Kentucky Practice Tests
The Kentucky practice tests have 40 random questions based on the handbook and real exam questions. After each question, you get instant feedback. If your answer isn’t correct, there is also a brief comment to help you learn.
Before you start practicing, you should get the latest version of the Kentucky Driver’s Manual. Contact the Circuit Court Clerk’s office in your county of residence.
When you’ve studied the manual, use these practice tests to check your progress and if you are ready for the real knowledge test or not.
The passing score in Kentucky is 80 percent, which means you should be able to answer at least 32 questions correctly.
It is a good idea to aim a little higher on a practice test. Take enough tests to make sure you can reach a score of 92 percent or more.
