Virginia Permit Test No. 2 - Passing score: 86%
To pass your Virginia DOL test, study the driver's manual & take permit practice tests you can trust. You'll find them here.
The passing score in Virginia is 86%. It means you should answer at least 30 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 DOL Driver's Manual and read up on the facts.
