North Carolina DMV Driver's License
There are 25 questions on the North Carolina learner’s permit knowledge test, and you must answer 20 of them correctly to achieve the 80% passing score you need to get your permit. As North Carolina has a Graduated Driver’s License (GDL) Program, there are several types of learner’s permits. The youngest age at which you may be eligible to drive a vehicle with a Limited Learner Permit, which will only allow you to drive when supervised, is 15 years old. It will cost $20, and in addition to other requirements, you will need to pass a knowledge test. There are several requirements for each phase of the GDL program, so check the 2018 North Carolina Driver’s Handbook or NCDOT website before you apply. In order to pass the knowledge test, you will need to study the handbook, and it will also help to take DMV practice tests like this one.
