There are a few reasons, test takers fail their NH Permit Test. A test taker who fails may not have studied thoroughly. Or he or she may have been nervous, anxious and/or distracted on the day of the test. If you fail your NH Permit Test, you will not receive your NH Learner's Permit, and you will need to retake the exam. You will be able to do so after ten days have passed, however, do not rush retaking the exam. Take your time. Read the entire NH Driver's Manual again and answer test questions on our website [link] so that the next time you take the NH Permit Test you have the best chance of passing.
