Can You Pass this Ridiculously Simple New Jersey Driver’s Test?
Driving in New Jersey.
Every time we get behind the wheel it's an adventure, and it's not always a pleasant one.
How many times has a fellow Jersey driver done something stupid and you think or yell out "Where did you learn to drive?!"
From navigating highways to navigating the winding backroads, driving in New Jersey requires a level of patience that can take some getting used to.
Let's talk about traffic. As one of the most densely populated states in the country, it's no surprise that New Jersey's roads can get congested, especially during rush hour.
In fact, the Turnpike, which runs from the Delaware Memorial Bridge to the George Washington Bridge, is one of the busiest highways in the country.
Oh, and there are tolls. The Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, and Atlantic City Expressway all require tolls to use, and those tolls can add up.
So, you decide to take the "backroads." These roads range from winding to narrow and sometimes both.
It is amazing how there are so many people on our roads that managed to pass a driving test.
I'm talking about both the written and behind-the-wheel exams.
According to NJ.com, just less than 300,000 would-be drivers take the written 50-question MVC test, and about 30 percent fail.
GMAC did a National Driver's test in 2011, and Jersey didn't fair too well.
Only three states scored lower than The Garden State and that was Maryland, Hawaii, and Washington D.C.
How long has it been since you took your written exam?
