Driving Skills Test

You are welcome to take the driving skills test as long as you have successfully passed the 30 hours of class instruction (online or in person) and 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction with The Link Driver Education Program.


Please note: Beginning January 1, 2023 you will need to be age eligible for your driver's license in order to take the driving skills test. This means you will need to be 16 and 90 days and have held your learner's permit at least 180 days before you can take your driving skills test. 


The driving skills test is taken with one of our instructors and in one of our driver ed vehicles. The test takes about 30 minutes. Students were made aware of the test expectations and practiced what the test route could be like during driving instruction times with our instructor.

The driving skills test will be in one of our driver ed cars with one of our instructors meeting at

The Link Business Office located at 2508 Western Ave in Connersville.

The test takes approximately 30 minutes. Students will need to bring the following with them to their waiver test:

               - learner's permit

               - copy of their online certificate of completion

               - behind the wheel certificate of completion that their driver ed instructor gave them the last day of driving.

​Students can also take their driving test with the BMV at no cost.
