DMV Practice Tests in New Hampshire
Taking a practice test is one of the best ways to learn and review information. Learn all about DMV practice tests, why you should take them, the types available, and how they can help you prepare for your written knowledge exam
What Is a DMV Practice Test?
A DMV practice test is a study aid you can use to prepare for your written knowledge test with the NH DMV. You'll see questions similar to those you'll see on your exam and can review and test yourself on key information you'll need to know.
The questions you'll find on each practice test offered by our certified partner have been created from material that was sourced directly from the New Hampshire driver handbook.
Why Take a Practice Test?
To prepare for the New Hampshire DMV written exam, the Division of Motor Vehicles' suggestion is to study the NH driver manual. However, because the manual is dense with information, it can be difficult to pick out the key points you'll need to know on exam day.
A great supplement to study for the written exam is a practice test, in which you'll see questions like those you'll see on the day of your test. When you've taken practice tests, you're more likely to have retained the relevant information and feel confident in your ability to ace your exam.
The practice tests offered for New Hampshire feature two types of studying formats:
- Test Mode. In this mode, a random test that will resemble the DMV's written test is generated and scored upon completion.
- Study Guide Mode. In this mode, you'll be asked questions and given the answers as you go, until you answer them all.
Examples of Practice Test Questions
As mentioned above, the questions you'll see on these tests are sourced directly from the DMV driver handbook. Here are a few examples:
Q. Must you always follow the speed limit?
A. No, the speed limit only indicates how fast you're allowed to drive under favorable conditions.
Q. At intersections, crosswalks and railroad crossings, you should always:
A. Look to both sides of your vehicle.
Q. What does a curb painted white mean?
A. Stop only long enough to pick up or drop off passengers or mail.
