The Correct Way to Use Practice Tests
Bad or ineffective practice can hurt your potential success on the DMV examination and force you to retake the test. More importantly, it can leave you with serious knowledge gaps and make you a dangerous driver, even if you pass the test.
With time, you will make up for some of the gaps with experience, but most likely you are not there yet. Thorough knowledge and the right attitude should be your main strategy when using the permit practice tests.
