It lets you become familiar with the test and helps you to decide if you are ready to attempt the test. It also lets experienced drivers test their knowledge of the road rules.

The practice DKT looks and operates like the real test . It consists of 45 questions drawn from the DKT question bank and is available in English and nine (9) other languages (Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Greek, Korean, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese).

Unlike the actual test, the practice DKT will allow you to complete the entire 45-question test irrespectiveof the number of incorrect answers. At the completion of the practice DKT you will be advisedwhether you would have passed or failed the test."
