We help you pass your Florida DMV exam

How Should You Study for the Permit Test?

The first step is to get the latest version of the Florida official Driver Handbook. It is available at your local tax collector or online. When you’ve studied the handbook, you can use the practice tests at Driver’s Prep to check your progress and if you are ready for the real knowledge test or not.

The passing score in Florida is 80 percent, which means you must correctly answer at least 40 out of 50 questions.

It is a good idea to aim higher on a practice test. We recommend you to take enough tests to make sure you can reach a score of 92 percent with ease (46 correct answers).

But don’t just take test after test just to get a higher score. You need to truly understand answers and explanations. Read up on mistakes and try to understand why you missed a question. Did you misunderstand the question or answer? Did you read too fast? Or did you simply not know the answer?

Who Must Take the Florida Knowledge Test?

Anyone who applies for an original learner’s permit or driver license must successfully pass the written knowledge test.

When you move to Florida and already hold a valid driver’s license from another state, U.S. possession, Canada, France, or Republic of Korea (South Korea), the written knowledge test is usually waived, unless your driving ability is questionable.

After a revocation of your license, you must submit to an investigation before you can obtain another license. It may be necessary to take all tests again.

What’s on the Florida Written Test?

The test verifies that you can understand traffic signals, common road signs, and pavement markings. You must also have a good knowledge of Florida vehicle laws and driving rules, as well as safe driving techniques.

How Many Questions Are on the official DMV Test?

The official test is a multi-choice test with 50 questions, covering rules of the road and common traffic signs and signals. To pass, you must correctly answer 40 of the 50 questions (a passing score of 80%).

Previously, the Florida DMV written test had two parts – a 20-question test on road signs and 20-questions test on road rules. Since 2015, the test now has 50 questions covering all items in the driver handbook.

New and more tough questions caused the pass rate if Florida to drop significantly. Even if the test has been updated several times since early 2015, the pass rate in Florida is still low. So, take many practice tests and prepare well for your exam. You probably need it.

  1. b is the solely one answer , read the handbook well.

    • The question has been removed since it no longer fully matches the content of the Florida handbook (see answer below). By Florida law, D is, however, still the best and a correct answer.

      B and C: The handbook says you may cross solid yellow lines when making a left turn. This applies to left turns both FROM and INTO an alley, private road or driveway.

      A: The prohibition of passing in a no-passing zone does not apply when an obstruction exists making it necessary to drive to the left of the center of the highway. In other words, when a bicyclist is moving so slowly as to constitute an obstruction, a driver may cross solid yellow lines in a no-passing zone to pass the bicyclist if it is safe to so.

      Florida law ยง316.0875(3): “This [section] does not apply when an obstruction exists making it necessary to drive to the left of the center of the highway, nor to the driver of a vehicle turning left into or from an alley, private road or driveway.”

  2. Practice test 1

    3. When are you allowed to cross a double yellow line?

    a. When passing a slow moving bicycle.
    b. When turning into a private driveway.
    c. When exiting from a private road.
    d. All of the above.

    You say b is wrong. See the 2018 Florida drivers manual, page 13; “Double solid yellow lines. Vehicles moving in either direction must not cross these lines (unless turning left when it is safe to do so). By definition, then, my answer was in fact right. If there is a second correct, possibly ‘c’, then you have two right answers. Turning into a private driveway would be included in turning left when safe to do so.

    • B is correct. So is A and C, making D the best answer.

      Slow moving bicyclists were mentioned in previous versions of the Florida Handbook, but this is no longer the case (2018). Therefore, this question is likely to be reviewed and possibly removed in a near future.
