Prepare Smarter, Not Longer

Many people fail their DMV knowledge test because they didn’t adequately prepare for it. They mistakenly believe that studying their state’s driver manual is enough. Practice tests, on the other hand, provide you with numerous benefits that you won’t receive from studying alone.

See Your Weaknesses

While studying is important, DMV practice tests can highlight weaknesses in your knowledge. They show which areas you’ve mastered and which areas you still need to brush up on.

Improve Overall Learning

A recent study of ten of the most popular study techniques showed that practice testing improved overall learning and was the most effective way to receive a passing score. In fact, taking practice tests was more beneficial than spending the same amount of time studying!

Practice Really Does Make Perfect!

The DMV practice tests on are designed to mirror the real thing. These tests allow you to practice with multiple-choice questions that resemble those on the actual written knowledge exam. Practice tests help you determine which sections of the driver manual require your extra attention. You’ll also become accustomed to the format of the upcoming DMV written test, so you’ll be fully prepared on the big test day.

Not only do these practice tests increase your chances of passing by 73%, but they will also build your confidence and reduce test anxiety.


Instant results after every question help you stay focused and engaged. Instant gratification has been proven to improve retention.


Every correct and incorrect answer is clearly color-coded for instant recognition.


For every incorrect answer your patrons will see WHY the answer is incorrect

"I studied by looking over the driving handbook briefly and then mostly focused on taking these tests. I researched some other practice tests online; however these were the best out there that I could find and if I could do it again would just use this site. Take all of the tests until you can get a 100% and when you go in to take the test it will be a piece of cake. All of the questions were either the same as on this site or similar enough that I was able to take an educated guess based on the info that they provide after answering each question."

Designed for Your State

Each DMV practice test is designed to help make passing your knowledge test an easy and stress-free process. The multiple-choice questions are based on specialized information from your state's DMV driver manual. They test your knowledge of state-specific rules of the road so you can become a safe and responsible driver. The questions thoroughly check your understanding of your state’s laws and regulations, including road signals and signs, rules of the road, and safe handling of hazardous situations.

Take Them as Many Times as Needed

You can take these practice tests as many times as you wish. In fact, the more times you take practice tests, the greater your chances of passing the real exam with a high score. Psychological studies have shown that retention of information is higher if it’s learned over time. That’s why it’s best to start taking multiple practice tests a few weeks before the DMV knowledge exam. You can take the practice tests in any order, but most users progress from Easy Mode to Exam Mode. That way, you won’t miss any of those tricky questions about speed limits, Blood Alcohol Content (BAC), or fines. You can also take practice tests that focus specifically on road signs and road situations or on speed limits and legal penalties.

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!
