Hawaii Driver’s Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What’s on the Hawaii learner’s permit knowledge test?

The Hawaii written knowledge test features information pulled directly from your Hawaii DMV driver’s handbook. Be prepared to answer questions on traffic laws and speed limits, sharing the road, right-of-way regulations, traffic signs, and more.

What is the difference between a Hawaii permit test and a license exam?

The Hawaii permit test is the written knowledge test you’ll take to earn your permit. However, depending on when you apply for your first driver’s license, the written exam could also double as your driver’s license knowledge test—adults 18 and older aren’t required to first hold a permit in Hawaii, though you MUST get one if you want to practice driving at all before your road test.

Your main license exam is your behind-the-wheel road test—all Hawaii drivers must pass this skills test to earn a full driver’s license in the state.

How do I earn my Hawaii driver’s license?

To earn your Hawaii driver’s license, you must be at least 16 years old. If you’re under 18 years old, you must also first complete an approved Driver’s Ed course and earn an instruction permit before taking your road test for your driver’s license. You must hold your permit for at least 6 months while you complete your required supervised driving practice.

if you’re 18 or older, an instruction permit is optional, but one is required if you wish to practice driving in any way before taking your practical road skills exam to earn your full driver’s license.
