At these sites, you can practice written exam tests or take simulated driving tests that will gauge your driving in real traffic situations.
Online Drivers Education Game
In this game simulation, the driver has a choice of four driving instructors who will guide the driver through practice and the test. Drivers can complete practice lessons involving parallel parking, turning left at a green light, turning at a four way stop and pulling out of a parking space. Drivers use their computers' arrow keys for steering. The simulated instructors provide feedback on each task, and the driver can proceed to the driver's test when ready.

When ready, take the test which includes backing out of a parking spot.
