Pass the Washington State Driving Test

Nine video lessons that show you how to pass the driving test to get your WA driver's license


Do you need to pass the driving test in Washington state? Do you crave the freedom and mobility that comes with having your driver’s license, but you’re worried about the test?

Have you failed your driving test? Wouldn’t it be great to pass the driving test on your next try?

Do you have to pass the driving test in order to keep the license you have, or to get back a license that was taken away?

People are counting on you, and you don’t want to let them down by failing the test. You don’t want to let yourself down either! You have to pass the test, because you need to drive to work. Or school. Or to help out a friend, or family member.

My online training course, Pass the Washington State Driving Test, will help you pass the test. You’ll get access to nine video lessons that show you exactly what to do to pass the driving test. This course will teach you:

  • Exactly what to do on each part of the Washington driving test
  • The words and phrases the examiner will use when they give instructions
  • How to avoid the most common errors
  • The automatic failures that will make you fail the test instantly

By learning these things, you will:

  • Be ready for the test and know what you’re supposed to do
  • Be more calm and confident on test day
  • Know what to focus on and pay attention to when you practice each maneuver
  • Know how the scoring system works, and which errors you must avoid
  • Pass the test!

This course has nine video lessons that walk you through each part of the test. The videos are a combination of me calmly explaining that part of the test, and then patiently demonstrating that part of the test in the car. Each lesson comes with a study guide that you can download and read or print. Many of the lessons have diagrams that illustrate the do’s and don’ts of each maneuver.


After getting several requests from students, I added audio-only versions of every lesson in the course! Now you can download lessons as MP3 files to your mobile device and listen to them in the car while you are practicing for the test.

    I took John’s course and passed my driving test with a 90% on the first try. The course goes into very good detail on the most critical aspects of the driving test, and John’s emphasis on good vision was one of the things my examiner noted on the test. Pay attention to what John says about good vision; this course will have you pass the driving test. This is great work, John; thank you for putting it together and helping me pass the test! I highly recommend this premium course.

    I purchased the premium course just before my road test and it REALLY boosted my confidence on taking the test. Knowing the small things that the instructor is looking for was very helpful. I would recommend anyone getting ready to take their road test purchase the premium course to fine tune their driving skills.

    This course is amazing. I have been practicing the parallel parking with poles. Best tip lately was the evaluator looks at your speed so do less than posted since at their angle it may make you look like you are speeding. I only bought and reviewed the course the night before my evaluation so I need to retake the driving test. i think all drivers would benefit whether as the whole thing makes a person drive so much more awareness.

    I failed my test on my first attempt, I then took this course and passed 3 weeks later. So helpful and informative!

    The course was clear and had good video examples. The clear focus on expected elements helped me to focus in on areas to practice with my daughter, and she was able to pass the exam on her first attempt.

    The course was useful and I learned lots of essential tips which helped me to pass the driving test , I recommend it to everyone who want to take a driving test , Thank to John .

    Amazing course. I’ve been driving for 20 years in another country and completely failed my first test here in WA. Taking this course completely changed it for me and I passed the second test with distinction.

    At the age of 67, DOL required I pass the written and driving tests before renewing. I failed my 1st attempt to complete the test. I needed help!
    This particular WA STATE Driving Course was affordable and provided all of the instruction necessary to pass DOL testing. In fact, I got 96 points out of 100!! I failed the test before I completed this course. Thank you, Thank you!

    Excellent course it really helped me pass my driver’s test. I’m very anxiety prone so knowing exactly what was going to be on the test made it possible for me to do the test without freaking out. I sent the link to my friend about to take her driver’s license test when she asked what was on the test. Would recommend to anyone about to take a driver’s license test in Washington state.

    This course was really helpful , I bought one week before the test, John answered my question and helped me a lot with all my doubts and fears. Thank you John I did the test today and I scored 96 points.

    This course was amazing overall. Very detailed videos explaining the maneuvers, turns and literally everything you need to know to pass your driving test in Washington state. The test in Washington has been called one of the hardest in the country mostly due to the more complex maneuvers and higher examiner expectations. I was very intimidated at first, not by driving itself, but by the high expectations to pass the WA road test. I figured I would face my fears and give it a try and to my embarrassment I failed the test on my first try. After trying to figure what went wrong, I found this website and took the premium course ASAP. I learned very quickly why I failed and how do better on it next time. After taking this premium course, I went back and passed my test on the second try. So grateful for all John’s great videos and tips, don’t know what I would have done without it. The examiner even commented on how I seemed to be exaggerating, but I was just following the advice on move your head so the examiner can see it. I never thought I’d be able to pass Washington’s road test, but with all the help from this above and beyond excellent course I got my license! If you are working toward getting your first WA license, take this course today. Thank you John, you are one of the best instructors I have ever seen!

