This Texas DMV practice test has just been updated for July 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 TX Driver Handbook. The official Texas permit test requires a passing score of 80%. As it contains 30 questions, you’ll need to answer 24 of them correctly. Texas now has a Graduated Driver License (GDL) Program, so anyone under 18 must first get a learner license, and then get a provisional license valid until they turn 18 years old. A learner license is for anyone between the ages of 15 and 18 years of age; to get one, you must pass a vision exam, the non-driving portion of a driver’s education course, and a knowledge exam, otherwise known as the permit test. You can find information about topics on the permit test, the GDL program, any license fees you’ll need to pay, and more in the Texas Driver Handbook. This DMV Practice Test will prepare you to pass the written test to get either your learner license or pass the knowledge test to get a regular license if you are over 18 years old.
