The database currently consists of more than 1,300 questions with everything from parking rules to the meaning of road signs. Everything is designed to help you prepare for and pass the challenges of Delaware DMV written test.

DMV Written Test Questions Are Based on the Manual

To pass your test and become a safe driver, we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations contained in the Delaware Driver’s Manual. It provides a summary of state laws, rules, and safe driving techniques to follow. You can download a pdf version of the Delaware Driver’s Manual from

All questions on the DMV Written Test are based on the information in the Delaware Driver’s Manual. The Class D written test consists of 30 questions. The passing grade is 80%, which means six or fewer errors. One of the main keys to success is to read each question completely and carefully. Don’t add read anything into the questions that isn’t there.

How to Study

The main purpose of the online practice tests at Driver’s Prep is to help you verify your knowledge, but they can also be used as a study guide. Using the information in the Driver’s Manual together with our practice questions is one of the most effective ways to reach your goal. Discussing questions, rules and driving techniques with peers, parents, or a driving instructor will strengthen your knowledge even more.

Young students often cram before a test, no doubt a habit picked up from school. All research, however, shows that distributed practice results in more solid knowledge. This means that you should study over many sessions. Break up the driver’s manual in smaller parts. Take practice tests over a longer period of time.

How Many Practice Tests Should You Take?

There is great variation in how long it take for users to get ready for the DMV written test. The value of test practice is, however, well documented. You will understand test content, see typical test questions, and get familiar with the test format. Test practice also helps you see things from different perspectives, organize information, and activate related knowledge.

This does not mean that all users will see large score gains after just a few practice tests. You should continue study the manual and verify your knowledge with our practice tests until you clearly understand why a test answer is correct. Read the comments and don’t focus too much on your practice score.

What about Cheat Sheets?

Don’t buy the hype. Too often, users assume because something costs money, it must be worth it. Nobody can guarantee that you will pass the DMV written test based on a cheat sheet with a limited number of questions.

There really is no short-cut to prepare for a DMV written test“, driver instructor Thomas Davies says. “The best way to get ready is to realize that you need to study. Becoming a good driver doesn’t happen overnight“.

How to Master the DMV Knowledge Test

You have been studying for weeks. Maybe months. The day is here. You are waiting at the DMV office for your turn. You are a bit nervous. You know that others have failed the first time. Is the DMV knowledge test hard? Can you do this?

You are not sure…

Relax. We will show you how to master the DMV knowledge test and you will pass with ease.

Attitude and Confidence

Keep a good attitude. It is normal to have jitters and being stressed before any kind of important test. Don’t add to the subconscious idea of this exam as a threat or that it is hard. Remind yourself that you did well on our free practice tests. Our practice test questions are actually harder than the real thing! Tell yourself that you will do your best and that your best is good enough. If you find yourself panicking and feeling sick, take a few deep breaths, but keep the good thoughts!

Your Turn!

One of the biggest mistakes is to not manage your time. In most states there is no time limit. Use this to your advantage.

Make sure you understand the instructions. If anything is just the slightest unclear, don’t be afraid to ask before you start your test. Read everything on the screen twice. Yes, it might sound like overkill. But better safe than sorry.

First Question

When you get the first question, you feel that you have seen it before. After all, you been taking the permit practice tests on this site for weeks, right? No wonder, you recognize it.

Don’t go with your first impulse to immediately answer the question. Read the entire question and alternatives again. Questions can be put in many different ways, just because it looks familiar, it might not ask what you think it is asking. Choose an answer only on the basis of the information provided within the question. Don’t read anything into the question that isn’t there!

Read all choices or alternatives. Perhaps you can eliminate some of them before choosing the best answer? After all, tests are constructed in a way that only one answer can be correct. The others are irrelevant or totally wrong.

Be Careful with Qualifiers

Qualifiers are words that qualify or intensify a question being asked. They are often very helpful when picking the correct answer. Words that strengthen the statement in a question, such as “never” or “always”, should raise a red flag! Why? Well, because statements with words like this are rarely true.

Look at this question: True or false? It is always safe and legal to drive at the posted speed limit. The first instinct may tell you that it is true. Words like safe and legal tend to stick in your mind more than the word always. And, why else would they have speed limits? Right?

Or like Bethany wrote to us a while back:

You have the right to go that speed on that particular road if you are whiling to risk your life. It means it is up to me to go at that speed under all condition if I can get through and or keep control of my car.

Which, of course, isn’t true. All states have a basic speed rule. This law overrides a posted speed limit. The basic speed law basically says that you must never drive faster than is safe for present conditions, regardless of the posted speed limit. In other words, the qualifier here ignores the fact that there are situations when the posted speed limit does not apply (icy roads for example). Look at the question again. The word “always” requires posted speed limit to be safe at all time. Which it isn’t. Pretty obvious, if you take your time and think critically.

