How to Pass
Your Written Permit Test
This is it, the day you finally get to drive a car . . . if you pass that is. Take our course if you want to make sure that happens!
- Get a minimum of 39 out of 46 on your permit test
- You have 3 chances to pass
- Then complete your behind-the-wheel training
To make passing your written test even easier, we provide you with a free 50 question practice test with the course. Take the test a few times until you feel comfortable enough to take the real thing. The questions on our practice test will automatically jumble for you, so it’s like taking a new test every time.

Your Driver's License
Once you have your Learner's Permit, all you have to do is:
