What should I expect on my VT Driving Exam?

Your examiner wants to see that you are capable of driving safely and effectively. During your VT Driving Exam, you want to make sure that you are not driving too quickly or too slowly; you want to accelerate smoothly and gradually. Obey all stop signs and traffic signals, do not tailgate other vehicles and stay in the correct lane. You should also know what various street signs and traffic signals indicate to drivers on the road.

Is the VT Permit Test open book?

No. You are not allowed to use your VT Driver's Manual or any other study material while you take your VT Permit Test.

What happens if I fail my VT Permit Test?

There are a few reasons, test takers fail their VT 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 VT Permit Test, you will not receive your VT Learner's Permit, and you will need to retake the exam. You will be able to do so as early as the next business day, however, do not rush retaking the exam. Take your time.

What happens after I pass my VT Permit Test?

If you pass your VT Permit Test, you will receive your VT Learner's Permit. If you are over 18, you can apply for your license whenever you are ready.

During this time, you should complete forty hours of behind-the-wheel training.

How should I practice driving for my VT Driving Exam?

You should practice and develop a number of safe driving skills. You should feel comfortable accelerating smoothly and gradually, passing through intersections safely, changing lanes effectively, coming to a complete stop at stop signs and traffic signals, sharing the road with other drives, maintaining the speed limit, staying in the correct lane and more.
