Why Driver's License Test Online Helps

A recent survey revealed that first-time applicants using online DMV practice tests to prepare for their DMV written test had a pass rate of 93.2%.

Less than one out 10 failed their first attempt at the DMV written knowledge test. This should be compared with numbers released by different state departments, where first-time applicants show an average pass rate of 50% or less.

Old-school Study Habits Not So Effective

Old methods don't always work for new challenges. Many students still use highlighting text and rereading the driver's manual several times. Researchers behind a study called "Improving Students' Learning with Effective Learning Technique" (2013), showed that these two techniques are ineffective.

DMV Practice Tests More Efficient

The most efficient study techniques, researchers say, is distributed practice and practice testing. That is why you should use our Connecticut online practice when preparing for your DMV exam
