Washington, D.C. Driver’s License Practice Test FAQs:

What should I expect on the Washington, D.C. driver’s license test?

The D.C. written knowledge exam includes questions on D.C. vehicle laws and driving regulations that you can find in the driver’s handbook. You’ll have 60 minutes to complete your test. If you fail, you’ll need to wait at least 3 days before you can test again, and you can test up to 6 times within a 1-year period before you’d need to wait a full year before retesting.

Does this practice test include the same questions I’ll see on the DMV permit test?

Our free District of Columbia driver’s license practice test pulls information directly from the D.C. DMV’s driver’s handbook, which is also where the DMV takes its questions from. The D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles may switch up its exact questions from year to year, but the information you’re tested on doesn’t change.

How do I earn my Washington, D.C. driver’s license?

To earn your D.C. driver’s license, you must be at least 17 years old. All drivers under 21 years old must also first acquire a learner’s permit—available once you’re at least 16 years old—and hold it for at least 6 months while you practice driving, accumulating at least 40 hours of supervised practice hours. Then you can take your road test and earn your provisional license. After holding your provisional license for at least 6 months, you can graduate to a full D.C. driver’s license.

If you’re 21 years old or older, a learner’s permit is optional to obtain your license, but it’s required if you plan to practice driving on D.C. roads in any way. You must be fully prepared to pass both the written knowledge exam and the behind-the-wheel road test.
