Illinois Permit Test No. 2 - Passing score: 80%
The passing score in Illinois is 80%. It means you should answer at least 28 out of 35 questions correctly to pass this practice test. The safest tactic, however, is to aim for a full score. Take as many tests as you need to feel comfortable with all answers. Learn by your mistakes. If needed, use the Driver Manual and read up on the facts.
Get Motivated to become a Better Driver
What really identifies top performers on the permit test is their understanding of setting clear goals for their studies and staying motivated.
If you find it hard to get motivated to study for your permit test, try to develop a study routine and stick to it. Be clear about why you want to learn the contents of the driver handbook. Don't just study to pass the DMV exam. You should want to be able to drive legally, but also to be a safe, knowledgeable, and skilful driver. When you find it difficult to study because parts of the handbok are boring, remember that are no boring subjects, only disinterested minds.
