Let’s get ready for your Virginia DMV Permit Test

This Virginia DMV practice exam has been updated for 2022 and includes 40 questions from the official 2022 VA Driver Handbook. For a Virginia learner’s permit, you must pass a vision test and a two-part knowledge examination. Those under 18 must obtain a 9-month permit. If you are above 18, you must have had your license for 90 days before applying for a new one. The Virginia Driver’s Manual is used for the DMV written exam. The first segment has ten questions about traffic signs, which you must successfully answer before moving on to the second level. The second half will include general topics such as traffic rules and drug legislation. To pass the second level, you must answer 80% of the questions correctly. If you are under the age of 18, you must wait 15 days before retaking the exam, so prepare with our DMV practice test.
