Permit Practice Tests for Your Georgia Permit
This series of practice tests designed to help you pass the knowledge exam and get your Georgia instructional permit or full driver’s license.
Tests are based on the information in the Georgia Drivers Manual and previous exams.
Each test has 20 questions with a passing score of 75% (15 correct answers).
Since these permit practice tests are a learning tool and a study help, you should aim higher than 15 correct answers on each test. If you miss more than 2 questions on a test, you aren’t ready for the real exam.
What You Should Know about the Georgia Knowledge Test
The real Georgia knowledge exam consists of two tests:
- The Road Sign Test – 20 questions
- The Road Rules Test – 20 questions
To pass the exam you need 15 correct answers on each test.
The Road Rules Test will make sure you understand important traffic rules, Georgia laws, driver responsibility, and safe driving practices.
What if You Fail the Georgia Knowledge Test?
The first time you fail the written test, you can take it again the next day. Use this option, if you almost reached the passing score and know which mistakes you made.
If you had too many errors, postpone your next attempt a few days. Use this break to read the manual again and take more practice tests. Driversprep.com is a good resource with many permit practice tests.
Should you fail a second attempt, there is a mandatory waiting period of 7 days.
Remember, there is a fee (currently $10) every time you take the knowledge exam. So, don’t waste your money by not being fully prepared for the test.
Don’t Try to Cheat
Don’t try to cheat on the knowledge exam or let somebody else take the test for you.
- You can not bring books, manuals, papers, pens or pencils into the testing area.
- Turn off your cell phone or leave it with a friend. All use of cell phones, text messaging devices, and other types of wireless devices are prohibited in the testing area.
- Don’t talk to anyone during the test. If you have any questions, direct them to the examiner administering the test.
If you don’t follow these rules, your test is terminated and recorded as a failure.
In some situations, consequences may be severe and DDS will suspend you from re-testing for a longer period.
What about Cheat Sheets?
Many websites and companies offer what they call cheat sheets.
They are not intended to be used to cheat on the actual test. A cheat sheet is merely a set of questions and answers used for quick reference and learning. They serve the same purpose as these permit practice tests.
While cheat sheets are helpful, the represent what is referred to as passive learning. They give you the impression that learning can be achieve by just memorizing questions and answers.
Experts will tell you that this may work in some situations, but that you are much better off with active learning.
Active learning is centered around writing, talking, problem solving, and reflecting.
