Iowa Teen Permit Practice Test Description

When looking to obtain a Iowa driving permit, it's important to note that you will need to pass a few required tests. Our IA permit practice test can simplify this process.

Tips and Techniques for Passing the DOT Permit Test

Before you receive an Iowa teen permit, you should know that the Iowa DOT requires that you take and pass multiple tests. While this might seem like frustrating, these tests become much easier to pass with the proper study and preparation. The two tests that you will be provided with include a written examination and a driving skills one. The written examination covers a section on driving regulations throughout Iowa and another section on road signs and traffic signals. You should know that our IA permit practice test has been made to replicate that of the written portion of the DOT permit test. As such, many of the questions that you will see on the practice test will be very similar to those that you will find on the permit test. This is done in order to give you a deeper knowledge of what you will encounter when taking the permit test.

The permit test itself contains a large number of multiple choice questions with four possible answers to choose from, the same as the IA permit practice test. These questions cover a wealth of different driving regulations material, such as the age you must be to take a driver education course and what happens if your drivers license happens to expire during active duty with the military. All of this information can be found directly within the Iowa Drivers Manual under Section 2 that starts on page 13.

The permit practice test will give you 25 questions to answer. To pass, 20 or more of these need to be answered correctly. Even if you happen to fail once or twice, you have the ability to take this quiz as many times as you see fit, which is highly recommended. If you are looking for further preparation for the traffic signs portion of the written test, take our Iowa Road Signs and Signals Practice Test.
