Rachel Tay, Washington

"I had been trying to study from the Washington State Driving Booklet, but I was never able to remember anything from what I was reading. However, once I found this website I was able to learn the material with constant feedback and learn everything significantly faster. I passed my test!! Thank to this website I was able to skip pass expensive classes and achieve good results! "

Brennan Brun, Washington

"I took the test three hours ago, and passed with 22/25. Thanks to this website because I didn’t read the handbook at all!!! Instead I did all the tests until I could score at least 24/25 in the test simulator. Thanks again and good luck to everyone!"

Yuyan Shui, Washington

"These tests were extremely helpful. I took all of them until I could pass them multiple times with 100%. I passed the knowledge test, 23/25 correct. I didn’t even read the book all the way through. But you definitely should, then come here for the practice tests! I learned a lot from the tests alone. Thanks!"

Eva Vargas, Washington

"Words can not explain how helpful this site was to me, However my experience can. I’ve studied the practice test online for a week straight, the answers i got incorrect i studied more. I won’t suggest that you have a photographic memory because its not the exact same but its definitely similar… guess that why it’s called the simulator lol. Anyway i went to go and take the test I’ve passed and gained a learners permit, i know you can do the same with just a little practice on this website. Hope this helps you like it has helped me."

Telia Withers, Washington

"I needed to take my permit test for the first time so I used these practice tests to study and I passed with 91%. I just took all the tests available in my state a couple times and I was able to retain all the information. This website was certainly helpful and I really do recommend it. I will be showing this website to my younger siblings when it is their turn to take the permit test. Thanks!"

Alex R, Washington

"I knew from the moment I walked into the room that I was going to pass the written test. After many hours of studying the online tests and getting all 100s, I knew I had to get my permit. And I did! Thank you, Driving-tests.org!"

Adam Smith, Washington

"The WA DOL practice tests were very helpful to ace my first time driver’s license written test. I highly recommend it for those who want to be familiar with American road rules."
