While the South Dakota written driver’s exam is only 25 questions, if you get more than five wrong, you’ll be in some badlands. Of course many of the answers on the test are common sense, but what about those tricky ones that are written in a confusing way or just defy logic? That’s why we put together this DMV diagnostic exam made up of the 15 questions that the most South Dakotans get mixed up about. Taking this test will streamline your study time, but if you want to make sure you pass, you should check out our various practice tests and even our premium program.
