The North Carolina driver's road test gives driver license applicants an opportunity to demonstrate driving skills after passing prerequisite tests, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. The road test involves safely executing basic driving maneuvers in traffic.
Some of the skills to practice for the on-the-road driving test include using turn signals and proper use of the car horn. Driving practice should include opportunities to approach intersections that have stop signs and traffic signals. Practice sessions should include safely following other vehicles on the road. The driver should also practice backing the vehicle safely, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
