FREE New Jersey MVC Practice Permit Test 2019 | NJ

NJ MVC driver's license
New Jersey MVC Driver's License.
In 2001, New Jersey instituted a Graduated Driver License Program to help ensure better driver safety. No matter your age, if you’re applying for your first driver’s license, you must first start with a restricted permit. If you’re between 16 and 17, you can get a special learner permit if you’re enrolled in a driver-training course and pass the MVC written test. If you’re over 17, you can skip the driving school but will still need to pass a written knowledge exam. The knowledge test will be comprised of 50 multiple-choice questions sourced from the 2019 New Jersey Driver’s Manual. A score of 80% or higher will be needed to pass and get your permit. Once you have passed your written exam and have your permit, you’ll be required to display two decals on your vehicle: one each on your front, and back license plates. There is no fee to take the exam, but there is a $10 charge for either type of permit and an additional $4 for the decals.
