When getting your Massachusetts driver’s license, there’s a lot you need to prepare for and to know. Failing to take the time to learn these things can cost you time, money, and headache in the long run. To prevent all that, use our list of resources to help you learn what you need to know and what you need to do to prepare.
Teen Permit Test
Although teens are the ones who are getting their permit, the Massachusetts permit practice test is for anyone learning to drive for the first time (and who has never held a license before). Since 70% of people fail the permit test on their first attempt, use this practice test to be in that 30%.
Renewing Driver’s License Test
If your Massachusetts driver’s license has not been expired for more than a year, or is valid at the time of renewal, then you do not need to take the Massachusetts driver’s license renewal test. Otherwise, you will have to take the test.
New to State Driver’s License Test
If you are new to the state of Massachusetts, you only have to take the Massachusetts new-to-state driver’s license test if your old license has been expired for more than one year. If it’s still valid, or has been expired for less than a year, then you don’t need to take the test.
State Driving Manual / Handbook
The Massachusetts driving manual is the most important resource in getting your Massachusetts driver’s license. You’re not going to pass any of these practice tests or your on-road exam without reading it at least once. Click the link to download the latest version.
Road Signs Practice Test
Road signs will appear on every test: the written exam, the on-road test, and even the vision test when you renew your Massachusetts driver’s license. To prepare for all that, we have a Massachusetts road signs practice test that covers all the signs that could appear on any of these exams.
