Here’s What Learners from Alabama are Saying:

"when I took my test I was surprised to find these questions on the real test. Make sure to download the AL driver app if you use iPhone, all the questions on it were on the real test. For real. Good luck."

Nelly Harcourt Ronel, AL

"I’ve failed the test 6 times… yes 6 times. But I went across this site, studied for a WEEK and passed with only missing a few questions! I was starting to give up after a while, but when I came across these practice tests I knew there was a possibility of passing. I guess 7th time’s the charm! Thank you so much!"

Sierra Gregory, AL

"This website is perfect for the test. Every question that I saw on the test was on here. I passed my permit test with flying colors (I got every question right). I highly recommend you take the test on here."

Jasmine Johnson, AL

"I got my permit book 3 weeks before my birthday. I was told about your website and took ALL of your practice tests about 100000 times each. It only took me 11 minutes to take my test, and pass with flying colors !!! "

Megan Wamble, Alabama

"I took the permit practice tests on this site over and over for about 2 weeks straight and when it came time to take the actual test I aced it, I only missed two questions. I hadn’t picked up the driver’s manual book at all, I only used the online tests and I must say that it was really helpful!"

Shaneka Johnson, Alabama

"I just want to say thank you to Driving-Tests.org. The free permit practice tests were very very helpful. I took my test today and I passed and I got permit just right after the test. Thank you very much. "

Wilma Munding, Alabama

"This is a wonderful site that has helped me to train students preparing to get their permit. As for my students, the success rate went from 50% to 98% in just two years. Could not have found a better way to support classroom lectures."

Steve Almond, Alabama

"Thanks to this website I got my driver license yesterday. The practice test on here was very helpful, almost identical to the test. I will refer anybody who’s going to take the test soon. Thanks again for this site. :) "

Diana Vazquez, Alabama

"As I went to take my permit test today, I was incredibly nervous, but as I began to take the test, I realized that the questions were pretty much exactly like the ones on this site. Without the help of this site, I would have remained a nervous wreck and would have probably failed."

Keana Jones, Alabama

"The practice tests are awesome, and yes – I passed. I GOT MY DL’S!"

Olive Turner, Alabama

"Thanks to this website I passed my test on the 3rd try. Like they say third time is a charm!"

  • Is a physical required in order to get a permit in Alabama?

    A physical examination isn’t required when getting your license in Alabama. Keep in mind however, if you are afflicted with a mental or physical impairment, an examiner officer has the authority to deem you unfit for driving.
  • Is a vision test necessary when I go to apply for my Alabama driver’s license?

    Of course it is. You must be tested on how well you can see. If you wear corrective lenses, you should wear them during the exam.
  • Where do I get a photo for my Alabama driver’s license taken?

  • Do I need to put up hair when taking driver’s license photo?

    You may wear your hair the same way you would normally wear it; however, it should not be covering your face or your eyes. The purpose of the photo is to be able to identify who you really are. Besides, you would not want to hide that amazing face!

    Look straight into the camera and keep a calm and relaxed face!
  • I have a question that’s not answered above. What do I do?
