Make sure you have all the right paperwork in hand before you go to the DMV with our guide, and ensure test success the first time around, with our resources and materials. Practice exams are available for motorcyclists, commercial vehicle drivers, or standard car operators, and include many questions that are nearly identical to the ones on the official test. Nervous about taking exams? The resources here include a marathon practice test as well as tests that are so close to the real thing you will begin to think a DMV sprouted up in your living room.

NH DMV driver's license

Hitting the road in the Granite State over the White Mountains towards Manchester, with a load of machine parts is an American dream. But you’ll need a New Hampshire commercial driver’s license (CDL) to fulfill it. This process starts with $60 for a license application for any class of vehicle. Then you’ll face the tests – that’s where we can help. We have sample tests that perfectly mimic the real thing with 70 question exams for Class A vehicles and 50 for classes B and C. Questions are based off the official CDL manual so you will be prepared when you go to the DMV. We also have cheat sheets for endorsements like passenger and school busses, doubles/triples, tank vehicles, hazardous materials, or air brake restriction removal. Get started below!

Here’s What Other Learners From NH Are Saying:

"This is the absolute best study tool for the written test! I passed the test easily by doing each practice test on this site every night before I went to the DMV and once I did the questions were either very similar or the same as the real test questions. I am so happy I used this to study from instead of reading the manual over and over. This is much more helpful because it is in the same exact form as the DMV permit test. Thank you for having this website available, you rock!!!!"

Kayla F., Manchester, New Hampshire

"I cleared my exam today. The above tests are really helpful but just going through it without reading manual will not help. One has to go through the manual at least once and note important points. Again the test will boost your confidence."

Naresh C., Nashua, New Hampshire

"This is really worth to go through this site. Honestly saying 65 % to 70 % Questions at DMV written test are based on the Questions at this site"

Meena C., Concord, New Hampshire
