Taking the New Jersey Driving Test Soon? Here’s What You Need to Know

If you want to be able to shop at the best car dealerships in NJ, first you must pass obtain your driver’s license. Doing so in New Jersey requires acing a road test and written exam, but knowing what to expect can drastically help.

Perhaps you’re a prospective new driver hoping to hit the road soon. If so, let us give you some tips and advice on how to pass your New Jersey driver’s license test.

Practice, Practice, Practice
The old saying, “practice makes perfect” couldn’t be truer. Practicing your driving skills plenty before you take the test is a great way to calm your nerves and leave you feeling fully prepared and confident heading into the road test portion of your exam. Start out in empty parking lots or residential streets and work your way up to low-traffic areas and then highways.

As tough as criticism from “backseat drivers” can be at times, use anything your parents or driving instructor is telling you as constructive feedback and learn from it. Speaking of driving instructors, hiring one or taking a driver’s training course is never a bad idea. Although they’re not free, they are effective at simulating test conditions and educating new drivers on what they need to know before getting behind the wheel by themselves.

Know the Rules of the Road          
Memorizing New Jersey’s state laws and regulations for its drivers may be enough to pass the written exam portion of the driver’s license test, but it is a better idea to really understand each rule and make it a habit of following them as you practice driving.

Whether it’s passing laws, road signs, traffic signals, speed limits, safe following distance, signaling, etc., it’s all fair game on the New Jersey written driver’s license exam. Be sure to read your driver’s manual from cover to cover and study it intently. You can even take online written tests to practice.

Simulate Road Test
Studying is what will mostly help you pass the written portion of the driver’s license exam, but practicing and simulating will prepare you the most for the road test. If you can closely simulate the actual road test you’ll be taking, that is ideal.

A few things that are typically included in the road test that you’ll want to keep in mind are parallel parking, checking for oncoming traffic when pulling out of a parking space or parking lot, making complete stops, knowing how to use the emergency break, yielding at intersections lane changes, signaling, use of mirrors, maintaining speed limit, safe following distances, and more.

Test Day Tips
On the day of the test, don’t be nervous. If you’ve done all of the above, you should be fully prepared. But while you’re taking your driver’s license test, focus on the road not your instructor, don’t get hung up on mistakes, and make sure you’re using a vehicle you feel fully comfortable with.

Chrysler 300: Luxury that Excels in the Winter

If you live in New Jersey or the surrounding area, you know what harsh winter weather can look like and how difficult driving can be in the ice and snow. But winter driving can be heavily aided by owning the right vehicle to combat difficult road conditions.

And for those who want to be safe on the road during the winter but don’t want to sacrifice driving luxuriously, there’s the perfect car out there for you and you’ll be searching for the nearest Chrysler car dealership after reading this post.

The Chrysler 300 not only allows you to ride in style, it also handles treacherous road conditions and keeps you safer in the winter than other luxury vehicles of its kind.

The Chrysler 300 offers the most-advance all-wheel drive (AWD) system in its class. This luxury sedan has the power and torque to get you up icy hills and has many other benefits that make winter driving a summer breeze. The winter-driving advantages that the Chrysler 300 offers include:

Performance: You won’t find another vehicle in its class that has the type of performance provided by the Chrysler 300. The luxury sedan’s all-wheel drive system offers smooth shift transitions and incredible handling as all four wheels work together to get you where you’re going. This type of performance makes for a flawless ride in any road conditions, but you’ll appreciate it most in the winter.

Efficiency: The Chrysler 300 doesn’t always have to drive in all-wheel drive. It can seamlessly transfer between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) to adapt to any and all road conditions. The ability to transfer into RWD gives the Chrysler 300 a best-in-class combined fuel economy for AWD full-size sedans.

Traction Control: Chrysler 300s feature two pieces of technology that help keep you safe on the road during winter weather. This intelligent AWD luxury sedan has an Active Transfer Case and Axle Disconnect, which continuously monitor wheel revolutions and apply automatic brakes to a slipping tire while simultaneously adding torque to opposing tires to keep the vehicle moving forward.

Stability: When road conditions are optimal and the Chrysler 300 is in rear-wheel drive, this luxury sedan provides a stable and smooth ride. But even when the vehicle senses hazardous conditions like ice and snow and shifts into all-wheel drive mode, the Chrysler 300 offers amazing traction and sense of security to its drivers.

So don’t give up luxury or safety this winter. Purchase a Chrysler 300 to have your cake and eat it too!
