My son is getting ready to take his road test and I was wondering what it is like to take it in Rome. I took mine years ago in a different place, so I don't know what to tell him in regards to what to expect.
He does not drive in Rome, and doesn't have much experience in driving in Rome. Any tips will help.
Thank you.

Trick lights that turn quickly near the VFW where the test starts... Parallel parking and three point turn... Rest is easy

Do you go on a 4 lane at all?
Do you go through a school zone?
nope

I didn't go through anything like that. Just have him remember to blinker when leaving the curb. Big points right off the bat

U don't go in any 4 lane or school zone. It's cake. U take a couple lefts then rights. Then 3 point turn, then go straight through lights. Then parallel park and then done. Its cake. Stop worryin. And u parallel park with no car behind u so it's easy as pie. Lterally it Took about 2 minutes

Always look around front, side, and back before touching the gas pedal. Probably alot of people can use that tip.

I took my car, motor cycle, and CDL, road test in Rome. You only get out on the 4 lane for the CDL road test, they want to see how you handle the shifting.

I took my first road testback in about 2001. The guy was old and cranky. He failed me bacause I was turning right and there was one of those stupid ugly old woman coming. She was goin like 15 mph and as soon as I took my turn she sped up and he failed me bacause he claimed I pulled into oncoming traffic. There are alot of stupid ugly old women driving around going slow and slamming on their brakes intentionally. Speed up abd cut them off, or better yet someone with a big truck should hit their car when they pull their bs just make sure you do it in a way so that it is their fault LMAO hahahahah EXCELLENT

It is very possible he was on the blvd. If it was a CDL road test, they take you down the blvd, to how you handle lane change, after you have done your backing up, and parallel parking down by Rome cable.

Yea ur CDL retard. He said his road test. Which is what this post is talking about is taking a regular road test in a car. If u look above the person before specified that he took his CDL and went on the blvd. This person said he just took his road test and went on the blvd, which never happens ever. So u should try thinking first before you speak.

Pulled out, made a left turn on James st .
Then made a right turn onto Bloomfield st , made a 3 pt turn, Parallel parked in front of the YMCA and then made two left turns to go back to the start of the test. I used the copper city driving school car. That was over 16 years ago though. It probably has changed since then.
