Prepare You For The Actual Test

Before you take the actual permit test, you should complete practice permit tests as you would at your local testing center. For example, you might be able to recall all the important chapters of your state’s driver handbook but if it takes you three hours to do so that wouldn’t be so helpful. Check with your local DMV to make sure you know how long you will have on actual test day and then mimic those test situations when you take the permit test. Mimicking those test situations will make you more efficient and capable.

A good practice permit test will familiarize you with the types of questions on the real permit test.

Because every second and point counts, you’ll want to take practice tests to ensure you know a range of various terms and questions.

Helps You Find Your Weak Spots

Your state’s driver handbook is a strong primary source for studying. Almost every website will suggest reading your driver handbook as your main way of studying for the exam. Your state's manual is really helpful, but they can't help you do everything. Practice permit tests will help you figure out what areas you may need to review more thoroughly. For example, maybe you’re really bad with retaining numbers or maybe you have trouble with road signs. A test will help you discover what types of questions you have difficulty answering. Once you’ve figured out your weak spots, you can spend more time practicing and studying to improve and stregthen those areas.
