Taking the permit practice test also boosts your confidence and allows you to perform much better during your real permit test at the DMV! Don't miss your chance and take this free practice permit test today!

Who offers free DMV permit tests?

Free DMV practice tests are offered by a large number of sources. Some of them are private commercial companies; others are non-profit organizations, such as the DMV. Why should you choose one or another?

Sign up and take one permit test free of charge!

Well, the first thing that worries you - are the DMV permit practice tests really free? And if you are looking at the commercial website, chances are that they are not. Most companies offer just 1 free DMV practice test and make you pay for the rest of the package if you want to take more than one DMV sample test. Furthermore, you have to sign up for a package before you can get to your free practice permit test, which means you will need to submit your name and e-mail address to the website. The e-mail address is stored in the database and will most likely be used to spam your inbox with various offers. And yes, it is completely legal because when you sign up for the driver practice test, you state that you agree to Terms and Conditions (does anyone ever read those?) and they usually state that the company may use your e-mail address to send you product updates and various offers. So basically, by taking this free DMV practice permit test, you automatically sign up for a stream of spam messages.

Permit tests for my state

Another common problem with large companies that offer free DMV permit tests is that the tests are frequently not state-specific. That means that the company creates a database of general driving-related questions and then just generates generic tests that match neither the format of your state, nor do they address state-specific driving rules and regulations. Such permit practice tests are good for evaluation of your general knowledge, but have nothing to do with the real DMV permit test.

So where do I find a free practice permit test?

By now you should be asking, “where do I get a real permit practice test”. The best place to look for those are the actual DMV websites. You can find a local DMV site through Yahoo or Google and then just browse it for permit practice tests (they are ALWAYS free on those websites).

If you have limited access to the Internet, you may also pick up a copy of a driver manual from a local DMV office, they usually have a few permit tests at the back of the book.

Some non-commercial websites also offer DMV practice tests free of charge, so you should make full use of those.

Long story short, next time you get to the website that offers a free DMV permit test, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are the permit tests really free?
  2. Are the DMV tests state-specific?
  3. Do the tests follow the DMV test format for my state?

If you can answer yes to all of these, you found yourself a good spot to take the DMV permit test!

Hi Hovo! It may seem hard now while you are reading the handbook and taking this practice permit test, but trust me, the time you invest into studying now will pay off when you go to the DMV to take your real permit test! Just dedicate an hour a day to reading the book, do this for couple of weeks and you will be a DMV champ! Good luck!

This is hard all these numbers and signs and lines... UGHHHH!!!

Hi Brinda! The answer to your question depends on what state you live in. Some states, such as Texas, require adults to take a state-approved drivers education class and then allow them to obtain a learners permit without ever taking the actual permit test, this drivers education course serves as a replacement for the test. However, most states would require you to do a learners permit test before allowing you behind the wheel and this is what this permit practice test is for - to increase your chances of passing the real exam. Let us know what state you are from and we will provide you with more details.

Can someone tell if there is a program or something for the person who is 18 years age or do they give the permit exam. means the actual Learning permit. because i have heard that being 18 you can take some driving classes and if you pass that exam you don't need to give permit test.

Why would you give up? It's not as hard as it seems and it is definitely not hopeless. Just grab a copy of your state's drivers manual, read it once or twice, then start taking this practice permit test and I am sure you will be able to pass the permit test in no time at all. The test itself is not that hard, provided you study for it. One thing that really helped me is flashcards. I printed out a bunch of permit test flashcards, posted them all over my room so they were always in front of me, and I kept checking those questions and answers all the time. Within a week I was able to answer any question from over 150 flashcards, it really worked wonders for me. Try different options: permit practice test, permit flashcards, road signs pictures, just find what's working for you and you will be fine. Good luck!

i took my test when i was old enough back in the day and and passed with flying colors and then i lost it and didnt care because i had no car to drive and of course it expired. tried retaking it again and again and keep failing i give up.

Hi Madison! Don't stress, the permit test is not too hard, provided you actually spent some time preparing for it. Not studying and trying to wing it is the biggest mistake made by those applying for a drivers license for the first time. If you read the handbook and take a practice permit test or two, you should do just fine, the book contains all permit test questions and answers and the practice test allows you to hone that newly acquired knowledge. Good luck on your knowledge exam, let us know how you did!
