Washington Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What’s on the Washington permit knowledge test?

The Washington written knowledge test includes information covered within the Washington driver's handbook. You’ll need to know how to share the road with other vehicles and pedestrians, what to do in emergencies, the current Indiana traffic regulations, how to safely execute various types of turns, and more.

Does this practice test include the same questions I’ll see on the DOL permit test?

Each question on our Washington permit practice test derives from the actual WA DOL driver’s handbook. The information you’re studying is specific to Washington traffic regulations, which means the questions on your practice test are the same as what you can expect to see on your DOL permit exam. The Washington DOL 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 Washington driver’s license?

To earn your Washington State driver’s license, you must be at least 16 years old. If you’re under 18 years old, you must acquire a learner’s permit and hold it for at least 6 months while you practice driving, as well as complete a driver education course, before you can take your road test for your Washington license.

if you’re 18 or older, a learner’s permit is optional to obtain your license, but it’s required if you plan to practice driving on Washington roads in any way. You must be fully prepared to pass both the written knowledge exam and the behind-the-wheel road test.
