What Is a Driver's License Practice Test?

A driver's license practice test is a test that allows prospective drivers to study and prepare for the written driver's test. These tests are provided by the local department of motor vehicles (DMV) for a fee.

Drivers who think they are ready for their written test may benefit from taking a practice test. The DMV website offers a free seven-question test, but other tests may be purchased depending on the number of questions a driver wants to work on. Usually, 50 and 100 question tests are available, as is a 50-question DMV cheat sheet for those who want more practice. These tests should be used in conjunction with a DMV driver's manual.
