The KY Permit Test consists of two sections: rules of the road and road signs. You will need to answer 24 of the 30 rules of the road questions and 8 out of 10 road sign questions correctly in order to pass.
You will take your permit test at your local DMV office. You can find a list of available locations at this website: http://www.KYDMV.state.KY.us/administration/driver_licensing_control/rol...
The night before your permit test make sure you review your notes. Don't try to cram a ton of new information last minute. Also make sure you get a good night's rest.
Only you can know when you are ready to take the KY permit test. Before the test, make sure you're familiar with all of these topics: common risks and dangers on the road, responding to accidents, driving in various districts, right of way rules and DUI laws.
Questions on the KY permit test cover the entire KY Driver's Manual e.g. "What is the speed limit for urban areas? "or "What is carbon monoxide and how is it potentially harmful?"
Yes. It's a very good idea to study for your permit test as this is the best way to ensure that you will pass. Though there are quite a few questions for which you need only use common sense, a few questions on the exam require more advanced knowledge.
If you are under 18, you will need to complete at least 60 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older. Ten of those hours must be completed during the night, and after you receive your license you will need to pass a 4 hour Graduated Licensing Education course.
You find a copy of the KY Driver's Manual by visiting your local library or by downloading a copy online at this website: http://transportation.ky.gov/Driver-Licensing/Pages/Driver-Testing-Manua...
It's a good idea to read the entire manual. The permit test will cover the entire driver's manual. To be the most prepared for the exam and to give you the best chance of passing, you want to be familiar with the manual.
