The DMV Written Test

After enrolling in a Behind the Wheel Course, the driving school conducting your Behind the Wheel training will get you a signed MV3001 form which you will need in order to get your Instruction Permit. The signature on that form MUST be less than 60 days old and a fresh signature is required if you delay going to the DMV to take the written test and to collect your Instruction Permit.

The Written Test is divided into 2 parts. A 50 question "General Knowledge" test and a 15 question "Highway Road Sign" test. The test is very basic and most students will have no trouble passing the test on the first attempt.

  1. Plan to arrive at least 1 hour prior to closing
  2. The test is offered free of charge and is a touch-screen computer based test.

What to take with you to the DMV

  1. Your ORIGINAL birth certificate or Passport. (a photo copy is not acceptable)
  2. Your Social Security Card.
  3. A MV3001 Instruction Permit Application Form signed by your Behind the wheel Driving School.
    1. Check with your Behind the Wheel driving school about their procedure for getting you the MV3001
      • NOTE: Remember the signature on the MV3001 is only valid for 60 days, so you must get your permit and begin driving within 60 days.
