Let’s get ready for your Arkansas DMV Permit Test

This DMV practice exam was recently updated for 2022 and includes 40 of the most important road signs and regulations questions straight from the official 2022 AR Driver Handbook. While Arkansas’ regulations vary from those of many other states in that it allows for unaccompanied drivers as young as 14, every prospective driver of any age must still pass a DMV exam. The AK knowledge exam, which you must pass in order to get your learner’s permit, consists of 25 questions. You must properly respond to 20 of them. If you fail the knowledge exam, you have five days to retake it. If you pass, you will be issued a learner’s permit that is good for 12 months. In addition to the other criteria for your learner’s permit, if you are under the age of 18, you must provide documentation that you are enrolled in school and have a grade point average of 2.0 or above. The exam will be delivered on a computer with multiple-choice questions. Once at the examination kiosk at the Arkansas State Police testing center, you have the option of doing your knowledge test orally.
