This Hawaii DMV practice test has just been updated for June 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions. Getting your learner’s permit or driver’s license in Hawaii requires passing a general knowledge test based on the information contained in the 2024 Hawaii Driver’s Manual. The test will consist of 30 multiple-choice questions and you must answer at least 24 of them correctly to receive a passing score. Some counties may offer the exam in languages other than English and some counties, such as the county of Hawaii, may offer an oral form of the test (which requires paying an extra fee). Unlike some other states, fees may vary based on the county in which you reside, so while the written test fee is $1 in Hawaii County, it is $5 in Maui County. Some counties only accept checks and cash, no debit or credit cards, so ask before you go. If you are attempting to get a learner’s permit, you must be at least 15 years and six months of age and have a parent or guardian’s permission. This Hawaii permit practice test has 40 multiple-choice questions that will help you determine if you have studied the driver’s manual enough, and which areas you may need to study more.
