While you may have heard the opinion that there is no single recipe for passing the Texas drivers permit test that fits everyone, we believe otherwise. There is a solution that works for absolutely everyone, as long as they use it the right way. We don't want to sound obvious, but STUDYING for the exam is the only way to pass it on your first visit to the DPS, guaranteed. Simple, right? You'd think so, but failure rates for the exam tell us a completely different story. More than a half DPS visitors who arrive to take the learner's permit test for the first time leave the office empty-handed. A number of different theories exist, trying to explain this unwillingness to prepare for the DPS exam, but we believe that all these things can be explained by the fact that most students overestimate their competence when it comes to the rules of the road. It's easy to fall into this trap: driving is such a big part of our lives we take it for granted. You see other drivers operating their vehicles, you use roadways as a pedestrian or a cyclist, you pick up on a few basic rules and you grow comfortable in believing that this is all there to driving. The DPS written test comes as a loud wake up call - the level of proficiency you are required to demonstrate exceeds your expectations by an order of magnitude. Don't worry, though, as our free Texas DPS practice permit test is here to help you step your game up! The only thing we ask of you is a little bit of your time and attention!
The DPS practice test consists of multiple choice questions on Texas road signs and traffic rules. Of course, when we mention "driving rules", we are slightly generalizing. You can expect to see sample written test questions on defensive driving, driving maneuvers, highway driving, communicating and signalling to other drivers, parking on hills, sharing the road with motorcycles, making sure your vehicle is in good mechanical condition - all of the things you will be tested upon when you turn up at the office to take the real knowledge test. We believe in balance and this is why this DPS practice permit test for Texas covers such a wide array of traffic laws. If you prefer a sample exam that concentrates on a particular part of traffic laws, check out topical exams instead!
The DPS practice quiz features 20 questions and you need to answer no less than 16 of them to pass. Having said this, we do not recommend that you stop working on the exam until you can answer at least 18 questions correctly, without having to call upon study aids or look for answers in the official Texas DPS permit test study guide (we recommend that you ALWAYS read the drivers handbook before you start working on sample exams). Sure, this grade is somewhat higher than the one the DPS will expect of you, but there is nothing wrong with being prepared better than the guy next to you! Remember, you are not paying a dime for this exam and you will have to spend extra time and money if you fail the test at the DPS! Why not play it safe and arrive to the office with solid knowledge of Texas driving rules? If it was up to us, we would dismiss drivers license application fees for those who pass the DPS written test with a perfect score and double it for those who fail the exam, how is that for motivation?
