2014 - One of the worst DMVs in the state! They are understaffed and overworked. The person conducting the road test isn't qualified. After standing in line for 3 hours (we arrived at 6:30 a.m.), I had the opportunity to speak with other parents who had their teens taking the road test. Many of the students did not pass after 3 tries. My daughter did not pass the first time. After hearing their stories, ended up going to Birmingham and she passed with flying colors. For those who want to know know what to expect... The test consists of left and right turns. Read your manual and know the exact rules of when you should turn. One child failed because he did not allow a car to pass before he made a right turn out of the parking lot. All the parents agreed that he had plenty of time, but this did not matter. Also, be careful NOT to hit the curb (it's an odd corner ), signal, and make sure you know who has the right away, know exactly where to stop, and conduct a 3 point turn. I've been driving for over 30 years and am a safe driver. Within those years, I had one accident in a parking (black ice) and one that happened at a busy gas station which was my fault. Both of those accidents happened over 10 years ago. With that being said, I do not believe I would have passed this test. If you must go to this location, practice driving around the neighborhood, make plenty of right and left turns and practice your three point turn. Please post your experience. We came from Madison and I'm wondering if there's some resentment. I'm all for safety, but there were too many kids failing at this location.

My oldest son, who is now 28, took the exam in Athens in 2003. He passed with flying colors. My daughter had a completely different experience in 2014. Both had driving lessons and practiced before they took the exam.
