North Carolina Teen Permit Practice Test Description

In order to receive your North Carolina driving permit as a teenager, you must first pass the DMV permit test. This is the first step to obtaining your actual North Carolina driver's license. The best way to prepare for the test is to take the NC permit practice test repeatedly until you feel completely comfortable with the material.

How Our NC Permit Practice Test Helps You Succeed

Nothing can make you feel like you are being propelled into adulthood quite like beginning the process of learning to drive. You aren't likely to find it difficult to pass the DMV permit test if you properly prepare yourself by studying and taking advantage of our free practice test. You can take the practice test as many times as you want with absolutely no charge. The practice test will also help you save money as there is a fee applied each time you take the actual DMV permit test. By preparing with the free practice test, you most likely won't need to take the actual test more than once.

The practice test will help you be comfortable when it's time for the actual test because you will already know what to expect. While the questions on the actual test won't be exactly the same as the questions you are asked on the practice test, you will have a good understanding of what you need to know and how the questions will be asked. You will be asked 20 random questions and must score a minimum of 80 percent to pass.

While the practice test is devoted to driving rules, you will also be tested on your knowledge of road signs and signals. You can access both the road signs and signals practice test and the actual NC Permit practice test.
