What are the PA driving permit test requirements? Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania Learners Permit Testing RequirementsThe Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) sets requirements for the state's residents to receive a drivers permit. You must complete Form DL-180 to apply for your Pennsylvania (PA) driving permit.
Visit the nearest PennDOT service center and provide proof of citizenship and residency. If you are younger than 18 years of age, bring your parents or legal guardians with you to the PennDOT service center. You must be at least 16 years old to get a PA learners permit.
Take the vision screening. Tell the PennDOT staff professional if you need to wear corrective lenses (i.e. prescription eyeglasses, contact lens) to pass the vision test. Should you need corrective lenses to pass the test, you are required to wear corrective lenses at all times while you operate a motor vehicle in PA, even after you get your drivers license.
You must answer at least 15 questions on the permit test correctly to get your permit. There are a total of 18 questions on the written exam. Questions on the written examination are similar to the practice permit test included at the back of the PA driver’s manual. Actual test questions cover areas like:
- Stopping for school buses.
- Parking on hills and flat surfaces.
- Understanding traffic signals and signs.
- Auto insurance requirements.
