Texas Permit Test No. 2 - Passing score: 70%
The passing score in Texas is 70 percent. It means you should answer at least 21 out of 30 questions correctly to pass both this practice test and the real DMV test.
The safest tactic, however, is to aim for a full score on each DMV practice test.
Take as many tests as you need to feel comfortable with all answers. Learn by your mistakes. If needed, use the DMV Driver Handbook and read up on the facts.
The more practice tests you take, the more you cover of the Texas Driver Handbook and the easier the real test will be.
Can You Rely on the Practice Tests?
Some think it is enough to just practice with sample tests and try to learn all answers. It is usually a bad strategy since not all practice tests you'll find online are specific for Texas, which means you may end up memorizing the wrong thing.
Get the Texas Driver Handbook
It is a good idea to start by scanning the Driver Handbook and understand what you need to learn. TX DPS draw all questions on your final written test from this handbook. Take a few practice tests to understand how the test will work. Then start studying the handbook.
Practice tests work best as a supplement to the DPS handbook, not as a substitution. Use them to check your progress.
