Minnesota Teen Permit Practice Test Description

Are you ready to earn your Minnesota driving permit? Before receiving your permit, you must complete several steps and pass a knowledge exam. Hit the road running with our MN permit practice test.

Why Our MN Permit Practice Test Can Help Prepare You

Many people consider earning a drivers license a significant milestone on the path to adulthood. In Minnesota, obtaining your instruction permit is a critical first step. If you are a teen between the ages of 15 and 17, you will need to have at least 30 hours of documented classroom driving education and be enrolled in upcoming hands-on driving classes before you can apply for your instruction permit. This formal instruction component is waived for individuals 18 or older. However, all applicants seeking their instruction permits must fill out a license application, pay the required fee, show the correct identification and undergo a vision screening. You must also complete the DVS permit test. Undoubtedly the most nerve-wracking part of the process for applicants, this knowledge exam evaluates an individual's awareness of Minnesota's traffic laws and his ability to understand common road signs.

Everything that you will need to know to pass the teen permit knowledge test is included in the Minnesota DVS Driver's Handbook Manual. Get ready to tackle the exam by studying the manual and then reviewing what you have read with our MN permit practice test. Designed to mimic the actual DVS permit test, our practice test allows you to quiz yourself on the information that you've learned and to become comfortable with the types of questions you'll face on the actual test. Feel free to repeat the practice test as many times as you would like. In fact, we recommend that you take it until you feel confident in your understanding of the material and your ability to pass the test. Still nervous? Explore our Minnesota drivers license blog for more tips on prepping for the test and driving safely.

Once you are ready, schedule your DVS permit test at a convenient driver's examination station. The test is made up of 40 multiple choice and true or false questions. Answer at least 32 questions correctly to earn a passing score. Once you have passed the test and completed the necessary paperwork, you will have earned your instruction permit. This permit allows you to drive while under the supervision of a licensed adult.
