What Happens If You Run a Stop Sign During Your Road Test?

Although state laws differ, in California, failing to stop for a stop sign during a road test is a "critical driving error" that results in the driver automatically failing the test, states Driver's Ed Direct. The same is true in Indiana, explains the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Other critical errors that result in an automatic failure on a driving test in California include driving 10 mph over or under the safe speed limit, dangerous maneuvering, and failing to use necessary auxillary equipment, such as not turning on the windshield wipers in the rain, notes Drivers Ed Direct. In Indiana, automatic failures result from similar safety violations, including speeding, failing to yield the right of way and failing to obey applicable laws at a railroad crossing, reports the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
