Practice Makes Perfect

Study for your driver's permit test with free practice tests. Our practice exams will help you feel confident with your knowledge and ready to take the test.

The rules and regulations can make the DMV Written Permit exam very frustrating, but you should not let this deter you from taking a few of the practice tests here. The permit practice tests are designed to help you feel confident on the exam day, and they may even lead to a higher score if they are taken in preparation for the actual test.


The purpose of this test is to ensure you know how to drive safely. It requires you to know a great number of specific road rules and driving regulations: basic road rules, speed limits, braking distances, traffic signs and more.

Studying the official DMV manual is always a good start, but it can be exhausting. Your state’s official Drivers Manual is over 100 pages long. It’s filled with extensive information that may or may not be covered on the DMV test, and it’s definitely not laid out like it will be on the real test. To make matters worse, the manual may not best prepare you for the tricky questions on the real test.

Avoid Wasting Time Pass on the First Try

You want to pass your DMV driver's permit practice test on your first try. Failing your permit test means that you have to reschedule, wasting additional time and money. Most states require a waiting period before you are allowed to retake the exam. Depending on the state, this waiting period can range anywhere from 3 to 30 days, which means you have to wait even longer before you can earn your permit. Avoid all of the additional hassles of retaking your state’s permit test.
