The passing score in Virginia is 86 percent. It means you should answer at least 30 out of 35 questions correctly to pass both this practice test and the real DOL test.
The safest tactic, however, is to aim for a full score on each DOL practice test.
Take as many tests as you need to feel comfortable with all answers. Learn by your mistakes. If needed, use the DOL Driver's Manual and read up on the facts.
The more practice tests you take, the more you cover of the Virginia Driver's Manual and the easier the real test will be.
When you apply for your first Virginia Driver License or Learner's Permit, you must pass a knowledge exam. This knowledge test is only waived if you already hold a valid license from another U.S. state or territory, Canada, Germany, France, or the Republic of Korea.
As a first step on the test, you must identify 10 road signs from the Virginia Driver's Manual.. If you fail to recognize any of the signs, you cannot continue the test.
The second part (after you have passed the signs recognition part) has 25 questions about Virginia traffic laws, safe driving, and other rules of the road. You must correctly answer at least 20 questions (80 percent).
If you are under 18 years and fail the exam, you must wait at least 15 full days before you can take the exam again. If you are 18 years or older, DMV will allow you take the test sooner. You must, however, pay an additional fee if you retake the exam within 15 days. Should you fail the test 3 times, you must complete the classroom part of a driver education before you can take the test a 4th time.Beside English and American Sign Language (ASL), the knowledge exam is available in 24 different languages (no translators in any of these languages).
Remember, DMV pulls questions for your knowlege exam from a large question bank. You will not get the same questions as another applicant. Every question has its answer in the Driver's Manual. So, be sure to read the manual. Everything you need to learn is found in this booklet.
This video shows you some of the most important road signs to learn for the Virginia DMV test. Use the video as a study guide for your driver's exam, but don't try to take the real permit test without reading the Driver's Manual.
Even if all test questions and answers are carefully reviewed and verified against the Virginia Driver's Manual and State laws, there is always a risk of errors in a test when rules change. Let us know if you find something we have missed in our practice tests and we will correct it!

A basic rule in education is that the you cannot really learn anything if you just remember isolated facts and try recall them for a test. You need to connect the dots and understand how facts can be used in real life, or in this case, how they will help you on the road.
