What's a driving test?

A driving test (also known as a DMV driving test, driving exam, or a driver's test) evaluates your ability to operate a motor vehicle. It's a crucial step in obtaining your driver license, consisting of both written and practical exams. The administration of driving tests and the issuance of driver licenses are typically the responsibility of the state government’s DMV. The driving test usually consists of two parts: a written knowledge test ("DMV written test") with multiple choice questions to evaluate a person's knowledge of driving-related rules and laws, and a practical behind-the-wheel test (sometimes called a road test or skill test) to assess the person's ability to drive safely. The written test covers the information found in the official Driver License Manual, including road rules, traffic laws and signs, fines, limits, and safe driving practices.

What to practice for the driving test?

Know your car

The car you're using for your test should be familiar to you, and not one that you're sitting in for the first time. You'll want to know where the controls are for everything from the lights to the windshield wipers, so you aren't frantically searching if it starts raining. The way each car's brake and gas pedals react can be different, so knowing how sensitive these are can help you avoid braking or accelerating too aggressively or too slowly. In addition to familiarizing yourself with the car's controls, checking the vehicle's history through its VIN can provide crucial information about its past.

Get plenty of practice

Like anything else, learning how to be a good driver takes lots of time behind the wheel practicing. There are things you'll learn while driving that you just can't get from reading, so it's important to log plenty of time at the wheel.

Prepare and adapt to anything

Whether it's weather conditions, an ambulance coming down the road or any other situation that could happen, you should be mentally prepared to adapt and adjust accordingly. The only true way to do this is get in those hours of practice driving, and trying to do so in a variety of weather conditions. Only getting out to drive on beautiful, sunny days will only work against you if your test lands on a rainy, overcast day.

Pay attention to driving

It sounds obvious enough, but it's easy to get distracted by what the evaluator is doing. Trying to sneak a peek at what they're writing down or their facial expressions is not a good idea, if you're hoping to walk out of there a licensed driver. Paying attention to the road, and what's happening around you is the best way to ensure that whatever the examiner is writing down is positive – and you can read all of that once your test is over anyway. Leave everything else at the door, and give your full attention to the task at hand. Whether it's schoolwork or other things happening in your life, it needs to be temporarily put to the back of your mind.

Safe driving tips

  • Drive the speed limit and maintain a constant speed.
  • Obey all road signs that you see.
  • Steer smoothly. Hold onto the steering wheel with both hands at all times.
  • Follow at a safe distance - use the 3 second rule.
  • Don’t stop too closely to the vehicle in front of you when you need to come to a stop. As a general rule, you should be able to see the tires of the car in front of you.
  • Do not cross solid lines as this will result in an instant and automatic fail.
  • Always look over your shoulder before changing lanes and be sure to use your blinker.
  • Only change lanes when you are absolutely certain that it is safe. If your test administrator asks you to change lanes, make sure that it is safe first.
  • Watch for school buses. If the bus is pulled over to the side of the road and their lights are flashing, do not pass.
  • Use your turn signals. It helps let other drivers know what you are planning on doing. Make sure that you turn your turn signal on plenty of time before you are actually going to turn

"Aced California DMV test in 24 hours"

This site definitely works. I practiced their questions for 24 hours. Went through each practice test then jumped into a bus to Santa Monica, California DMV. I passed the drivers test the first time; while the majority walked out with their faces down.

Ted Kay

"Passed Florida tests: Better than a cheat sheet"

Did my test yesterday and passed both the DMV test and driving test. Thank God for this site, I studied all the practice tests and that’s the reason I passed. This is better than a cheat sheet, time for my behind-the-wheel exam now!

Stacey Whittle

"100% permit knowledge score in 5 days"

I found out that my DMV test was going to be in five days and found this site with a simple google search. The tests were pretty helpful in familiarizing myself with the manual and the kind of questions they may ask. I got 100% on my permit knowledge test!

Elizabeth Heaney

"97% success: From practice tests to perfection"

I have gone through all the permit practice tests and passed the written test with ease in 15 min and 97% score. If you can go through these tests, there is no chance that you cannot clear the main written test.

Ramesh Reddy

"These tests truly made the difference for me"

The practice tests were extremely helpful and instructive, full of helpful pictures and explanations to help cement knowledge. I appreciated being able to review every test and question as many times as I wanted. I'm not certain I would have passed if I had just read and studied the DMV Handbook alone.

"Birthday success: From DMV failure to triumph"

I failed the DMV written test the first time I tried, but after studying the tests on this AWESOME site, I passed it with only 3 questions wrong, on my 22nd birthday. This tool ROCKED. Thanks so much!

Tom Reed
