To apply for a learner permit or driver license you must complete an Application for Driver License (MV-44). You must pass a vision and written test and pay the application and license fees.

The written test examines knowledge of the road signs, rules of the road, safe driving techniques and the laws about alcohol and drug use while driving.

To pass the written test, you must correctly answer at least 14 of the 20 questions asked, but you must correctly answer two of the four questions about road signs.

This test is intended to help you prepare for the types of questions you will be asked on the written test. The questions on the actual test may vary.

1 . The safest speed to drive your car:

Depends on the mechanical skill of the driver. In hazardous conditions, such as when roads are slippery or when weather is foggy, it may be necessary to drive below the posted speed limit. You can be ticketed for driving at a speed that is not reasonable for conditions, even if it's below the legal limit.

2 . A broken yellow centerline means that:

A broken yellow centerline means that a driver may cross the centerline to pass another vehicle on the left as long as there is no oncoming traffic. Drivers should never cross a solid yellow centerline in order to pass.

3 . Assuming that the street is level, what should you do after you have finished parallel parking in a space between two other cars?

Straighten your front wheels and leave room between cars. The final step of parallel parking (unless you are on a hill) is to bring your wheels straight and pull forward, allowing room for surrounding vehicles to maneuver safely.

4 . The car behind you begins to pass you. You should:

Blow your horn to signal that it to pass. If another vehicle passes you on the left, decrease your speed slightly and keep to the right. When the vehicle has safely passed and is ahead of you, resume your normal speed.

5 . If a truck or bus is making a right turn where you also need to make a right turn, you should:

If you try to insert your vehicle between a turning truck or bus and a curb, you may suffer a serious crash. To avoid a collision, do not turn until the truck or bus has completed its turn.

6 . You are driving in the middle lane on a three-lane expressway. A car begins to pass you on the right. The actions of that driver are:

Fine, as long as no signs forbid passing on the right. On a two-way road with two or more lanes traveling in the same direction, it is permitted to pass on the right as long as doing so is not prohibited by signs or restricted by parked cars or other obstructions.

7 . Blood alcohol content (BAC) depends on each of the following, except:

How physically fit you are. Your blood alcohol content (BAC) depends on how much alcohol you drink, how much time passes between drinks, and your weight. It is not affected by the type of alcoholic beverages you drink, your level of physical fitness, or how well you can "hold your liquor."
