Illinois Practice Permit Test

Get Ready for the Road!

Are you ready to step into the world of Illinois driving? You’ve got an exciting adventure ahead of you, and you can help make it a great experience by being prepared for the initial step: the Permit Test!

Whether you’re in the northern bustle of a Chicago suburb or down in Southern Illinois, the rules are the same, and so is the written test. We provide a practice permit test so that you can know what to expect, and so that you can pass the exam with flying colors! Although driving is a great privilege, it is also a great responsibility that requires foreknowledge and preparation.

What to Expect

The official Illinois 2019 Rules of the Road handbook has pages of information on regulations, rules, penalties, requirements, sign recognition, etc. Although it is highly valuable to get acquainted with this information, you don’t need to feel overwhelmed by it. The actual permit test that you will take at the DMV consists of only 35 questions, and you must answer at least 28 of them correctly.

Studying ahead of time by using the practice permit test is the best way to prepare, even if you think you know all the rules because it incorporates the questions that are most likely to be presented in the actual test! Some of the quiz questions refer to circumstances that most people have never, and may never encounter on the road, so studying is the only way to become aware of the proper answers.

Other Preparations

When you’re on your way to the DMV, don’t forget to bring all of the necessary documents and proofs of identity, and be prepared to take a vision test as well! The driver’s permit fee is $20.00.

It is not necessary to go to the DMV in your specific county or district; for prospective drivers in big cities, it is sometimes more time-efficient to find a small-town DMV that is less busy. And don’t forget that all IL DMVs are always closed on Mondays!
