Connecticut DMV test - Young student reading

Connecticut DMV Permit Practice Test Updated

Get all the DMV questions and answers you need to pass the Connecticut DMV knowledge test from our new and updated permit practice tests. You will find more than 1,000 practice questions to help you review and verify the knowledge you obtained from the Connecticut Driver’s Manual. It is that easy to make sure you are ready for the real thing!

Get the Latest Connecticut Driver’s Manual

You should start by downloading a free copy of the Manual or get a copy from your local DMV office. The free pdf version is found online at Having a pdf version is highly recommended, since it makes it easy to search for certain keywords.

The Connecticut Driver’s Manual is available in English and Spanish. There are also audio versions in these languages. Listening to the audio version can be great when you are on the go. It also makes learning easier.

Even if some find it hard to read everything in the Manual, it is still your best source of information. It contains everything you need to know to pass the knowledge test. Break it up in small pieces and study just a chapter, or perhaps just a page or two, at the time.

Don’t Try to Cram

Plan your studies well ahead of your test and don’t try to cram everything in a week or two. Learning the rules of the road and safe driving takes time and patience.

How to Use the Permit Practice Tests

The permit practice tests can be used as a condensed study guide. Every answer has a comment which is there to remind you of important key points from the Manual. Answers and comments will contain everything you need to pass the DMV knowledge test the first time around.

This, however, does NOT mean that the practice tests should be used as cheat sheets. Questions on your real tests may be identical to the practice test questions, and then again, they may not! We can only promise that the will be similar.

Also, our Connecticut practice tests are based on well over 1,000 questions, which means that it is unlikely that you will see all questions when you take your practice tests – and this is not necessary.

After all, it is your TRUE knowledge that actually counts when you are behind the wheel.

Ready for Your Connecticut DMV test?

By the time you have read the Connecticut Driver’s Manual a couple of times and taken enough practice tests to reach 90% with ease, you are ready for the real 25-question knowledge test. Remember to take your time. There are no trick questions at the CT DMV written test. It is, however, easy to trick yourself by adding your own information. Careful and attentive reading is a must here. Pay attention to what is actually asked. Review all alternatives and try eliminate the ones that are clearly wrong. This usually leaves you with just one correct answer.

Good Luck!

Getting a Speeding Ticket is Easy

It’s that sudden moment when you’re driving down a freeway, you catch the flash of red and blue lights in your rear-view mirror coming fast. Your reflex directs your attention to your speedometer, and you realize just how fast you are going. In the next few critical moments, you may be faced with a speeding ticket and a hefty fine.

Going with the Flow of Traffic

When I used to go on the once in a while trip to Las Vegas from California, I would see this situation playing out on the road with other drivers. The flat landscape of the desert would create the optical illusion that you weren’t going very fast, and unconsciously, everyone on the road would speed up. The only way to truly know how fast you were going was to look at the speedometer or judge by the speed of traffic around you.

Along that stretch to Vegas, you see the occasional cop with someone pulled over getting a ticket. Weekends to and from Las Vegas must be for cops like shooting fish in a barrel. There’s nothing worse than having to pay off a speeding ticket with the money you were going to have fun with for the weekend. Except for maybe losing all your money in Vegas and then getting a speeding ticket.

Avoid Speed Traps and a Speeding Ticket

With that in mind, we will walk through the situation from start to finish so you can get a better understanding of how to avoid speed traps and speeding tickets.

Watch for Planes

From the air, police sometimes use planes to spot speeders. All it takes is an eye in the sky that spots your swift lane changes around other vehicles, and once it’s radioed in, they have your vehicle description, and they will be waiting to seize the opportunity ahead of you.
If you see a helicopter or a plane following the flow of traffic, chances are they are looking for speeders. The best thing to do is slowly lower your speed and don’t weave in and out of traffic.

Watch for Sudden Drops in Speed Limits.

Another thing to be aware of is the sudden drop in the speed limit. This comes usually before you enter a city’s limits. It’s where many police lay in wait for the unsuspecting speeder, so instead of getting a ticket for doing 70 mph in a 65-mph zone, you get caught doing 70 mph in a 55-mph zone, and this increases the fine.

Be Aware of Overpasses

When you go under an overpass, many times cops will be sitting on the on-ramp on the other side with a radar gun. You won’t have time to adjust your driving once you see them, so assume that they are there before you go under an overpass.

When Already Caught in the Speed Trap

Next, we’ll go over what to do if you see a cop zooming up behind you. Never try and outrun them, because although you may have a fast car, their radios are faster.


