DOT Practice Test FAQs:

What’s on the DOT knowledge and road tests?

The DOT knowledge and road tests are comprised of your state’s traffic laws and safe driving measures—all information that can be found in your state’s driving handbook. You’ll be quizzed on obeying speed limits, following traffic signals, safely maneuvering your car while sharing the road, and other topics.

How do I earn my driver’s license in my state?

To earn your driver’s license, you must pass a knowledge exam and a behind-the-wheel road test. In most states, you must also first earn an instruction permit and practice driving before taking your road test.

What type of practice test should I take to prepare for my DOT exam?

You should take a free practice test that focuses on the type of license exam you’re taking, such as a standard driver’s license practice test, a motorcycle DOT practice exam, or a CDL practice test for commercial drivers.
