Preparing Teens for their North Carolina Driving Permit Test

In the state of North Carolina, there are many rules that apply to teen drivers which do not apply to more experienced motorists. Knowing these rules is essential to teen driving safety and is a requirement to acquire a North Carolina Teen permit. It is also important that parents of teens are well-versed in these regulations and that they establish a driving privileges contract with their teen to ensure that they follow all special regulations.

We have made preparation for the North Carolina permit test easy by putting all of the necessary North Carolina Driver's Handbooks on our site. We also provide a NC permit practice test. Our NC permit practice test is based on the written North Carolina DMV permit test. Our test consists of 20 questions, and users are encouraged to take it as many times as they need to feel comfortable before they apply for their North Carolina permit. This test is fully navigable; each question may be skipped and returned to later if the user does not know the correct answer. It is also possible to navigate backwards in order to change an answer to a previous question. After answering a question, the test taker is presented with the correct answer and a reference to the page in the North Carolina DMV Drivers Handbook on which the answer can be found. Once the test is completed, your teen will be able to view every question contained in the 20 question quiz along with the correct answers. If they have received a failing score, they can easily retake the quiz by clicking the retry button at the bottom of the page.

We have made the North Carolina DMV Drivers Handbook available on our site for easy reference, as well as several other resources that will help your teen prepare to receive their North Carolina Driving permit.