If you are driving stick, (standard shifting) you can have an advantage by down-shifting. By shifting to a lower gear and letting off the clutch slowly, you can slow the car without your tail lights telling the cop coming up behind you that you’ve seen him and are slowing down. If you are driving an automatic, just let up on the accelerator without hitting the brakes.

Change your illumination.

If it is night and you blast through a speed trap and you know a cop is chasing, slow down, change lanes and then change your illumination. Switch your headlights to high beams, or if you are already using your high beams, switch to regular lighting. Your car will appear slightly different and if they didn’t get a good look, the cop is less likely to pull you over.

Answering Questions

When the police ask “Do you know why I pulled you over?” it’s not because they don’t know. They want to know if you know, and if you give them the correct answer, you just validated their reasoning for pulling you over.

You are always better off pleading ignorance to this question, and don’t ever give them a smart answer like, “because you thought I had donuts!”. Say you don’t know, even if you do.

Fighting a Speeding Ticket

When you sign a citation, you haven’t admitted guilt in the matter, but fighting the ticket is easier than it sounds. Police sometimes look for out-of-state license plate cars to pull over because they figure you will never show up to fight the ticket.

If you get a speeding ticket and you show up to fight it, chances are it may be thrown out just because you showed up. If your driving record is squeaky clean, you have even more of a chance of beating a speeding ticket.

Filing for an Extension

You can even beat a speeding ticket in some cases where you were completely in the wrong, just by filing for an extension on when you must make your court appearance. The more time you can put between when you got your ticket and when you must appear in court, the better.

Your Best Bet

Your best bet is to stay aware of your surroundings as you drive. The more aware of your surroundings, the better off you’ll be. Watch what other drivers are doing far ahead of you, and you may get clues as to what to expect. Follow these tips, and you’ll save some of that hard earned money for gas and fun road trips.

Break up the practice tests in many session – this results in more solid knowledge. Take practice tests until you reach at least 90% without guessing. Don’t just memorize – it is really important that you understand questions and answers, since the wording may be different on the real MVD knowledge test. Unless you understand all the information, you are not likely to pass the knowledge and skills tests.

How Many Questions are on the Montana Knowledge Test?

The Montana MVD written test has 33 questions. You must correctly answer 27 of these questions, which means a passing score of approximately 82%. This is slightly higher than most States.

If you fail the test, you can retake it the next day. We, however, suggest that you wait at least three days and use the time to take several practice tests and review the driver manual again. You do this because you want to be a safe driver, not just pass the test!

Should you fail three times (or not pass within 12 months), you must submit a new application and pay the required fees again.

How Many Questions are on the Montana MVD Practice Tests?

All our Montana MVD practice tests have 25 questions. You should correctly answer at least 21 questions (84%).

A Few Areas to Focus on for Your Montana Written Test

Montana MVD has issued the following quick reminder with statements that you should know and understand to pass the knowledge test and get your learner’s permit. It is likely that several of them will appear on your test.

1. A yellow unbroken line on the right-hand side of the centerline means a no-passing zone.

2. When parking on a hill with a curb, your front wheels should be turned as follows:
– Downhill: toward the curb
– Uphill: away from the curb

3. When your car starts to skid:
– Look where you want to go
– Ease off the gas pedal
– Don’t apply the brakes
– Steer where you want to go

4. When two vehicles approach an intersection without traffic signals at the same time, the driver on the left must yield the right of way to the driver on the right.

5. When preparing for a right turn, signal for at least 100 feet, check traffic to the rear and drive in the right-hand lane. Signal 300 feet in rural areas.

6. It is unlawful to park:
– On a sidewalk or bridge
– Closer than 20 feet to a crosswalk at an intersection
– Closer than 30 feet to a stop sign, traffic light or flashing beacon
– Closer than 15 feet to a fire hydrant
– Closer than 20 feet to a fire station
– In front of the entrance to an alley or private driveway
– In any area reserved for disabled parking unless you are disabled.

7. In school zones slow to 20 mph or other posted speed limit. Watch for children at all times

8. Headlights must be turned on:
– From one half hour after sunset to one half hour before sunrise
– Anytime weather conditions make it hard to see
– When part of a funeral line
It is safest to drive with headlights on day and night so other drivers can see your vehicle.

9. When you hear the siren of an emergency vehicle you should pull over to the right and stop.

10. Passing on the right is permitted only:
– When the roadway is wide enough for two cars to move legally in the same direction; and
– When the car ahead is making a left turn, providing you remain on the paved part of the highway.
