New Mexico Teen Permit Practice Test Description

You must pass a number of tests in order to receive a New Mexico teen permit. The best way to prepare is to take free practice tests as often as necessary until you know the material.

How Taking Practice Tests Helps

After reading through the MVD handbook, you may take our NM Permit Practice Test as many times as you need to be ready for the official test. The tests consist of a random series of multiple-choice questions taken from the drivers manual. The practice tests are not timed, and you may take them as often as you wish.

To obtain a New Mexico driving permit, you must pass the vision and written exams in addition to the the road test. The easiest way to pass the written exams is to know the material. This useful and important information gives you the tools to be a safe, responsible driver. In order to pass your driving test at the MVD, you must answer 80 percent of the questions on the test correctly. Many people believe they are familiar with the material but do not respond well to the pressure of taking tests. Answering practice test questions without stress helps you prepare for the real thing when the time comes. Taking the practice tests repeatedly builds your confidence, and that will help you be successful on the day of the test.

Besides knowing basic driving skills, recognizing signals and signs and understanding the rules of parking, a safe driver also needs to know what to do in an emergency and how to adjust to road conditions. You'll need to understand how to read pavement markings and how to handle intersections and traffic islands. The MVD Permit Test will help you absorb all the information you need to know. Practice makes perfect, and you are more likely to make your dream of driving come true if you study hard. You can also take advantage of our other resources to further hone your knowledge and skills as a future driver.
