Drivers License Practice Test

Before you can take the behind-the-wheel test needed to obtain your driver's license, you'll need to take a written knowledge test. If you're nervous about passing, consider taking a practice test first.

Benefits of Practice Tests

The benefits of taking a practice test before the DMV's actual written exam include:

  • Saving money.
    • In most states, if you fail your first written knowledge test, you'll have to pay a fee in order to retake the examination.
  • Taking your driving test sooner.
    • In most states, you must wait for some time before retaking a written knowledge test—meaning you have to wait even longer to take the behind-the-wheel exam for your driver's license.
  • Getting comfortable with the format.
    • The phrasing of the multiple-choice questions on your exam can take a while to get used to; a practice test can get you acclimated to the format of the DMV's written test.
  • Helping you study.
    • Taking a practice driver's license test can help you determine which sections of your state's driver's license manual will require some additional study time.
