Let’s get ready for your Alaska DMV Permit Test

This DMV practice test has just been updated for 2022 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from official AK Driver Handbooks. In order to be allowed on roads in Alaska, drivers must pass a written knowledge exam that consists of 20 multiple choice foes with 16 correct answers required in order to earn their license. When you are trying to get your learner’s permit, the only type of test that matters are a knowledge exam. All other types require different passes depending on what license level they will ultimately upgrade or qualify for in Alaska’s provisional/regular system (i.e., from 14-16). You can get a learner’s permit for $15, and if you want to learn how to drive effectively, this DMV practice test will help. It has the same information as your real exam do so that not only are you prepared but also feel confident on paper when taking it!
