Frequently Asked Questions - Preparing For Your MA Permit Test

You must answer 18 of the 25 questions on your Permit Test correctly in order to pass successfully.
In MA, you have the option of taking your MA Permit test at a RMV office. You can find a list of available locations by visiting this website:
Don't cram the night before your exam. Instead, you should review the notes and information you have already studied. If you've done a thorough job studying, the night before should be a quiet review session. It's also a good idea to take a few practice questions on our website. Get a good night's rest as well.
Once you feel ready to take your MA Permit Test you should gather the necessary documents, which include your Social Security Number, three identification documents (document that you signed, document that proves your birth and another that demonstrates your residency in MA) and if you are under 18, you will need to bring an application signed by your parents or legal guardians. Remember, as well, to bring the $30 Permit Test fee.
To have the best chance of passing your MA Permit Test, you should read the entire manual.
The best way to study for the MA Permit Test is to read the MA Driver's manual. You can find quiz questions on our website that can act as a supplement to the MA Driver's manual.
If you are under 18, you will have to attend and complete a Driver's Education course. This course can be completed through your high school or through a professional driving school. The RMV needs a certificate of completion to demonstrate your attendance.
You can find a copy of MA Driver's Manual at any local RMV office. The book is free. You can also download the MA Driver's Manual by visiting this website:
