Who Must Take the Pennsylvania Knowledge Exam?
You must pass a knowledge exam if you have never been licensed before.
If you have a driver license from another state, but let your license expire for more than 6 months, you must also take the test.
PennDot will waive the test if your out-of-state driver license is valid or expired six months or less.
With an out-of-country license you must pass the knowledge test unless you are a citizen of France, Germany, or Canada and hold a valid license from your home country.
