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.
  3. You will still need a signed MV3001 Instruction Permit Application Form signed by your Driving School. The MV3001 is mailed to your house once you are enrolled in our BTW Course and are within about a week of turning 15 1/2.
    • NOTE: Remember our signature is only valid for 60 days, so you must get your permit and begin driving within 60 days.
