Driving Tests You've dreamed about getting behind the wheel, but now it's time to start practicing!

Every person with a driver's license, from a regular commuter to a racecar driver, started exactly where you are right now: worried about passing their permit test. In the past, the only thing you could do was pick up the study manual from the DMV and go over each page until you felt like you had the information memorized. But now, with the entire internet at your fingertips, there's a better way to prepare. Driving-Tests.org gives you the chance to practice in the best way possible: with realistic practice tests, filled with accurate questions, based on the permit manual from your state's DMV!
Driving-Tests.org offers different practice tests for each state, to meet your needs now.

By taking generic tests designed to help anyone anywhere in the U.S., you could unfortunately be setting yourself up for a fall. That's why our expert writers created several unique tests for each state, based on the specialized knowledge in each state's DMV manual. We're committed to making driving safer for new drivers, and that starts with helping you acquire the knowledge you need to pass your permit test and learn the rules of the road.
