To pass the DMV written test in order to get your instruction permit, you need to achieve an 83% passing score by answering 38 questions correctly out of the 46 questions on the test, if you are under 18. If you are over 18, the test will only have 36 questions, but you must answer the same percentage of questions correctly. Questions will be multiple-choice with three possible answers and presented on a touchscreen computer at an automated DMV Touchscreen Terminal (TST) for fast and efficient scoring. If you’re between 15 ½ and 17 ½, you’ll also need to provide proof that you’re enrolled in a driver education class. If you’re over 17 ½, you are not required to take a driving course. Your instruction permit will be $33, and testing is not allowed to start after 4:30 to give you ample time to take your exam before the DMV closes.
