The official Texas DPS written test consists of 30 questions and you are allowed 9 incorrect answers are allowed (70% passing score). If you are over 25 or older, you must pass this knowledge test before you receive your driver's license, unless you are eligible to transfer a valid license to a Texas license (see above).
The DPS written test will measure your knowledge of traffic signs, driving laws and safe driving. All questions are based on the information contained in Texas Driver Handbook.
If you don't pass the written knowledge and behind-the-wheel tests on your first attempt, your application is put on hold for 90 days. After 90 days or three failed tests, you must submit a new application and pay the fee again.

DMV Practice Test
The 2016 update to our DMV practice test is now launched. While some old questions have been removed from the test, several new questions have been added. As always, this is the most reliable and up-to-date license and driving permit practice test you can find online. And it is free.
Studies show that reliability improve with larger numbers of questions the practice tests. No other site has as many questions as Driver’s Prep. This will help you prepare with much less effort and ace the real test.
What You Need to Know
Remember, the California knowledge test is based on information contained in the California Driver Handbook. If you don’t have a printed copy of this booklet, download the pdf-version from http://dmv.ca.gov. It is a must-have!
To pass the knowledge test, you must demonstrate a good understanding of California traffic laws and safe driving techniques. You must also be able to read and understand highway signs regulating, warning and directing traffic, even if California DMV doesn’t put as much focus on this as other states.
Most questions on the California DMV test deal with driving situations and safe traffic maneuvers.
How to Use the DMV Practice Test
The DMV practice tests at Driver’s Prep contains sample questions from real DMV tests. Tests are the Multiple Choice type. Meaning, you are asked to select the best possible answer out of three choices. By using the DMV practice test you will get a good understanding of what the questions will look like and how they are worded.
Remember to read everything carefully. This is probably the single most important thing you can do to master both the practice test and the real knowledge test.
Take several practice tests. Make a note of the questions you miss. Go back to the handbook and study those chapters again. Then, take some new practice tests. Don’t guess on the practice test! The test is good drivers education and your way of making sure that you will pass the real thing. If you don’t know or understand an answer, you need to study the handbook again.
When you reach a passing score of more than 90% without any problems, you are probably ready for the real test.

Fresh Update to Maine BMV Test Questions
We have updated our database with new BMV test question for the State of Maine. The database now consist of more than 1,000 question, all based on the latest version of the Motorist Handbook and Study Guide released by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
We have put more focus on questions about Maine's drinking and driving laws, just like the real Maine BMV knowledge test.
All BMV Test Questions You Need
Unlike many other websites, our questions are directly taken from the Study Guide. This will ensure that you study the right thing and can compare facts with the handbook. We put emphasis on helping you learn and understand the complete content of the handbook. You will need this to become a safe driver.
Read the Study Guide and Handbook
Remember that all real BMV test questions will be drawn from the Motorist Handbook and Study Guide. You can expect questions about any subject in this booklet. This is why you should start by reading the handbook and keep it by your side when you take a practice test. Refer to it any time you feel uncertain about an answer. It will help you learn facts quicker.
Common Mistakes When Studying
Some users think that just memorizing answer from these practice test will help them pass the real BMV knowledge test. It is not that easy. In fact, it could have the opposite effect. Without real knowledge, you could be tricked by the wording of questions and jump to wrong conclusions.
You should take a systematic approach to your studies and start well ahead of your planned exam. Keep a consistent study schedule and take many practice tests. The more time you use, the more you will learn.
Putting off studying until the last minute usually means failure. And remember, most people fail their knowledge test the first time.
Common Mistakes When Taking the Test
Read the BMV test questions carefully and don't add any of your own information to questions or choices. Then, think. Test questions are usually quite simple as long as you give them a minute or two.
Pay attention to words like always, never, usually, must and should. The word must, as an example, means that there is a law requirement. The word should means that it is best practice, but not necessary required by law. The simple words are sometimes the most important.
Maine BMV Permit Test and Driver's License Test 2016
Our practice tests will help you when taking either your first BMV permit test or a re-exam because your Maine driver's license has been suspended or expired. A re-exam will not contain questions about permit restrictions or other permit rules, so just ignore those if you are forced to a re-exam.
Your knowledge exam will contain 25 BMV test questions and you can only miss four (a passing score of 84 percent).
