New Jersey Practice Tests at Driver’s Prep
The permit practice tests for New Jersey have 25 random questions based on the handbook and real NJ MVC tests. After each question, you have access to instant feedback with detailed explanations.
How should you study?
The best way to start is to get the latest version of the New Jersey Driver’s Manual. After reading it, you can use the practice tests at Driver’s Prep to check your progress and level of readiness.
The passing score in New Jersey is 80 percent, which means you must have at least 20 correct answer on the practice test. It is, however, a good idea to aim a little higher when preparing for the real thing. Take enough tests to make sure you can reach a score of 92 percent without any problems and that you truly understand the answers.
Who Must Take the NJ Knowledge Test?
All first-time applicants are required to pass knowledge, vision, and road tests.
If you are under 21 years old you must pass the NJ MVC’s Graduated Driver License (GDL) program.
If you move to New Jersey and have a valid out-of-state non-provisional driver license issued by any of the 50 states or District of Columbia, the knowledge test is usually waived.
All out-of-country applicants, including U.S. possessions and territories, must pass the knowledge test and may be required to pass a road test.
New Jersey Knowledge Test
The knowledge test is based on information in the New Jersey driver manual and includes questions on traffic laws, rules and regulations. You will be given 50 multiple-choice questions. To pass you must correctly answer 40 of the 50 questions (80%).
The test is administered on a computer-based system.
New Jersey written knowledge tests are offered in the following languages: English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Japanese.
For other languages, you may use an approved interpreter. The interpreter can be a full-time faculty member of a state-accredited college or university with proper identification, a priest, minister, rabbi or other religious leader of a recognized organization with proper credentials, or an approved Department of State interpreter.
Oral tests are only offered in English and Spanish.
If you are hearing-impaired you can take the knowledge test with an MVC approved Department of State interpreter. The interpreter must be certified by the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and listed with the New Jersey Division of the Deaf or evaluated by the Division of the Deaf and on the approved list of that division’s interpreters. The interpreter’s fee for hearing-impaired applicants will be paid by MVC.
