Patience Chinhondo, Kentucky

"I absolutely love this site!! It was sooooooo helpful, much more helpful than the manual. I took every practice test for my state, i missed a couple questions (mostly because of nerves, and I’m a terrible test taker), but i passed! And i really couldn’t have done it without this site. I recommended this to my boyfriend who is a couple months younger than me and will be taking his test soon. I just love how closely it resembled the test itself, and it really helped me prepare for it."

Sierra Gillespie, Kentucky

"These practices were extremely helpful! I went for my test right on my birthday nearly a month ago; I passed within ten minutes without missing a single question. It’s very easy, just keep studying!"

Kayla Slone, Kentucky

"I found the test very helpful and would recommend it to anybody that’s going for their license. First time I didn’t do so well, but the second time I got a 97%. This is a great idea for beginner drivers!"

Bernard Sharper II, Kentucky

"First off…Thank you so much! These tests helped me so much. Compared to the actual test the questions on this website were so much harder, and definitely prepared me for the test. I am so grateful and I recommend this website to everyone about to get their permit."

Jaye Powvell, Kentucky

"Such a great website! I can’t stress this enough- if you pass these tests you will pass the real thing. Thank you to whoever created this amazing site!"

Happy One, KY

"My birthday was coming up so I was looking for practice tests online. I came across this website. I just kept doing the different practice tests and practice road sign tests until my birthday.
