Questions on the permit test pertain to the rules of driving on roads, the latest driving laws of the state and driving in emergency situations. Questions are also asked regarding registration of a vehicle and safe driving practices.
Questions concerning the rules of driving on roads encompass the right-of-way rules, speed limits, seat belt and traffic signal rules and road markings. Questions are also asked regarding how to drive in bad weather and heavy traffic conditions, how to drive safely when around pedestrians and how to drive near the railway tracks. The objective behind some questions asked is to test the individual's knowledge regarding making smooth turns and correct usage of the designated traffic lanes.
Additionally, the permit test includes questions about safe parking and driving tips. Questions related to health and safety may also be asked in the test. Often the test tests the individual's knowledge regarding financial responsibility, drinking and driving, drugs and accidents.
Questions in the permit test are generated using a computer, which makes it difficult to predict what type of questions will appear in it. However, those applying for the learner's permit can obtain a study guide booklet that contains free practice tests from the local Department of Motor Vehicles or download the same from its website.
