Colorado Practice Tests for Instruction Permits and Licenses
These practice tests for a driver’s license or learner’s permit have 25 random questions based on the Colorado Driver Handbook and current DMV tests. Each test is a multiple-choice test and after each question, you get feedback with a short explanation. Whenever you aren’t sure about an answer, look it up in the manual!
The latest version of the Colorado Driver Handbook is your best friend when studying for a full driver license or your first instruction permit. Make sure you get a copy from your nearest driver licensing office or download the manual online .
After studying the handbook, take as many practice tests as you can. They’ll tell you if you are ready or not for the real knowledge exam.
The passing score in Colorado is 80 percent. On a practice test with 25 questions, you cannot miss more than 5 questions. But even if you reach 20 correct answers, it isn’t enough to guarantee a passing score on the real test. Make sure you can reach a score of 92 percent or more on the practice test and that you truly understand the answers.
Who Must Take the Colorado Written Test?
You need to take the basic written test when you apply for a driver license or instruction permit and haven’t been licensed before.
Once you got a Colorado driver’s license or instruction permit, you don’t have to repeat the examination unless:
- You apply for a different class of license or add an endorsement.
- You want to reinstate your license or permit after it was canceled, revoked, or denied. (Read more )
- You let the license or permit expire for more than one year.
Traffic tickets which result in suspension, may also require a new test if DMV questions your ability to drive safely.
If you are 16 years of age or older and have a valid license issued by another U.S. state, territory, or possession, you normally don’t have to take the written test or the road test.
Colorado has agreements with Canada, France, Germany, and the Republic of South Korea. If you apply for a Colorado license and have a driver license from any of these countries, the DMV will normally waive the testing requirements.
Drivers from any other country must successfully pass both the Colorado written knowledge exam and the road test.
During the pandemic, appointments are required for all written written tests.
Road tests are currently not conducted by DMV. Check with an authorized driving school if they will allow you to take the road test.
