How should you study? Well, your first step is to get the latest version of the Maryland Driver’s Manual. When you’ve studied the handbook, you can use these practice tests to check your progress and level of readiness.
The passing score in Maryland is 85 percent, which means you should be able to answer at least 21 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 with ease.
Maryland Knowledge Examination
Who Must Take the Maryland Written Test?
– All new drivers applying for an initial Maryland learner’s permit or driver’s license must take and pass the written knowledge exam.
– This may also apply to anyone applying for a new license after a revocation.
– If you let your current license expire for more than one year, you may also be required to take all tests again.
– Applicants with an out-of-county license must also pass the knowledge test.
If you hold an out-of-state license and apply for a Maryland driver’s license, tests are usually waived.
