How can you 'flunk' when you move to another state? I have taken exactly 3 written driving tests in my life: In LA when I started driving, and in NY for my CDL and HazMat. I have held licences in Texas, California, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Colorado. Nothing to 'flunk', you just roll into DMV, fill out the paperwork, pay the man, get yr picture snapped, and that's it.
I don't know about you, but when I moved from Ohio to California, CA DMV
made me take a written test. I didn't have to take the road test because
I already had a valid Ohio driver's license, but I could have failed the
written test if I missed enough questions. Not bloody likely, but
As I have said--up until the time I left there in 1989, in California, if you got or renewed in an office, you took the written exam. And could fail it.
I only took one driving test--when I got my first license. My belief is that that was the rule, unless you collected a lot of certain kinds of violations.
When I moved to Nebraska, I took their picture book "written", and seems like I had to take the picture-book exam every time I renewed until I got a CDL.
When I got the CDL I took written tests on General Knowledge (Got me into the game for a Class B), Combinations (Class A), and for endorsements: Air Brakes, Doubles and Triples, Tanks, and Hazardous Materials (at the time a gnarly test was all that was required, now you have to buy fingerprints, background checks so I didn't renew that I understand you have to go through the whole thing including the written for the Hazmat endorsement now).
So the short summary is, when I renewed the CDL, no tests (not counting the eye check).
