Virginia Permit Practice Test FAQs:

How accurate are the questions on this Virginia practice test?

Our VA practice test questions are created using the most up-to-date Virginia driver’s manual, the exact same source that the VA DMV uses to write your driver’s license knowledge test. We make sure that we’re including only the latest information available to Virginia drivers, and we review our tests regularly to update them when new laws are passed.

What’s the difference between a permit test and a driver’s license test in Virginia?

A permit test in Virginia refers to the written knowledge exam that you take before you’re eligible for a road test; however, many people refer to this exam as a driver’s license test. The actual driver’s license exam is the behind-the-wheel road test that you take after you’ve practiced driving with your permit.

How do I earn my Virginia driver’s license?

To earn your VA driver’s license, you must be at least 16 years old. All drivers, regardless of age, must also first acquire a learner’s permit and hold it for a specific period of time—for adults 18 and older, at least 60 days, and for teens under 18 years old, at least 9 months. Alternatively for adult applicants, you can complete a state-approved driver’s education course while holding your permit to be able to take your road test as soon as your course is finished.

Virginia teens must also accumulate 45 hours of supervised driving practice and complete a state-approved driver education course before taking the road test.
