New York DMV Permit Test No. 1 - Passing score: 70%
The passing score in New York is 70%. It means you should answer at least 14 out of 20 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.
Motivation and Endurance
Motivation is one of the most important pieces that will help you succeed on the New York knowledge examination.
Endurance is another. Driver's Prep suggests that you take just a few practice tests each day, then return to them the next day. Give the brain time to digest all information from the New York manual. Focus on high-quality practice, instead of just quantity.
A Driver's License is an important step toward freedom and independence. A driver license opens opportunities. It is often easier to land a good job when you can drive. This is why you should work hard to build up your driver knowledge and do well on the permit test.
Is it the Same Questions on the Real DMV Test?
Many of our users want to know if they will get the same questions on their real New York license test. Overall, you should not expect to find the exact questions on any website. Practice tests and sample tests are created to help you learn, not to give you the correct answers in advance.
Driver's Prep has been in this business since 2007, longer than any other website offering free permit practice tests. Relatively early, we discovered that many of our users tried to just memorize answers. There was no true understanding or true learning. They simply wanted to see the real test and wanted to just remember questions and answers. Which didn't really help them on the real exam.
On the real exam, questions are randomly drawn from a large pool of questions. There are many variations on wordings and choices. Without true understanding it is easy to trick yourself into picking the wrong answers.

What You Must Know for Your New York DMV Written Test
While many of the details in the New York driver's manual can seem irrelevant or insignificant for your driving skills, they are all important for your NY DMV exam.
Examination questions on the driving tests deal with speed limits (checking the speed limit in school zones is a good idea) in New York, proper parking distance to intersections and fire hydrants, use of headlights, and the length of a license suspension after certain convictions. Sometimes, you can figure out many of these numbers by trying to think like New York lawmakers. The most straightforward strategy is to simply learn them from the handbook and take some additional practice tests.But all numbers are not equally important. Braking distances and number of fatal accidents caused by alcohol differ. It is enough to have a rough idea about the number.
