This DMV Practice Test will help you prepare for the official North Carolina Drivers License Test. Whether you're new to the state or getting your first license, you'll need to know this information.

Pass the North Carolina Drivers License Practice Test

The first step to obtain a North Carolina drivers license is passing the written test. You'll also have to pass a road sign recognition test. North Carolina's road sign recognition test is less strenuous than in most states, and it only requires you to correctly identify a few well-known road signs. The North Carolina written drivers license test currently consists of 25 different multiple choice questions. A score of 80 percent is needed in order to pass the test, so you will have to answer at least 20 questions correctly. The test covers general knowledge of driver safety and traffic laws. There will also be at least one question on the test covering road signs.

The written driver's test needs to be taken by new drivers in the state and drivers that have let their license expire for more than 60 days. Taking a NC DMV practice test will give you confidence going into the actual exam.

North Carolina Drivers License Practice Test Description

The practice tests consist of 20 multiple choice questions. Once you answer the question, you will immediately be shown the correct answer. This is the perfect way to remember what areas you need to study closely. Since the questions on the practice tests simulate the questions found on the real test, there is no better way to prepare. The immediate feedback provided by the practice test will allow you to focus your study time on your problem areas. The North Carolina driver's manual is also a great study resource and is available for download from our site.
