Useful Reminders for the DMV Written Test


Scott McGregor lists 7 important reminders for the DMV written test on It is a quick summary of some very useful tips for students who are preparing to take the DMV written knowledge test.

Outsmart the Multiple-choice Test

The article offers some insight to how multiple-choice tests work, which may give you an edge over DMV and the test-makers. Even if knowledge of rules of the road is by far the best recipe for passing the DMV test, there may be situations when you are forced to guess on the exam.

Test makers often construct false choices (“distractors”) by using words like always or never. Unless the question is directly related to traffic laws, this may warn you that the answer is false.

If you are force to wild guessing, you should also look for the longest answer, or the answer with more details. But be aware of unnecessary details, like numbers, penalties and similar, that may change over time. Test makers don’t want to change their questions just because the law changes.

All tests are written by humans and are constructed in a certain way to make sure you have the proper knowledge. Test-makers are, of course, also aware of the above and may try to outsmart you instead. So, be careful when you take the exam. Who outsmarts who in the question above?

The Best Strategy is to Use Practice Tests

A DMV written practice test at serves two purposes:

  • You familiarize yourself with the test format.
  • You get instant feedback on your current knowledge level.

With DMV practice tests that are little bit more challenging, you will also learn how to pace yourself and read everything twice. An important experience, when you enter the test room at your local DMV office.

Start by motivate yourself, read your state’s driver handbook, and then take as many practices tests as you need. The more tests you take, the more you will learn.

According to Scott, you should aim for a score of 95 – 100 % on the practice test. Friends and family may also be able to help with honest feedback. You shouldn’t be afraid to ask them.
