Road Test Sign-Up/Payment
STUDENTS AND/OR PARENTS, PLEASE READ!
You must be finished with your lessons by the sign-up date below!
You have to be available for both dates we ask for. We don't get a choice from the RMV and we only do one of the days. If you are not available for both days, please don't sign up! Sometimes we get offered a weekday test in the following week if they can't give us a weekend test. If you don't want to take the weekday test just tell us when we call you to set-up your test time. That way we can remove you from the RMV's list.
Also, the test can start as early as 7:00 A.M. The test takes place at our Shrewsbury office which is 415 Boston Turnpike.
You can not be signed up for another test either at the RMV or another driving school. They only allow you to book one test at a time.
We need a minimum of 20 people to make our odds better at getting a test. Due to that, the following dates may get pushed up if we don't have enough people signed up. If you don't hear from us by the date you should, please look at this page to see if the test got pushed up. Everyone automatically gets put on the next test.
We don't have enough students signed up as of January 16th to ask for a test. Therefore the January 23rd or 24th test is pushed up.
The next test we are asking for is February 13th or 14th. You have until January 31st to sign-up for the test. We should hear back from the RMV by Friday the 5th of February.
- Once we submit our list to the R.M.V., we can not add anyone to that list, so please don't call or e-mail us asking us to try.
- When taking the test with us, you must use our car, no personal cars are allowed for off-hours road tests.
- The fee paid to us does not include the R.M.V.'s normal road test fee of $35.00 and the plastic license fee of $50.00. You can pay these fees on the R.M.V.'s website before or after your test. They do not accept any payments at our test.
- The fee paid to us is for us to book your test, sponsor you, the use of our car, and allow you to test off-hours.
- If you are under 18 years old your Driver's Ed Certificate must be approved by the R.M.V. before you can book a road test. You personally have to check the R.M.V. website to look it up.
- Remember, you must also have your permit for 6 months and a day to take a test!
TO PAY FOR YOUR ROAD TEST:
Please fill out the form below and submit your payment on the next page. Please be certain you want to be on our list for the next road exam because once you sign up, you're committing yourself to that test. There will be no refunds for "no-shows" on the test date or for canceling before we hear back from the R.M.V. about the test date. Also there is a $35 fee for signing up for a test and not letting us put you on our test because you already booked a test or have an expired permit.
The process of us booking an off-hour road exam with the R.M.V. is as follows:
- On a Sunday two weeks before the test date, we submit a list of names to the R.M.V.
- Hopefully by Friday of that week they'll get back to us telling us we did or didn't get a test.
- If we do get the date we want, we call everyone to set up the time of day for them to come to Smart Start in Shrewsbury and take the actual test.
- If we don't get the date we asked for, we have to submit names again on the next Sunday, starting the process over.
- The availability of getting a test is based upon how many schools are asking for tests and how many examiners signed up for extra hours.
