The biggest and most important mistake to avoid is not studying thoroughly. Most people who fail the GA Permit Test did not read the GA Driver's Manual efficiently.
No. You are not allowed to use your GA Driver's Manual or any other study materials during your GA Permit Test.
No. You do not have to take a drug test, but you will be required to demonstrate your completion of the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program.
If you fail one or both sections of the GA Permit, you will be able to retake the section(s) as early as the next business day. If you fail a section on the GA Permit Test you will have to wait 7 days, and if you fail three times you have to wait 30 days. It's a good idea not to rush retaking the test if you fail the first time.
After you pass your permit test and after you have paid the $10 permit fee, you will receive your GA Learner's Permit. You will be able to drive anywhere in GA as long as you are accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older. You must a wait a year and 1 day before you can apply for your license. If you are under 18, you must complete a Driver's Education course and 40 hours of behind the wheel training.
If you are under 18, a parent, legal guardian, responsible adult or authorized Driver Training Instructor should accompany you. This individual must sign your driver's license application. If you are over 18, any licensed driver who is 21 years or older can accompany you.
The GA Permit Test is divided into two sections. Each section consists of 20 questions. You need to answer correctly 15 questions from each section, meaning that you can only get 5 wrong in each section. If you fail one section and pass the other, the GA DDS will only require that you retake the section you failed.
You should visit your local GA DDS office. You can find a list of available locations near you by visiting this website: http://www.dds.ga.gov/locations/LocationList.aspx.
