You’ll have 20 multiple-choice questions testing your knowledge of road signs, rules of the road, and safe driving laws. To pass the knowledge portion of the DMV driving test, you must answer 14 questions correctly, including at least two of four questions on road signs. There is no additional fee if you need to retake the DMV test. You may want to make a reservation online to take your NYS permit test in one of the counties associated with a larger metro area. Once you pass, your learner’s permit will be valid for 5 years. If you’re a US citizen, you can also apply for an enhanced learner permit that can be used instead of a passport to cross into Canada or Mexico. This DMV practice test will help you succeed as just like the actual knowledge test, it draws information directly from the 2018 New York Driver’s Manual.
