I want to take my DL test soon. I'm doing better at the whole driving thing and my SO wants me to get a job soon. So has anyone taken the test before? Or better yet in Ottawa, IL?

I have taken the test before, be careful of the parallel parking bit - that's the part most people fail on.  they really want you to get that car in in 2 - 3 moves.

I've never taken the test in Ottawa, I did take it once in Galesburg and one in Waukegan.  it was the same test in both places, the only difference was the wait time.

oh, and be VERY obvious about checking your mirrors about 3 times what you normally would check them.  also, make sure to put your seatbelt on and adjust your mirrors before you even start the car.  good luck!

I'm in Morris, haven't taken the test out there before though......just make sure to stop completely at stop signs. That's a big thing too, stop & count to like 3 in your head lol

do they still do that? YIKES, when I got mine I did it in my home town Aurora, and they didn't have me do that.......thank God cause I would have failed that majorly!!
