Illinois Road Test and Mock Road Test


Did you know you can skip the hard to get road test appointment at the Secretary of State and take it at Joyce’s with a quick scheduled appointment with us?

Half-hour appointments available at your local location but you may schedule at any of our locations.

Students under the age of 18 who have completed all of the Illinois drivers ed requirements with a classroom grade of 80% or higher are eligible to take a Road Test with us.
You do not have to be 16 years old to take a test.

Things to keep in mind when scheduling a Road Test with us:

  • Tests are taken in on our driver’s ed vehicles with one of our certified instructors.
  • You will still need a standard appointment at the Secretary of State to take the picture and get your physical license.
  • Must have completed 50 hours of driving outside of driver’s ed and show log at time of appointment.
  • If your student does not pass our road test, they will have to go to the DMV for a second try.
  • Students are subject to random spot-checks at the Secretary of State even if they pass.
  • New Students – Once registered and paid for the Road Test, you will be able to schedule a test time after we have activated your account.
  • Current Students – Log into your student portal and click on Enroll and schedule.

The MOCK ROAD TEST option below should help any students who are not 100% sure of their skills.

The Mock Road Test will help your student get prepared for the road test with us or at the DMV.
Our instructors will perform a full mock road test, discuss any errors with your student, review any skills that need to be reviewed, then perform another test, if time permits.

The Mock Road Test is a one hour, one-on-one lesson that needs to be scheduled by calling our office at 847-977-7193 after you purchase it online.

CURRENT students can purchase these items in their student portal.

NEW students will have to register through the MOCK ROAD TEST or ROAD TEST enrollment buttons below so we can gather all of your info.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • Just wanted to post a thank you message to Joyce’s driving school! From day one it has been flawless and I highly recommend having your son/daughter taking the road test with Joyce’s vs DMV. We didn’t get to the DMV till 3:45pm but since he had already completed the road test, we were able to go in right away and walk out 30 minutes later with his license. Thanks so much! From whoever answered my calls to the instructors, it was perfection and I will continue to recommend your business.

  • Hello!! Just wanted to share a quick story. My daughter took her driver's test last Thursday (she passed, yeah!!!) When she returned the first thing her instructor/tester(?) said to me was "money well spent mom". I was confused at first but he went on to say that he noticed she took driver's ed with Joyce's and what a wonderful job she did and how great of a driver she was. He said he had 3 other students from Joyce's that day and that they all did a great job. He said they must have some great instructors at Joyce's and what a great job they do. I'm sure he see's students from many schools in the area and what a compliment to Joyce's that he would go out of his way to mention that. Thought you should know! Thanks Joyce's!!!!!!
