This Montana MVD practice test has just been updated for May 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 MT Driver Handbook. To get your license in Montana, you’ll need to pass a written knowledge test of 33 multiple-choice questions and answer at least 27 of the 33 questions correctly to achieve a passing score of 80% or better. The written exam will cover questions regarding driving under the influence, speed limits, license regulations, pedestrian safety laws, and more. To take the exam, you will need to provide proof of identity, residence, parental consent if you’re under 18, and a $5 testing fee. You may begin the licensing process as early as 14 ½ years old while enrolled in a traffic education course; all minors must participate in the state’s graduated license program. After passing the written test, you must complete at least 50 hours of supervised driving, including 10 hours of night driving, while holding your learner license. This Montana DMV practice test will help you prepare for your knowledge exam, as it uses the same information and question format as the real exam.
