New York Drivers License Practice Test Description

Getting ready for the New York drivers license test is easier with a NY DMV practice test. This helpful aid is a good gauge of your ability to pass the official test. As you can imagine, New York road laws are more extensive than in some other areas of the country. A DMV practice test, therefore, focuses specifically on the New York exam, paying close attention to the DMV manual. You'll find that the format, questions, answers and subject matter are deliberately similar to the real test. Multiple choice answers, while sometimes helpful, may also seem too similar or even misleading. The real test has a similar slant, making it essential that test-takers study their manual. Questions will focus on many different, albeit related, subjects. You'll be expected to know the special rules for junior permits and the legal ramifications of traffic tickets, car crashes and driving while under the influence.

You will need to understand the responsibilities of vehicle ownership in New York. Another major subject will be defensive driving. This can relate to everything from dealing with aggressive drivers to driving safely at night. Of course, it will cover the correct use of safety systems such as seatbelts and airbags. There are usually questions on dangers such as drowsy driving and phone use. Obviously, the test will not cover every subject, but it is best to know as much information as possible. Some answers require memorization of details from the New York DMV manual. Other questions will cite a specific situation and expect you to correctly apply your knowledge.

Studying Tips

It is common for first-time test takers to fail the test for their New York drivers license. Yet this is avoidable if general studying is followed by targeted studying. General studying simply means reading and studying the manual. After you've done that, targeted studying starts with identifying what you know and what you don't. Taking a DMV practice test will help you see the gaps in your knowledge. After each question, you'll find out the right answer and a page number for that subject. Studying those pages of the manual should improve your score. For more information, go to Ten Tips to Pass Your DMV Test.
