlet.

I failed the first time because I didn't focus on the numbers. Focus on the numbers such as how far to park back from a fire hydrant and fire station, etc.

I went pretty late and was dreading it to start because I thought the wait was going to take forever. But when I got in there the people were very friendly and cool.

I just studied before the test and it was easy pretty much common sense along with some specific rules and regulations most people know. Passed first try, just make sure to study and take practice tests.

I have had my learner's permit for a bit now. I decided to take the driver-ed course alongside the behind-the-wheel experience. It has worked well for me so far. The permit test is not too bad as long as you study. You can search for study plans on the Internet, and those can be really helpful. Also, pay close attention to the required things to bring, If you forget something, you will not get your permit.
