Rhode Island Driver’s License Practice Test FAQs:

What’s on the Rhode Island driver’s license knowledge test?

The Rhode Island written knowledge test includes questions from your Rhode Island DMV driver’s handbook. Be prepared to answer questions on traffic laws and speed limits, sharing the road, right-of-way regulations, traffic signs, and more.

How does this practice test compare to the actual Rhode Island DMV license test?

Our Rhode Island driver’s license practice test is built using the information found in Rhode Island’s statutes and the RI DMV driver’s handbook, which is specific to Rhode Island driving laws. The questions on your practice test are the same as what you can expect to see on your DMV driver’s license knowledge exam. The Rhode Island DMV often switches up its exact questions from year to year, but the information you’re tested on doesn’t change.

How do I earn my Rhode Island driver’s license?

To earn your Rhode Island driver’s license, you must be at least 16 ½ years old and acquire a limited instructional permit (commonly known as a learner’s permit). If you’re under 18 years old, you must first complete an approved Driver’s Ed course before earning your permit, and you must hold your permit for at least 6 months while you complete at least 50 hours of supervised driving practice. Once you’ve passed a behind-the-wheel road test, you can earn your limited provisional license, which you’ll keep until you’re 17 years old.

if you’re 18 or older, you must only hold your learner’s permit for 30 days before you’re eligible to take your road test for your unrestricted driver’s license.
