South Dakota Permit Practice Tests
South Dakota permit practice tests have 25 random questions, just like the real knowledge examination. You must correctly answer 20 questions to pass the examination. A passing score of 80 percent.
Every answer to the exam questions is found in the South Dakota Driver License Manual, so make sure you read it.
After reading the Driver License Manual, you should take practice tests to verify how much you’ve learned. Most likely, you will miss some questions when you start practicing. Read the short comment and look up information in the manual. If you don’t fully understand the answers and why they are correct, find someone to discuss rules and safe driving techniques with. It will help you learn much faster.
Try not to just memorize questions and answers, it is a risky tactic and no real guarantee of passing the exam. Unless you truly know and understand the information in the Driver License Manual, it is hard to pass the examination.
