Since COVID they say they spend more time asking you question outside the car. What type of questions are they?

    No questions have changed since COVID. Before you begin the driving test (actually driving a car with the examiner sitting beside you), the California DMV examiner asks you the same questions outside the car as they always have, and it takes no longer than it always has.

    No it hasn't changed since Covid.  The questions you'll be asked are all (no exceptions) taken directly out of the current version of the driver's handbook, which you're expected to know well enough to pass the exam.

    The questions are always the same.  They're about traffic laws and the general rules of the road in California.  If you know enough of the correct answers, you'll be almost insulted by how easy the test is.  If you don't, you'll fail and have to try again.  There won't be any trick questions, there won't be any traps, and you won't be asked anything that is impossible to answer correctly.  

    Since you're looking for tips and tricks for passing the test, here are a few you can actually use...

    1. When you're doing the driving test, the signs tell you everything you need to know.  Examiners love roads with changing speed limits (schools, hospital zones), intersections with prohibited turns (they'll tell you to take the next right when they know right turns are prohibited at the next intersection), and railroad crossings.  

    2. You'll drive down at least one road where there are no speed limit signs.  There are standard speed limits in every city and on rural roads, and they're printed in the book.  You're expected to know what those limits are if no signs are posted.

    3.  You're only being graded on your ability to drive safely and legally, not on your ability to play Simon Says.  If the examiner tells you to take the next left, and then you miss the turn, you'll still pass the exam.  Missing the turn you wanted to take is not illegal in any way, in fact people do it all the time.  Cutting across two lanes of traffic to suddenly make that turn, however, will cause you to fail the exam.

    Yes.  Someone knows the questions they will ask.  The examiner knows.  The type questions are all related to driving.

    The written test is the same so no worry there.     Consider the area,  they will probably ask you about driving thru a flood street,  what to do in a sand storm,   what to do if your car is over heating.   They may hit you with some right of way questions.

    They spend more time outside the car because it is SAFER.  HOWEVER, I was never asked questions outside the car or in the car.  Everything was in the DMV building.   It will all be in your Driver's Training Manual.
