The passing score in Idaho is higher than in many other states. Aim for a score of 92 percent or more on this practice. You should also make sure that you truly understand why an answer is correct and why other options are incorrect.

Who Must Take the Idaho Knowledge Test?
All new drivers applying for an original driver’s license must pass a knowledge exam.
If you are under 17 years, you must successfully complete a driver training program and comply with the requirements of the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) Program. After the supervised instruction period, you must take and pass the written knowledge test before receiving your driver’s license.
If you are 17 years or older, the GDL requirements don’t apply. You start the application process by taking the written knowledge test and a vision screening at a county sheriff’s office.
When transferring from another state, U.S. Territory, or the District of Columbia, you must pass a Class D written knowledge test, even if you have been licensed in Idaho before. Unlike many other states, the written DMV test is not waived for drivers who hold an out-of-state driver’s license.
You must also pass all tests if you hold a foreign driver’s license.
