  • 15 ¾Minimum age to apply

This Maryland MVA practice test has just been updated for October 2023 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2023 MD Driver Handbook. As part of meeting the requirements to get your Maryland learner’s permit or driver’s license, you must take a knowledge test and correctly answer 22 out of 25 questions, to achieve the required passing score of 85%. Once you pass the knowledge test, a vision test, and meet any other requirements, you can receive your learner’s instructional permit. This is for any driver of any age who has not had a noncommercial driver’s license before. You must be 15 years and nine months old, at least, to apply for your learner’s instructional permit, and once you receive it, it is valid for a maximum of two years. The fee for a learner’s instructional permit is $50. This cost includes the conversion to a full license when the time comes, so you will not have to pay again. This practice test will help succeed on the Maryland knowledge test as it contains information straight from the 2023 Maryland Driver’s Manual.
