South Dakota Teen Permit Practice Test Description

Getting your South Dakota driving permit is your first step on the road to driving freedom. Our SD permit practice test will help you prepare for your actual examination and even your on-road test.

Successfully Begin a Lifetime of Driving

Most likely, if you are considering taking the DPS permit test soon, you are a teenager aspiring to get out on the road for the first time. However, the same test is used for anyone who has never held a driver's license in any state. Taking this test is exciting, but you may be fraught with nerves because have no idea what to expect or what knowledge you will need to have to pass the examination.

However, with the right study habits and resources, you can be confident that you will pass the permit test the first time you take it. Our permit practice test is designed to do just that. You will find an array of questions on our test that will quiz you in every area of driving, including safety, licensing, rules of the road and driving emergencies. Everything you need to know can be found in the South Dakota DPS Driver's Manual, which you should read thoroughly. Our practice test features questions that are randomly selected; each time you take the test, you will get a variety of questions that will be different from what you saw the previous time. This will help you deal with any nerves you may have and face your real examination with confidence.

Not only will our practice test help you pass your permit test confidently, but also it will help you as you head out on the road for the first time. Even though you have certainly seen road markings and traffic signals for many years, everything can look different when you are behind the wheel. However, the questions on our tests will cover the knowledge base that you will need to be a safe and responsible driver. Another test that you might consider taking is the Road Signs and Signals Test, which covers many signs that you see beside the road while you are driving and parking. This test will help you as you get your permit and later when you test for a driver's license.
