There are a few reasons, test takers fail their NE Permit Test. A test taker who fails may not have studied thoroughly. Or he or she may have been nervous, anxious and/or distracted on the day of the test. If you fail your NE Permit Test, you will not receive your NE Learner's Permit, and you will need to retake the exam. You are able to do so after one day has passed, however, do not rush retaking the exam. Take your time. Read the entire NE Driver's Manual again and answer test questions on our website [link] so that the next time you take the NE Permit Test you have the best chance of passing.
If you pass your NE Permit Test, you will receive your NE Learner's Permit. In most instances, applicants will need to maintain their Learner's Permit for 6 months before they can take their NE Driving Exam. During this time, you should complete 50 hours of behind-the-wheel training or attend and complete a driver safety course.
The NE Permit Test consists of 25 multiple questions. You will need to answer 20 of those 25 questions correctly in order to pass.
