The examiner will also check to see if the inside and outside door handle on the passenger’s door works and if a proper passenger seat is next to the driver. Headlights, tail lights, windshield wipers, and defroster also will be checked if weather or light conditions require them. Please turn off all audio systems, GPS devices and cell phones and remove objects from the dashboard and the rearview mirror. The examiner will ask you to start your vehicle. If the vehicle won’t start (no jump starting and pushing of the vehicle) or is deficient in any of the above area's the test must be rescheduled.
