NH Permit Practice Test
A New Hampshire teen must be 16 years old to earn a driving permit. After completing your drivers education course, take our free practice tests before you apply for your teen permit.
The New Hampshire driving permit for teens between the ages of 16 and 21 is called a youth operator license. This is a restricted license that allows limited operation of a vehicle. As a teen driver, you must learn and obey the rules of the road, or you will risk having your permit suspended. You can take our NH permit practice test to help you learn the laws of operating a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.
Preparing for Your New Hampshire Teen Permit Tests
Teen drivers must pass a vision screening, a written knowledge exam and a road test to get their New Hampshire driving permits. The written DMV permit test has 40 multiple-choice questions. Our free practice tests also contain multiple-choice questions that cover the same topics as the written exam. There are several versions of the NH permit practice test, and we recommend that you take each test several times to reinforce your understanding of the topics. You may also take our signs and signals practice test to learn to recognize the road signs used in New Hampshire.
The written exam will include questions on driving laws and regulations. You will see questions about operating a vehicle and handling emergency situations while driving. As a teen driver, you must understand your responsibilities to drive safely and maintain your vehicle. Strict laws prohibit driving under the influence of any substance, so the test may also have several questions about drugs and alcohol.
You will want to have a good understanding of all the information in the NH drivers manual before you take your exam for your New Hampshire teen permit. When you answer questions in the practice test, take time to read the feedback we provide. We will explain the correct answer and point you to the corresponding page in the manual for more information.
