“Hi, I’m John. I’m going to show you how to pass the Washington State Driving Test.

I'm a Master Examiner, and I used to train driving examiners for DOL. I also did “check-rides” with examiners to make sure they were delivering the test properly.

I made this website to help people prepare for the driving test. I hope that it helps you."
