Leave an hour and a half early. You don't want to risk it. I am taking in culver city so I'm forced to get a hotel. I can't deal with the 405 everyday for 5 long days.
I looked on mapquest, jk who the hell uses mapquest, google maps, and it says it's 2.1 miles, a 40 minute walk. There is no way it would take an hour and a half by car, unless LA traffic really is THAT bad. But I would basically just get out of the uber and start walking if it was like that.
Ok, well I guess if you're taking Uber you won't have to deal with parking too. It once took me 1.5 hrs to go 12 miles, from Santa Monica to Korea Town.
Not sure if you're from here, but I've lived in LA my entire life. 1.5 hours early is absurd if you're going 2.1 miles from Pico-Robertson to Century City lol. You're supposed to be seated for the exam by 8:20am. There are some businesses in that area but there is going to be 0 traffic at that time (other than other exam takers trying to park). You're not going to be taking the freeway. It will take you 10-15min at most (if you run into bad luck with the lights) in an Uber going up Olympic.
I'm sorry it took you 1.5 hours to get from SM to K-town but that is an extreme case. Though I'd argue that even with traffic it should take no more than 1 hour unless you got lost. If you travel nearly 13 miles from the western most point of any major city directly towards that city's downtown during rush hour, there will unsurprisingly be a shit ton of traffic.
Again, you have to be seated at 8:20am. If I left my apartment in Santa Monica before 8am it would take me 25 minutes to get to downtown LA, which is farther away than K-town.
