How challenging is this test?
Despite claims to the contrary, the driving exam in Washington is not very challenging. Just stay clear of enough technical blunders for roughly fifteen minutes. Very seasoned drivers have failed the exam, while some really dreadful drivers have succeeded.
Why not simply flunk the frightening ones?
We're not allowed to do that. The scoring of the test is quite straightforward; if you make a technical mistake, you lose the equivalent number of points. For instance, if you stop ON a stop line rather than behind it, you will receive a 2-point fine. No matter how much experience you have, the points are still taken away. It is fairer if we are not permitted to inject our opinions.
The biggest thing you have to face is yourself. Let yourself be relaxed to get in the most comfortable mood to drive because if you fail, don't worry, you can do it again. The worry of traffic on the road is not only your own but also many other people's, let your mind relax to conquer the examiner.
What can I anticipate from the driving test?

+Driving for 15 to 20 minutes

+It's best to come a few minutes early because the examiner won't try to fool or confuse you.
