What to Expect on Colorado Driver's License Test

The Colorado driver license test, and test route, is set forth by the state. The state driving test evaluates over 100 items that measure your skill and knowledge of legal and safe driving practices. The drive test covers practical driving skills and abilities and is designed to ensure individuals understand how to drive motor vehicles safely. 

If you take a reputable drivers ed course or practice with a skilled supervisor, your instructor should do a good job preparing you for what the state driving test will involve. Don’t be afraid to ask your driving instructor to clarify anything before your test begins. 

The skills measured on the drive test will be an assessment of all three of the following categories: 


The ability to perceive characteristics of the many highway traffic environments in a way that permits the safe operation of motor vehicles, e.g. judging gaps or identifying hazards. 


The ability to manipulate controls in order to maneuver the vehicle, e.g. ability to rotate the steering wheel in relation to the motion of the vehicle and intended path when turning a corner. 


The ability to focus and shift attention, e.g. to monitor traffic ahead and the side in a merge.
Your drive test score will be based on how well you perform the following maneuvers: 

    • Left and right turns 

    • Stopping at intersections  

    • Through intersections 

    • Lane changes in traffic 

    • General driving behavior 

    • Merging into and leaving traffic

Additionally, these specific maneuvers are graded factors associated with the drive test performance requirements:

Lane selection, Lane management, Use of Turn Signals, Speed Control, Stopping, Acceleration, Searching/Scanning, General Driving Behavior: Steering, braking, acceleration, searching, lane usage, and obeying all traffic laws, signs and signals.

To learn more about Colorado drive test performance requirements, view page 1-2 of the Colorado Driver Handbook.
