Pennsylvania Permit Practice Test (PA) 2015

Getting started on the permit test - one of the hardest steps you'll have to make.  Reading the drivers manual makes you sleepy, road signs all look alike, traffic penalties won't stick...  We've walked that road ourselves, this is why we believe that practice quizzes is one of the most efficient ways to prepare for the knowledge exam!  Convenience, fun and practicality - this free Pennsylvania permit practice test (PA) 2015 has everything you need to prepare for the written test and pass it on your first visit to PennDOT!

We don't want you to start feeling overwhelmed as soon as you start studying and this is exactly why we are not making you start with a hundred-question practice quiz.  Start small - grow big, and we'll get you started with this minute PA permit practice test that contains just 20 questions and can be completed within 5 minutes!  This makes the practice quiz especially useful for those who don't have much time - such low time commitment means that you can do the practice quiz without having to set aside separate "study sessions".  Take the permit practice test on the bus to school, during your lunch break, take it on your smartphone just before you go to bed - whenever you have a few minutes to spare, you can invest the time towards preparing for the PennDOT exam!

All of the sample permit test questions on this free PA learners permit practice test are multiple choice, with three or four answers provided for every question.  Out of the provided options, only one of the answers is correct.  Don't rush with choosing the first answer you see that just seems to fit and read through all of the provided options before making your choice.  One of the common "tricks" used by the Pennsylvania DMV and recreated by the permit practice test is to outfit a question with couple of answers that seem to be very similar at first glance.  If you charge through the exam, trying to get to the last question as quickly as possible, you are likely to miss the details and answer most of these questions incorrectly.  A word of advice - don't try to beat the clock while you are working on this Pennsylvania permit practice test or when you are taking the real exam - you've got plenty of time to think and analyze each and every question.  Slow and steady wins the race - while it is completely untrue about any kind of racing, it sure fits the permit test perfectly!
