Congratulations on getting ready to take your Connecticut driving test. Taking both the written and driving tests can be nerve-wracking, and most new drivers wonder how many mistakes are allowed on a driving test, so you’re not alone.
Minor mistakes are assigned points, and drivers may accumulate up to 24 points during the test. Accumulating more than 25 points results in failure of your Connecticut driving test.
Additionally, there are some mistakes that will cause you to automatically fail. Here are a few of the illegal maneuvers that will result in automatic failure of your Connecticut driving test:
  • Entering an intersection you cannot clear
  • Speeding
  • Collisions of any kind
  • Performing any illegal action
In addition to a few minor mistakes on your driving test, you can miss up to five questions on your written driver’s test. We hope knowing you have a little bit of wiggle room on your driving tests will help calm your nerves. Knowing you’re protected with solid car insurance should help as well.
