Preparation for the Driving License Test

The written driving test, also known as the driving (learner’s) permit test, is based on the driver handbook of your state of residency. As the manual will be the basis of your study, you need to get your hands on it as soon as possible.

In most cases, you can download it from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website. If it isn’t available online, contact the DMV and ask if you can collect it or get it by mail or email.

The handbook contains the rules and street signs you must get familiar with to pass the test and drive a car safely one day.

The driving license exam is a multiple-choice test. As some questions and answers may be worded differently from the handbook, you shouldn’t only memorize the rules but also understand them.

Can You Take the Written Driving Test Online?

In some states, such as Florida, you can take the driving permit test online. If you are under 18, a parent usually needs to be with you during the test.

Most U.S. states require you to visit a DMV center to take a written driving test. To take the test at a DMV office, you need to:

  • Schedule an appointment online
  • Provide the required documents
  • Present the payment receipt or money for the test fee

You can find the list of the necessary documentation on the website of your state’s DMV.

How Much Does the Written Driving Test Cost?

The cost of the Driving permit test depends on the state. While Alabama charges $5 and D.C. $10, other states can have higher fees. To find out how much the fee is in your state, check your local DMV’s website.

Driving Permit Test Questions and Answers

The questions on the written driving test are taken from your state’s driver handbook. These might include:

  • Traffic rules

The number of questions on the driving test varies from state to state. Some U.S. states’ tests have 20 multiple-choice questions, the others 30, 40, or more. You typically need to score 80% to pass.

The time you get to complete the test is from 20 minutes to an hour or longer. You should check the rules your state applies to know what to expect.

Is the Written Driving Test Hard?

Even though you can find all the answers in the handbook, there’s a lot of information to cover. You’ll need to go through the handbook a few times, and while studying, you should practice as much as possible.

The test differs from state to state. A study conducted by Siegfried & Jensen found Washington as the state with the most demanding driving test.

As we understand how daunting it can be to digest all those unfamiliar rules, DoNotPay has designed state-based practice tests you can use in the learning process. We offer you an efficient way to check how much knowledge you’ve acquired.

Should you encounter difficulty in some areas, check the driver handbook and revise.