    I Found myself in the unique position of having to take my testing all over again after almost 40 years. This led me to assume that I could pass a road test without a little brush up because I have been driving for so long. Then of course when I promptly did something to “autofail”, due to bad habits I had picked up over the years, my confidence was rocked. I was quite uncertain about my ability to pass this test. I was embarrassed that I had become complacent.
    This course offered me a tangible, (video, reading, audio) way to engage in valuable lessons.
    It gave me confidence and I did not fear the testing procedure at all. I passed with flying colors.
    Best of all, it’s a great brush up of better vision so I may drive with more safely with the precious grandbabies in the car.
    You will enjoy this course. I did.

    I passed my driver test on the first go today in Spokane. I live quite rural so seeing the examples gave me a more clear idea of where to focus my urban practice before the test. Thanks for these videos, they definitely helped me feel more prepared so I could focus on the actual maneuvers instead of panicking :).

  35. 5 out of 5


    This course helped prepare me for the road test mentally. I was able to know what to expect on the test and get some inside tips on how it is scored. I have bad anxiety and this helped me when I wasn’t physically driving. The reason I purchased this course was because it was specifically for WA state. The free course is helpful, but if you’re nervous about the test at all, I’d say this is a great purchase to help ease some of your fears. There’s videos for everything that’s on the road test and he gives you extra tips to help you. I’ll admit that I saw this course a few months back, but didn’t want to spend the money on it. As I got closer to scheduling the road test, I decided to try it and figured it couldn’t hurt. I’m glad I did because he explains in detail how to perform the different maneuvers and provides little cheat sheets to help you.

    This is really helpful! I passed my test on the first try with 96 and the examiner said my driving was “pretty much perfect”.

    I took John’s online course. He was my main guiding light when I was in a very dark place and had no idea how to practice for the exam. I am very good at following directions if I am given just the facts and a clear explanation of them. He does that… no excess chatter. His calm and steady demeanor really helped to keep me calm and focused. His email communication was invaluable to my learning. He is very supportive, calm and thorough. He is a Master Examiner and teaches examiners. I highly recommend it.

    He doesn’t teach you HOW to drive but teaches exactly what is required to PASS the WA state exam step by step. The Washington Driving exam is the most difficult in the 50 states (not my opinion but based on the study of all of the exams.) He knows exactly what they are looking and watching for and if you really put the time and work in you will be ready.

    I studied my brains out for the 8 days I was allowed to prepare before the test and then just had to rely on staying calm and focusing on what I needed to do.

    He also works and interacts with you by email, answering your questions and giving you additional pointers. It was so helpful. I wouldn’t have passed without taking the course or him helping me. If you are going to take the exam in Washington state this is the source you need to check out. He has 4 free lessons to give you an idea of what the course is like before you pay for the whole course.

    After the first lesson I realized this was exactly what I needed. It worked out great for this 67 year old man who had taken his first test back in 1967 at age 15…. it had been a while. Also that exam back then was in California which is different, actually easier. This exam was going to be a tough nut to crack. I needed and got John’s help.

    Oh funny thing the examiner told me afterward the exam. She said I was talking to myself while I was driving during the exam. I was hearing John’s voice in my head and repeating what he had said in the videos …. things like ‘don’t hit the curb, don’t hit the curb’…. then ‘don’t hit the car, don’t hit the car’…. ‘make a full stop, make a full stop’. She said she had to keep herself from smiling and chuckling because she could hear my thoughts and knew I understood exactly what to do…. and I passed!

    Washington State Driving Test and John helped me tremendously in
    passing my first driving test with a score of 91%. This website
    provided comprehensive information about the driving test process plus
    tips, strategies and videos. These alleviated my fear and anxiety
    during driving practice and the test itself. I focused on strategies
    and tips that are provided in the premium package for the driving
    test. The facts and information in the premium package is worth much
    more than what you pay for. John was very helpful in responding to my
    numerous questions. I consider washingtonstatedrivingtest.com and
    John, blessings for my test’s successful outcome. What I learned will
    help me gain confidence in driving responsively and defensively in the
    future. Many thanks John!

how to pass the washington driving test

Let’s talk a little bit more about what’s in this course. 

I’ll demonstrate the maneuvers that you have to perform on the test, such as

  • Starting and merging
  • Turns
  • Parking on a hil
  • Backing around a corner
  • Parallel parking

I’ll show you how to do each maneuver, and then we’ll talk about the different errors that the examiner is looking for on that maneuver. That way you know what to do, and what not to do, on each part of the test.

We’ll also go over the general driving stuff that the examiner is watching out for, such as

  • Using good vision
  • Knowing how to control the car
  • Signs, signals, and lanes
  • General scoring tips
Traffic signal on driving test, turn right on red
park on hill on WA driving test

When you enroll in the course, you also gain access to me. I’m a certified Master Examiner, and I taught other examiners how to give people the test when I worked for DOL. I know this stuff inside and out. 

You’ll get to ask me questions about your test, and I’ll help you address your concerns about it. This is a valuable benefit! My students have told me that my answers to their questions were a huge help in figuring out how to apply the lessons to their own situation, and then pass the test.

“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. Over time I realized that the whole thing could be simplified. If you follow a few simple rules and procedures, and get plenty of driving practice, passing the Washington driving test is easy.

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