Rather than waiting potentially weeks or months to do your driver’s test at your local DMV, why not take a quicker route? With third-party driving tests, you can cut down on wait time and complete your driver’s test in an environment you might be more familiar with and comfortable with. How does it work?
Keep reading, we’ll introduce you to third-party testing, how it works, and how you can get this as an option in Pennsylvania.
What Is a Third-Party Driving Test?
Third-party testers are companies that have been certified by PennDOT to administer the Class C non-commercial driving skills tests to anyone with a valid PA permit. This means that you can take the road test at a PennDOT-certified driving school rather than wait for an available appointment at the DMV. Driven2Drive is the first company to be certified by PennDOT as a Third Party License Testing Center, we have six locations and can get a road test scheduled in as little as two days.
For example, in Pennsylvania, there are certain driving schools that are certified as PennDOT Driver’s License Centers where you can complete your driving test.
Why Third-Party Testing Centers Are Better for PA Road Tests
Leading up to the PA Road Test, students often feel anxious about visiting the DMV due to its reputation for long wait times, unfriendly examiners, and complicated procedures. However, there’s a much easier and more convenient way to take your PA road test: Driven2Drive, a PennDOT-certified third-party license testing center with six convenient locations throughout Greater Philadelphia. Driven2Drive has a team of patient & friendly examiners and can get a road test scheduled in as little as two days.

What Is Third-Party Driving Test Like at Driven2Drive?
Upon finding out that there’s an alternative way to take your PA license test, you might wonder: “What is a third-party driving test, exactly?” For the most part, the third-party driving test is exactly the same as a driving test at the DMV, the only difference being it’s performed at a driving school instead. On the exam itself, you can still expect to demonstrate certain skills to your examiner, such as parallel parking, knowledge of vehicle controls, and other road skills.
