North Carolina might be “first in flight” but you’ll be grounded without a license if you don’t pass your driver’s exam. You might think that a quick look over the manual will allow you to ace the 25 question exam, but the statistics say that only around 49% of people pass after studying the manual alone. While most answers are common sense, there are those tricky ones that may be written in a confusing way or just be counterintuitive. This DMV diagnostic features 15 questions that the most North Carolinians get goofed up on. With our instant feedback you’ll see where you have any gaps in your knowledge and then, if you have time, you can dive into our other written practice tests.
