How can I prepare for the permit test?

Perhaps the best way to get ready for your learners permit test involves a two-step process.

The first part includes studying your state's drivers license manual from cover to cover. Yes, you'll likely find parts of the booklet boring. But, it contains information that's essential for you to know - not only to pass the permit test, but for your driving safety. You'll learn about state driving rules, speed limits, signs, emergency procedures, parking situations and defensive driving techniques.

You can also pick up this information through a classroom or online drivers education course. But, even if you opt for this method, it's still a good idea to review the manual.

The second part involves taking a practice permit test. Actually, it's better to take several. Why? Because these tests reinforce the knowledge from the drivers handbook and your drivers ed classes, and get you in the habit of answering the information in a question-and-answer format. Additionally, by passing these tests, your confidence will grow. That means you'll be more relaxed on testing day, and that will make it easier for you to recall the information and pass the drivers permit test - on your first try!
