Here’s what other learner drivers from SC are saying:

"Got my permit, only missed 2! These practice tests really help, just basic knowledge. Almost exactly like the real test."

Kelsey Chong, Irmo, South Carolina

"I used this site the day before I had to take my test and I passed my test with a perfect score and I only skipped 3 questions. I recommend this site because if I had taken the test using just the book I would have failed. The questions on the quizzes are almost exactly like the ones on the test. I’m sooo grateful that I found this site before I took my test!"

Alexis McClellan, South Carolina

"I have this website to thank! If I hadn’t practiced on this for weeks beforehand I wouldn’t have passed! My handbook was confusing and I couldn’t figure out what it wanted me to memorize, but this website was easy to understand. I actually had fun while practicing! If it wasn’t for this site I wouldn’t have passed with a perfect score, I’ve recommended this site to all of my friends, who have also passed thanks to practicing on here. So glad I found this place when I did."

Elizabeth M, South Carolina

"Thanks to your tests I knew every single one of the answers to the permit test. This is a great site."

Brandon McMillan, South Carolina

"I used this website to study for the SC permit test. I tried a couple of different sites, but quickly determined this was the best one. I really like the short and marathon test options. After reading the SC driver’s manual I practiced on this website and had no trouble passing the test today!"

Kim Moore, South Carolina

"I don’t usually write reviews, but I got my permit today!!! I only missed 1!!!! I am not kidding, the questions are the same, it’s not common sense, but it’s exactly the same ideas as the permit tests on this site. I recommend taking the practice tests if you want to pass!!!"

Sarah Marsh, South Carolina

"Amazing, I didn’t even read the reader’s manual, I only used this site and I passed my permit test on the first try! Although I don’t recommend not reading your handbook, this site definitely covers most of it!"

Kayla Hicks, South Carolina

"I studied the book word for word and failed the first test. I studied off this website, and DIDNT MISS A SINGLE QUESTION ON MY SECOND TRY. Truly loved this website, and recommended to alot of friends of mine. (This was back in August)"

Monica Daniel, South Carolina

"Well I didn’t really want to take the permit test. I couldn’t remember anything that I read in the book and had no idea what kind of questions the test would have. So I went online and found this site. I took all 5 permit practice tests and today passed my real test and got my permit. I’m so happy and if it wasn’t for this site I would have failed for sure."

Dakota Taylor, SC

"This website helped me so much with studying the handbook as well because I passed the first time round. I would recommend this website to anyone who wanted more help before they take their permit test."

Billie Wiley, SC

"Thanks to this site I passed the test with 6 wrong. Recommend this site over the book."

Mauldin, South Carolina

"I was reading the manual, but I couldn’t remember much from it for the life of me, then I found this site, and everything got so much simpler! It’s such a good site to use. I got my permit!"

T Smith, South Carolina

"I took all the practice tests for my state & passed my permit test! These are really helpful and easy to remember! I recommended this to one of my friends who’s going to pass her test when she goes to try for hers!"

Chantelle Richardson, South Carolina

"This really helped me. Read the book two years before then I just was taking these test and I only missed 2 questions on my actual test. This is so helpful, be glad it’s free."

Jonathan G., South Carolina

"After studying from this website for about two-three weeks, I PASSED my permit test on THE FIRST TRY. :) I was so happy. The test had everything I learned from this site. Trust me, this is the best way to pass your learners permit test. Toss the book out, really. :) "

Cori Adair, South Carolina

"The very best place to study for your learner’s permit. Today I took the test and passed with only 1 wrong. I’d highly recommend it."

Neeraj Patel, SC

"I went to take my permit test today. I didn’t exactly pass with flying colors, in fact I was one wrong answer away from failing. But if I didn’t find this site and take the tests I wouldn’t have just failed the test, I would have bombed it so badly it wouldn’t even be funny. This site made the difference between passing and failing for me. The questions were a lot like the ones on the test, though some of them were tricky questions, so yeah. This site was very helpful in many ways. It was much more useful than the handbook, which was long and boring and I had trouble memorizing everything in there besides the signs."

Kelly, South Carolina
