Hawaii Driver’s Practice for the Written Test
Driver’s Prep has designed these permit practice tests for use as a guide to help you become a safe driver and qualify for the Hawaii instruction permit or full driver’s license.
Each permit practice test has 30 random questions based on the Hawaii Driver’s Manual, the Complete Test Questions and Answers from Dept. Of Transportation, and real knowledge exams.
The tests are easy to use. After each question, you will see the correct answer. If your answer isn’t correct, you’ll also get a brief explanation.
By reading the official Hawaii Driver’s Manual and using these practice tests to check your progress, you increase your chances of passing the real written test the first time.
You can download a PDF-version online or buy a hard-copy from your local licensing office.
Acing the Hawaii Knowledge Test
The Hawaii passing score is 80 percent. To pass, you must answer at least 24 questions correctly.
Since this is only a practice test, don’t stop at this level. You should answer at least 28-29 questions correctly on two or three practice tests before you are ready. A common mistake by first time applicants is to attempt the real knowledge test too soon.
Spreading your study sessions and practice tests over a longer period helps long-term memory. Instead of cramming for the DMV test just a few days before the real thing, start at least 4 weeks before your real exam. Study the manual and take a practice test or two each day.

Who Must Take Hawaii Written Test?
If you apply for an original Driver’s License, you must pass the written test consisting of recognition of traffic control devices and knowledge about rules of the road.
When you renew a Hawaii driver’s license, you must do so within a year after the expiration date. Otherwise, you must follow the procedure for an original license and take all tests again.
When you have an out-of-state or out-of-country license and want a Hawaii license, you must successfully pass the written test.
Note that an expired out-of-state license is not transferable and requires the successful completion of both the written knowledge test and the road test.
How Many Questions are on the Hawaii Written Test?
The questions on the Hawaii driver’s exam are based on the topics discussed in the Driver’s Manual, and consist of two parts. One part has questions about Hawaii Rules of the Road, the other part will test your recognition of road signs and traffic control devices.
There is a total of 30 questions on the test. You must correctly answer 24 of the 30 questions (80%).
