This Washington DOL practice test has just been updated for October 2023 and covers 25 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2023 WA Driver Handbook. If you’re 15 ½ or older and ready to get started towards your WA driver’s license, you will need to pass a knowledge test that is based on the driver’s guide, as well as a vision test, and also pay a small testing fee. The DOL written test questions will be multiple-choice, covering road signs, traffic laws, and safe driving practices. There will be 40 questions on your exam, and you’ll need at least 32 questions answered correctly to pass and to be eligible for your driver’s permit. Your test can be taken at your local DOL by computer or at a driving school if you’re currently enrolled, and the cost will be $25 plus an additional test fee, which will vary by location. Make sure to pre-apply for your test online beforehand or apply at your local DOL, as you will need to apply before your score can be recorded.
