If you know how to drive then you shouldn't be worried.

I already said I don't know how it's enforced. I have seen signs in road test areas that indicate the area is used for testing. I would imagine that unless a DMV official sees you practicing immediately before the test or you have an accident or get pulled over for a traffic violation, no one will know.

However, if a cop saw a kid driving a car with an adult in the passenger seat (as is supposed to be the case with learner's permit drivers) there would be a high likelihood of getting busted. Let's face it - a learner's permit driver is pretty easy to spot, especially if they are practicing in a road test area. Age, confidence, skill... too many telltale signs.

Way back I knew someone who got busted practicing in a test area. My memory is fuzzy, but I recall it made it difficult for them to get their actual license.

Don't do it. There is no reason for it. If you can't obey a simple "no practicing" sign, how do you expect the DMV to trust you to obey the other, more important signs on the road? The juice isn't worth the squeeze.

Practice everywhere else. If you have the skills, you will have no trouble passing.

And use your mirrors in an obvious manner and do your shoulder check before changing lanes. Keep your hands - both of them - on the wheel at 9 and 3 (or 10 and 2).
