Practice Tests for Your Idaho Written Knowledge Exam
The practice tests for a learner’s permit or standard driver license check your knowledge of Idaho traffic laws, highway signs by shape and symbol, traffic signals, pavement markings, and equipment required on motor vehicles.
Each practice test has 40 questions. It gives you instant feedback, so you’ll know if your answer is correct or not. If you miss a question, there is a brief explanation. Use the explanation to look up more information in the Idaho Driver’s Manual.
Our practice tests help you prepare as much as possible and predict how likely you are to pass the real knowledge examination.
Get the Driver’s Manual
Your first step is to get the latest version of the Driver’s Manual from itd.idaho.gov. After studying the manual, use the practice tests to verify your progress.
You can find all questions and answers you need to pass the written test for a class D license or instruction permit in the Driver’s Manual and in these practice tests.
Aim for a High Score on The Tests
The passing score in Idaho is higher than in many other states. You must correctly answer 34 out of the 40 questions, which means you can only miss 6 of them.
That’s why you should aim for the highest possible score on the practice tests. Take as many tests as you need, as often as you like.
On each test, you should make sure you truly understand why an answer is correct and why other options are incorrect.

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.
If you let your Idaho Driver’s license expire for 25 months or more, you must also take knowledge exam.
