This place sucked. DO NOT go here to take your driver's test unless you want to FAIL. The instructors are rude and unprofessional. They all seem to be in a rush and I'm just here like, "where the fuck y'all wanna go to so fast?" They seem to hate their job and never want to help you pass. FYI: If you get a lady who wears sunglasses, has bucked teeth, brunette hair, looks around to be the age of 40, and is average fat in size, then I suggest you kick her ass out of your car. She was a total bitch who was probably on her period. I just don't understand why she would choose to be a drivers instructor if she was going to be a bitch most of the time. She was rude, unprofessional, heartless, and I don't know what was going on in her mind, but she needs to get her shit together. In my honest opinion, driving instructors are supposed to be kind and professional, not bitchy, rude, mean, and unprofessional. She should get fired and find another job. She was probably racist too because if I was white, she wouldn't have acted the way she did towards me. The fuck with this bitch. Who the hell does she think she is? I don't know, but I pray for her nasty soul. Anyways, back on with the main question. SHOULD I TAKE MY ROAD TEST AT ARDEN HILL, MN? Hell to the fucking no. Try Plymouth's road test. There roads seem to be much more clearer and their routes are much more cleaner. The Arden Hill roads aren't barely visible, and they REALLY REALLY need to repaint their roads and place STOP SIGNS on the intersection areas. AND to make another area for their handicap to park at. Like why would they have their handicap parking right on the intersection road? That is just plain stupid. No wonder I couldn't see the intersection road, they really need to get their shit together. From what I've heard, a lot of people failed their drivers test at this area because in a simple sentence, it simply sucked and did no justice to help you work on what you didn't do well at. DON'T GO HERE, listen to my advice and go somewhere else, because this road test isn't worth your time. I'm sure you'll pass fine at another area.


The process and driving examination at the Arden Hills DMV is frustrating and not "driver friendly" to say the least. We (my teenage son was doing the exam) arrived at the wait-gate at 5:15 A.M. We were 5th in line. When the gate was opened at 6:00 A.M., a car several cars back, budged into the line 2 cars ahead of us (instead of waiting for the front car to go around a deserted vehicle in the line). At 7:30 A.M., the registration process began. The 3rd car in line did not move forward because the licensed driver was inside the DMV building using the restroom. Yep, you guessed it... the same car that budged earlier went around just as the licensed driver was getting back into the car. I thought that this was a pretest on what causes road-rage, but seriously, send people like this to the end of the line. No one confronted this individual, which was the civil (and safe) thing to do.
This was my son's 2nd test as he failed on the first one at this location. The examiner for the 2nd test indicated he was the brother or relative of my son's first examiner (what are the chances?). There was 1 mistake indicated on this 2nd test (turning from the wrong turnlane, which my son acknowledged as it was happening). He was told to "keep driving anyway" as it was happening, which he did. He failed the test based on this infraction. Meanwhile, I witnessed a teenage driver (concluding his test) drive up on the curb while parking the car on the side of the road nearest the DMV building. He passed the test. I am questioning the consistency of the examiners doing these tests. My daughter passed the first time at this location, and there were 3 infractions. The same number of infractions occured with my daughter's friend; she also received her license. These infractions were commuicated verbally, and not written on the test form. Is my son just an inexperienced driver who needs more practice behind the wheel? In my opinion, a majority of teen drivers could use more practice behind the wheel Are the examiners rating, passing or failing all drivers in a consistent manner? Not so sure. Thank you for reading this feedback.

I was told by my drivers instructor that at AH they pass or fail you based on whether or not they think you will be a good driver once you hit the road regardless of the number of infractions you have


Worst DMV. Slow and rude