Don’t Know the Answer?

Even if you are well prepared, it is not unlikely that you will get one or two questions that are difficult and that you don’t really know the answer to. Read the question again and make sure you don’t misunderstand or have missed something. Then stick with you first thought. It is usually the correct one.

Don’t Read Too Much into Questions

There is a difference between reading things carefully and reading too much into the questions on your DMV knowledge test. Once you have picked your answer, do not continue to change it based on “what if”.

Using your own experience or imagination can help you sometimes, but it can also trick you into seeing something in the question that isn’t there. Don’t add your own information.

Stay Relaxed

Stay relaxed and focused throughout the written knowledge test. Missing a question isn’t the end of everything, not even if it is the first exam question! Plenty of easy questions will follow. You will recognize several of them. Keep the good attitude and remind yourself that you are well prepared. You can do this.

Auto Theft Information

What if Your Car is Stolen?

Think about this: what would happen if your car suddenly disappeared? Victims of auto theft often find it difficult, if not impossible, to go on with everyday life. That is why auto theft protection is so important.

The Most Stolen Cars in United States

The most stolen cars are NOT expensive sports cars or multi-purpose passenger vehicles. In fact, the most reported stolen cars are ordinary passenger cars.

According to NHTSA, the (2012) most reported stolen models are:

  1. Mercedes Benz CL-Class
  2. Mitsubishi Eclipse
  3. Mazda 6
  4. Chrysler Dodge Charger
  5. Nissan Infiniti FX35/FX50
  6. Chrysler Dodge Avenger
  7. Chrysler 300
  8. GM Chevy Impala
  9. Mitsubishi Galant
  10. GM Chevy Captiva

Did you know that every 45 seconds a car is stolen in the United States? Only half of them (54%) are recovered. Thieves can strip a vehicle in less than 30 minutes. They can make 2-4 times a vehicle’s worth by selling its individual parts.

Didn’t you find your model in the list? See The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2012 Theft Data for a complete list.

States with the Most Stolen Vehicles

The following are the 10 U.S. States with the most stolen vehicles:

  1. California
  2. Florida
  3. Texas
  4. New York
  5. Georgia
  6. Illinois
  7. New Jersey
  8. North Carolina
  9. Ohio
  10. Nevada

The auto theft rate in these states has a significant effect on auto insurance premiums in those states.

How to Protect Yourself from Auto Theft

There are some simple steps you can follow to beat the thieves at their own game and protect yourself from auto theft.

First, get anti-theft systems and devices that make your car more difficult to steal and easier to recover. Most vehicles today come with audible warning devices. They may deter random auto theft by loud sounds. VIN-etching your vehicles windows/glass and even parts, is a simple and inexpensive protection. Electronic devices that prevent thieves from bypassing your vehicle’s ignition system are also effective. There are other electronic devices that disable the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine. You can also get simple GPS devices that can help law enforcement reveal the location of your stolen car.

Secondly, always park your car in a safe place. If you have a garage, use it. Hide your valuables. Always close all windows and lock the car. Never leave your car with the key in the ignition.

Crash Scene - NHTSA

Traffic Deaths in 2014 Hit New Record Low

The number of traffic deaths in Pennsylvania totaled 1,195 last year (2014). This is lowest number since 1928, when record keeping began. While fatalities dropped in many types of crashes, there were significant drops in crashes involving unbuckled drivers/passengers and drinking-driver-related crashes. Fatalities where safety belts were not used dropped from 425 to 383. Deaths in drinking-driver related crashes declined to from 342 to 294.

Traffic deaths involving drowsy or sleeping drivers, on the other hand, increased slightly. This is also true about fatalities involving drivers ages 65 and older. At PennDOT offers information for this age group, including Mature Driver Improvement courses that are available statewide, a brochure on talking with mature drivers, and other safety tips.

Zero Deaths Vision and Safety Investments

This continues a favorable trend towards the nationwide goal of zero fatalities.

“PennDOT continuously strives to drive down crash and fatality numbers, and we ultimately want to reach zero deaths on our roads,” acting PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said when releasing the new numbers.

Every year, PennDOT invests about $20 million in safety education and enforcement efforts statewide. Over the last five years, PennDOT has also invested $50 million in low-cost safety countermeasures like centerline and edge-line rumble strips.

Pennsylvania Crash Statistics

PennDOT has released a Crash Information Tool, which is accessible at With this tool you can search data from police reports including number of crashes, people involved, or vehicles involved. The tool will not show personal data or specific police crash reports.
