Here’s What Other Learners from MT are Saying:
"Thank you very much for this wonderful website. It is very helpful!"Alma Ruth Villa Chavez, Montana
"I had to take my permit test twice to pass it! the first time i missed 8 (you can only miss 6 to pass) and the second time i passed with only missing two. Honestly if you ever fail your test remember you will get it next time!! I was embarrassed of failing the test, but who cares?! i was so frustrated after failing that i thought “I am never going to drive!” and “Why bother?”. But this site helped me out. The Manual in my state has so much information it is hard to know what to study, how to study, and it is very overwhelming. I really appreciate having a free site such as this to study!"Katie V, Montana
"Ok so I signed up for the Montana Learners Permit Test just yesterday and while I had a drivers ED book to study, I really didn’t have any way to get ready for the actual questions that I was going to be asked. So I take and search for places to help me practice for the test for free and I ran into this site. Once I found it I started taking the practice tests before it was time for me to go. I would really like to thank you for helping me pass my very first test with only one wrong answer. THANK YOU. If any one needs to have a place to study then I will refer this site to them. Again Thank you."Jordan Neff, Montana
