"I passed my written test!!! Yayyyyyyyyy!! Thanks so much, This website is amazing and really really helped me a lot. I had only 2 days to prepare.

"This site, all the tests and the manual helped a lot. I passed the written section of my exam yesterday. The most valuable and difficult was the Fines and Limits test and the related section in the Manual. I even made a spreadsheet with all the consequences of DUI and memorized it. Without it I would not have passed. Highly recommend the tests to anyone who is taking the exam in Maine."Galina D., South Portland, Maine
