DMV Test Information

The written test given by your state Division of Motor Vehicles (or whatever it is called in your state) is intended to assess your knowledge of road rules and driving regulations. The reference source for the material on your permit test is the official driver's handbook for your state.

Unfortunately, many of these handbooks are over 100 pages long...with the important information interspersed with the meaningless information. That is why Test-Guide is here to help...we distill the information from the handbook to the most important information and then quiz you on it.
