Tennessee Permit Test No. 2 - Passing score: 80%
To pass your Tennessee DMV test, study the driver's manual & take permit practice tests you can trust. You'll find them here.
The passing score in Tennessee is 80%. It means you should answer at least 24 out of 30 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 DMV Driver License Manual and read up on the facts.
Can I Use Just Practice Tests and Still Pass?
Many students ask if it is enough just to take the DMV practice tests. Can you pass the real test if you don't read the manual?
You should remember that no two people study the exact same way. What works for some, may not work for others. Researchers, however, have shown that there are some methods that get better results than others.
Don't Skip the Tennessee Driver Manual
Even if you are confident that everything about driving is common sense, a solid understanding of Tennessee rules of the road makes you a better driver. Sure, you may be smart enough to pass a test without reading the manual. But why would you want to? Becoming the best driver you can be is also about safety - for you and everyone else on the road. Drivers with more knowledge and more experience make our highways safer.
