Quiz: Could You Pass a Drivers Permit Test Today?

If you suddenly found yourself back in drivers ed on test day, would you make the grade or miss the mark? Find out with our quiz!

Even before I moved to California, I’d heard horror stories about the dreaded Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Born and raised in Detroit, I’d been to the Secretary of State in Michigan to get my drivers license, and while it’s not the ideal way to spend an afternoon, it’s not that terrible.

When I found out that not only did I have to go to the DMV to get my California drivers license, I’d also be required to take a written driving exam (similar to the permit test I took when I was 15), I wasn’t exactly excited. Actually, I was downright nervous.

Truth is, I’ve spent the last 10 years behind the wheel, and most of the time it’s felt like second nature. But if I had to recite the actual rules of the road? That’s another story.

Put yourself to the test

Although most states don’t require new residents to take a written test, imagine if you suddenly found yourself in some Freaky Friday-like situation, sitting in drivers ed on test day. How would you fare? Would you be anxiously poring over pamphlets and sample questions? Or are you confident in your familiarity with the rules of the road?

Well, let’s find out! Test your knowledge with these 10 questions pulled from real driving exams across the country.

    It's nothing difficult in exam. The best way pass it from the 1st try are practise (a lot of practise) and good teacher. It's good to have a nice instructor like your parents but its much better if you inquire to other car expert who can tell you about driving in details and give some tips. When I started to learn how to drive i asked my father but it was a great mistake. He's terrible as a partner. After that my mum bought lessons at http://education4drivers.com/. After more than 50 hrs practise i passed my exam from the 1st try. So, the best thing you should do – hire a good instructor=)
