Minnesota requires that you must hold a driver’s permit before moving on to a license, regardless of your age; to qualify for a driver’s permit, you’ll need to pass a written knowledge test. The 40 multiple-choice question written test is based on the 2018 Minnesota Driver’s Manual with questions on road signs, safe driving techniques and laws, and much more, and you’ll need to correctly answer a minimum of 32 questions to pass. You may apply for your permit once you’re 15 years old. You’ll need to pass the written exam, take a vision test, have parental consent, complete required classroom instruction, and be enrolled in a behind-the-wheel instruction course. Once you are 16 or older and you’ve completed at least six months with your permit, or three months if you’re over 18, you may apply for a provisional license. Your written test will cost $12 and includes two attempts; after that, it will be an additional $10 per retesting. Make sure you’re able to pass on your first attempt by using this Minnesota DVS practice test.
