How to Use the Learner Practice Tests
Most of us don’t like to read a manual. It just takes too long and we will probably just give up before finishing it. That is most likely why you searched for website like this. You want the quick answers without putting too much effort into it. Right?
Each of our TX sample test has 25 random questions picked from a database with more than 1,000 questions. This is your guarantee that you cover everything you need to know for the final exam. But practice tests only help if you use them correctly.
Be active. Compare questions and answers in the test with information in the Texas Driver Handbook. It is a good idea to keep the handbook handy and use it to look up questions and answers when you are uncertain.
While these practice tests give you all the answers you need, memorizing them is no guarantee of success on the Texas licensing test. If you put isolated phrases or pieces of information in the wrong context you are very likely to get facts mixed up or even wrong.
When taking a practice test, stop and think for a second or two after each question. Is this familiar? Would it share a hashtag with something else? Take a second look at the incorrect choices. Knowing what is wrong is just as important as knowing what is right.
When is the Texas Knowledge Test Required?
If you apply for your first original Texas license or learners permit, you must always pass a knowledge test.
If you are under 25 years, you must take a driver education course before applying for a learner’s license. This course includes the DPS approved knowledge exam. You don’t have to take any other knowledge test for your permit if you pass this course.
The written test is not required if you are and adult who hold and surrender a valid, unexpired driver license from another U.S. state or U.S. territory. This also applies if you are 18 years or older and hold a valid out-of-country license from Canada, France, South Korea or Germany. All other citizens with an out-of-country license must pass the written knowledge exam.
If you are under 18 years with a license or permit from a country other than the U.S. or Canada, you must always pass the knowledge test. There is no exception for holders of licenses from France, South Korea and Germany.
What You Should Know about the DMV Written Test
The written test is based in information available in the Texas Driver Handbook. Make sure you read the handbook. Skipping it is a risky tactic!
The Texas Driver Handbook is available at your local DPS office or via the Department’s website.
You take your test at an computerized test station. Read the instructions before you start. You can skip questions that you don’t know the answer to. They will appear again at the end of the rest, unless you have already reached a passing score. The test will finish when you have passed.
If you don’t pass the knowledge test, you cannot take it again the same day. Go home and practice some more!
After 90 days or three failed attempts, you must apply for a license again and pay a new application fee.
How Many Questions are on the Texas DMV Written Test?
The passing score is 70%. You must answer 21 out 30 questions correctly.

At this point, Texas knowledge tests are only available in English and Spanish. You must understand road signs written in English to pass the test.
You may bring a translator, but the translator is not allowed to help you during the test.
If you have trouble reading, you may ask for an oral test with a certified ASL interpreter. Contact your local driver license office at least four business days before you wish to take the exam.
