DMV Practice Tests in Vermont
Learn all about VT DMV practice tests, the various types of practice tests available in Vermont, and how using a practice will help prepare you to take the written exam at the DMV.
What Are DMV Practice Tests?
A DMV practice test is an exam that you can use to prepare for your written exam at the Department of Motor Vehicles. The idea behind these study tools is that the more you practice, the more prepared you'll be and, in turn, more likely to succeed on your first try.
Multiple types of practice tests are available to choose from, depending on your personal needs and the type of license you're seeking.
Why Take a Practice Test?
When preparing for your exam, you should start with the VT driver's manual; however, this isn't the most effective tool to review information and test your knowledge.
A practice test will help you discover which areas you know well and which areas you need to review further.
With an online practice test, you'll solidify your knowledge of the relevant information and head into your exam with the confidence to ace it.
The practice tests offered for Vermont feature two types of studying formats:
- Study Guide Mode. In this mode, you'll study the information by seeing questions and getting the correct answers immediately. In this way, you learn as you complete the exam
- Test Mode. In test mode, full-length tests are randomly created and then scored when the test is completed. Once the test is complete, you'll see all the answers.
Examples of Questions
The questions will be taken from the appropriate DMV handbook for the type of license you are seeking. A few examples you may find on your standard driver's license practice test are shown below:
