What Is a Practice Test?

A practice test is a study assistant that will help you prepare to take a written test by presenting information you're likely to see on your test in the same format.

Each question featured on the Division of Motor Vehicles practice tests provided by our approved partner is based from information taken from the Alaska Driver Handbook.

Why Take a Practice Test?

Although the DMV suggests studying the Alaska driver manual to prepare for a written test, it is difficult to review key points and test your knowledge using only the manual.

That's why it's a good idea to look into taking a practice test. You can quickly test yourself and see if you've retained the information from the manual. These practice tests are designed to help you cement the information into your mind so you'll have full confidence that you'll know the information when you go into your exam.

The practice tests offered from our certified partner also have two types of formats for studying:

  • Study Guide Mode. In this mode, you will be given immediate feedback as your answer each question, so you can learn as you go.
  • Test Mode. In this mode, a full test will be generated and your score will be given after you answer all the questions.

What Types of Practice Tests Are Offered?

Practice tests are based online, but they can also be printed and studied in line when you're at the DMV. You have the option of choosing the basic practice test or a more comprehensive test.
