    Available DMV Practice Tests & Other Resources

    DMV.org offers practice tests and other study resources for each type of WA driver's license. Depending on the license you're applying for, you may need to take a practice test or use a study guide for any of the following:

    • WA learner's permit.
      • If you're 15 years and 6 months old (and not enrolled in Driver's Ed), you must pass a written test at the DOL to get your permit.
    • Regular driver's license.
    • Motorcycle license.
      • Covers all the rules and regulations specific to motorcycles.
    • Commercial driver's license (CDL) practice tests.
      • If you need a CDL endorsement, such as a school bus endorsement, you can take a specific practice test to get you ready for your exam.

    If you would rather learn the rules of the road from interactive videos, try taking a Driver's Prep Course. You can also print a DMV study guide to make studying easier.
