The Purpose of Online Permit Practice Tests
The permit practice test is designed for anyone 18 years or older who wants to apply for a New York class D – Operator License or anyone under 18 who wants a DJ – Junior Operator License.
The practice test has 20 questions, just like the real DMV written knowledge test. You must answer 14 questions correctly to pass. 4 of the 20 questions are about road signs, and you must answer two of them correctly.
You should prepare for any permit practice test and the real DMV test by reading the New York State Driver’s Manual. Get a copy from your nearest DMV office or download a copy online. Make sure you read it. Everything you need to know to pass the real exam is in this manual.
Use the permit practice tests to check your progress. Each practice test is intended to help you prepare for what you will be asked on the real written test. The questions on the actual test may be worded slightly different, but contents and meanings are the same.
Learn from your mistakes
Every time you miss a question, you should try to learn from it. Ask yourself why you missed it. Look up the information in the driver’s manual.
If you don’t understand the correct answer or the information in the driver’s manual, discuss with friends and family. It is a good idea to have an experienced driver to help you with your studies. This way you will learn faster.
Ready for the Real Test?
You are probably ready for the real test when you reach a passing score of 90% or more on the permit practice test and feel confident about all answers.
Should you fail the real examination, there is no additional fee to retake the test, and there is no limit to how many times you can take it. Just be sure to practice some more, before you try again. Knowledge will make you a better a safer driver. You should also know why 1 out of 4 fail their first test.
