DMV Practice Tests in Delaware

SUMMARY: DMV Practice Tests in Delaware

The more you study, the more prepared you'll be to pass your DMV written exam. Learn all about practice tests, how you can benefit from them, and the types of practice tests and study materials available.

What Is a DE DMV Practice Test?

When you go to get your license with the DE Division of Motor Vehicles, you'll be expected to take a written exam (in addition to your other licensing requirements).

A practice test is a study helper that has been designed to help you prepare to take this written knowledge test at the Delaware DMV.

Each question featured on the practice test has been developed from information taken from the Delaware driver handbook.

Why Take a Practice Test?

The DMV suggests studying the Delaware driver manual to prepare for a written test. While you should study the manual, it can be difficult to review key points while going through the entire handbook.

A practice test lets you practice recalling pertinent information you are likely to see on the exam. When you take practice exams, you're more likely to:

  • Learn the information quicker.
  • Retain it longer.

For optimal learning, each test offered from our approved partner features two types of formats for studying:

  • Test Mode. In test mode, you'll be given a full exam like you'd see at the DMV, and your test will be scored once you complete all the questions.
  • Study Guide Mode. In study guide mode, you will see the correct answers to your questions as you answer them, so you can learn and review as you go.

Types of Practice Tests

Each practice test is provided in an online format; however, any exam may be printed and studied when you're offline.

You have the choice between the basic practice test and a more in-depth test with double the questions for extra practice.

See below for the various types of practice tests available in Delaware.

  • Permit Practice Tests. These tests were created for new drivers seeking to apply for their Delaware learner's permit and cover all the basic rules of the road that will show up on the written permit test.
