* Subverted in the ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' episode "Driving Mr. Boondy". Al has to take a driving test and discovers that his son, Bud, will be administering the test. Al passes by threatening Bud.
** Same episode, airhead daughter Kelly has no problem passing her test.
* ''Series/MamasFamily'', in the episode "Mama Learns to Drive".
* ''Series/DrakeAndJosh''
* Spoofed in ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' when Reese, annoyed that his driving instructor did not give him any time to take his driving test, usurps the driving seat from the other girl so he could at least drive back to the DMV. Suddenly, a lady accidentally bumps into the car. Reese, panicking (thinking he messed up), drives off and eventually gets involved in a low speed chase with several police cars. You ''have to'' watch the whole episode just to know how hilarious it is.
** Not to mention that the chase ends when Reese returns to the driving school and completes the course PERFECTLY. He even [[ParallelParking parallel parks]] in his time behind the wheel, prompting a cop watching the chase at Malcolm's home to remark "That's impressive!"

* ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' had an episode that revealed that Chase, the [[SixthRanger Third Rider]] and a [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek Roidmude]], didn't have a license for his CoolBike; since he's affiliated with the Tokyo Police Department, that just won't do so he takes the test. Naturally a Roidmude attacks in the middle of it and Chase steps away from the learner car to fight it, though he does apologize to the instructor beforehand (and transforms right in front of the poor confused guy). He does eventually go back and pass the test, though. [[spoiler:And when he dies in the final battle, his damaged license becomes a TragicKeepsake for Gou (Kamen Rider Mach).]]

* In ''VideoGame/GranTurismo'', you have to take driving tests before you're given a chance to purchase the coolest cars in the game or participate in the the highest-paying races (the first game wouldn't let you race ''at all'' in simulation mode without at least a B license), and this game is all about the CoolCar. The driving tests were as realistic as they could be in [=PS1=] hardware. [[SoCoolItsAwesome Cue joy from driving enthusiasts]], [[ItsHardSoItSucks frustration from the majority of '90s kids]], and [[IKnowMortalKombat the making of future generation of racers]].

* Subverted often in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', where Spongebob tries (and fails) to get his Boat Driving License every few episodes.
** He always fails because he panics and smashes the gas pedal down '''hard''', ramming the boat into a brick wall at top speed. Every. Single. Time.
*** And one can't forget Mrs. Puff, who administers his test, blowing up into huge size.

* In an episode of ''Series/KenanAndKel'', Kenan wants to get his drivers license, despite his parents not allowing him until he's 18. After working out a plan to take his driving test, Kenan ends up staying up all night to work on a science project and is too tired to take the test the next day that he ends up crashing the car.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' episode "Driving Miss Hazy", Lincoln decides to help Leni get her driver license after getting tired of having to beg Lori for rides. Given that Leni has failed her driving test 13 times and can't even drive the lawnmower, Lincoln has to resort to "speaking Leni" in order to teach her.

* What is ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'' if not an entire season of this trope? It's essentially a driving boot camp where Canada's worst drivers gain some practice and break their bad habits. The spirit of this trope is played arrow-straight in each season's final challenge, where remaining students have to take host Andrew out onto public roads for a driving test. Not surprisingly, since this places each driver in real-world conditions, it's what largely decides who is named Canada's Worst Driver.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', one episode focuses entirely on three characters taking their driving tests. Porky's license expired, and Daffy and Lola were both so clueless, they didn't even know they needed licenses. Porky "fails", because his written test gets swapped with Daffy's (maliciously) and Lola (accidentally) both times he tries. Then, for different reasons, Daffy and Lola wind up grading ''themselves'' on the driving test (Sam was administering the test. He was too short to see out the window for Daffy's significant-but-slow errors, and while he got a booster seat for Lola's test, she DrivesLikeCrazy, and he was in shock at the end of it.)

* Parodied in ''DragonBall Z'', where Goku and Piccolo try to get licenses. Their competitive personalities result in much mayhem.
* Subverted in the ''YoureUnderArrest'' manga. Natsumi (an utterly reckless driver) already has a motorcycle license, but not a car license. Upon deciding to obtain one she's eventually required to take a driving test. Her driving is so utterly reckless that the tester passes out almost immediately and doesn't wake up until Natsumi parks back in the lot. She passed.
