When you’ve studied the manual, use these practice tests to check your progress and see if you are ready for the real examination or not.

Don’t use the tests as a replacement for studying the manual. Practice tests are only a supplement to help you learn faster.

Make sure you fully understand all answers. Just memorizing questions and answers is a risky study tactic.

Passing Score in Vermont is 80 Percent

The passing score in Vermont is 80 percent, which means you must answer at least 16 of 20 questions correctly to pass the examination.

Since there are only 20 questions it is easy to make four or more mistakes and not pass. This is why you should aim for a 100% score on the practice tests. It gives you a better margin for errors when attempting the real exam.

Who Must Pass the Vermont Knowledge Test?

To get an original Vermont Driver License all first-time applicants must pass the knowledge test.

When you apply for your first Learner Permit or Junior Operator License you are subject to the rules in the Vermont Graduated Driver License law.

When you move to Vermont with a valid out-of-state license or an out-of-state license that has been expired for one year or less, DMV will normally waive the knowledge and road tests. Should you let your out-of-state license expire for more than one year, you must take the same tests as a first-time applicant.

If another state has suspended, revoked, denied or cancelled your driver license, you cannot get a Vermont license.

With an out-of-state junior operator’s license, you must successfully pass the required examinations, show proof of successful completion of a driver education program, and have completed 40 hours of driving. You are subject to all provisions in the Vermont Graduated License law, unless you have held the Junior Operator’s License in the other state for a period of at least six months.

With an out-of-country license you must always pass the knowledge test before DMV will give you a Vermont license.

If you are hearing impaired and want an interpreter, you must ask for one when you schedule your appointment.

Oral Tests

The computerized test has audio support so that you can listen to all questions.

If you have trouble reading or any another disability that requires a person-to-person oral test, you should inform DMV when making an appointment. DMV will provide you with assistance and schedule an oral test. At an oral test, the examiner will give you a road sign identification test and then read the rest of the written test to you.


If you speak another language and have difficulty reading English, you may use a dictionary and also ask the examiner to assist you.

Should you wish to have an interpreter other than an ASL interpreter, you must provide the interpreter yourself and that person must have a valid driver license from a U.S. State or territory.
