Road Tests

A Road Test is the last step before getting a license. You should be able to drive ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ALL BY YOURSELF with NO QUESTIONS asked before you sign up for a Road Test. 
Mr. R's conducts Road Tests Monday-Saturday during daylight hours. 
The Road Test costs $70 at Mr. R's and if you fail your first test, your second test is $50. Any additional tests would be $70. Weekend tests are $75 no matter what number test it is (you do NOT get a price break on test #2 if you want to schedule on the weekend)
Mr.R's also has vehicles to rent and use on your Road Test. The cost of vehicle rental is $35

Parking Lot Layout: These are the measurements for the Basic Control Skills Test anywhere you take a Road Test in the State of Michigan. Keep in mind you will get 6 feet more than the length of YOUR CAR for the last maneuver, often referred to as 'Parallel Parking". The "Continue-lines" represent the area you must be within to constitute a valid attempt. If your car is not entirely within that area, you will be asked to continue the exercise until your car IS entirely within that area.
