Nebraska Sample Practice
Our permit practice tests will help you pass the written knowledge exam. They are intended as a learning tool. Use them together with the Nebraska Driver’s Manual, not as an alternative to reading the manual.
Make sure you get the latest version of the manual from a Driver Licensing site or down load it online from dmv.nebraska.gov.
After reading the manual, take practice tests to check how much you have learned. You get instant feedback after each question. Should you make a mistake, there is also a brief explanation. If you aren’t sure about the answers, look up the information in the manual.
It helps to discuss common rules and safe driving practices with a friend, teacher, parent, or any licensed driver. The more you know, the easier it will be to pass the examination.
The passing score in Nebraska is 80 percent, which means you must answer at least 20 questions correctly. On the practice tests you should aim for a full score.
Take your time and read everything carefully. More than 590 percent of all first-time applicants fail the Nebraska written test. So, you should prepare well.

Who Must Take the Written Test?
There is a separate written test for each class of license. You can find more information about different tests in the driver’s manual.
As a first-time applicant, you must always take and pass a written knowledge test.
- Learner’s Permit – Type LPE: must pass vision and written tests.
- Learner’s Permit – Type LPD: must pass vision and written tests. DMV will waive the written test if a school learner’s permit (LPE), school permit (SCP) or learner’s permit (LPD) is valid or not expired for more than one year.
- School Permit – Type SCP: waived if the applicant has completed a DMV approved driver safety course.
- Provisional Operator’s Permit – POP: DMV waives the test if the applicant has completed a DMV approved driver safety course.
- Operator’s License (Class O): waived if the applicant held a POP.
If you have an expired out-of-state driver’s license, you must also take the test before you can get a Nebraska license.
If you are renewing a valid Nebraska operator’s license, DMV will waive the written test if you renew within one year after expiration. Make sure you take full advantage of your renewal period.
