Check: Routine tasks, such as ordinary driving, don't require a skill check. A character makes a check only when some unusual circumstance exists (such as inclement weather or an icy surface), or when the character is driving during a dramatic situation (the character is being chased or attacked, for example, or is trying to reach a destination in a limited amount of time).

The character cannot attempt a drive roll if he is denied his Dex bonus to AC.

Try Again?: Most driving checks have consequences for failure that make trying again impossible.

Special: A character cannot take 10 or 20. A character with the Vehicle Expert feat gets a +2 bonus on all Drive checks.

There is no penalty for operating a general-purpose vehicle. Other types of vehicles (heavy wheeled, powerboat, sailboat, ship, and tracked) require the corresponding Surface Vehicle Operation feat, or the character takes a -4 penalty on Drive checks.

Time: A drive check is usually a move action but situations may change depending on the action.
