FREE Tennessee DMV Driving Practice Test 2019 | TN

TN DMV driver's license
Tennessee DMV Driver's License.

This practice test will help you prepare for the knowledge portion of the official Tennessee driving test which features 30 questions. You must answer 24 correctly to achieve a passing score of 80%. You can take the exam on a computerized testing machine at one of Tennessee’s Driver License Service Centers. The exam is broken into four sections: 25% is about intoxicating substances, 25% about traffic signs and signals, 25% -- about Tennessee’s rules of the road, and the last 25% is devoted to rules for safe driving. Once you pass the DMV test, you can receive your learner’s permit after paying a fee of $10.50 if you are under 18 and passing a vision screening. The permit is then valid for 12 months. Tennessee has a Graduated Driver License (GDL) law. This means there are 3 stages before you receive your driver’s license: a learner’s permit at 15; an intermediate restricted license at either 16 or no sooner than 180 days after your learner’s permit; an intermediate unrestricted license at 17 or one year after your intermediate restricted license; then your full driver’s license at age 18. There are several other requirements for each licensing stage, which you can find in the 2019 Tennessee Comprehensive Driver License Manual.
