25 Questions – 20 Correct Answers
The written test by Missouri Driver License Bureau is a 25-question multiple-choice test on a computer. It is known as the written test simply because you got it on paper in the old days.
Test questions span from signs, signals, and common traffics laws to safe driving techniques and what to do in case of an accident.
You must correctly answer at least 20 of the 25 questions. It is a passing score of 80%, which is the most common passing score in United States.
The Missouri test is known for being difficult. Information shows that the failure rate on the knowledge test among young applicants is 61.4%, which is the highest among the states that collect such data.
If you are looking for easier knowledge tests, then Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas or West Virginia is where you should live.
Does Memorizing Answers on Practice Tests Help?
Some applicants will probably say yes. Experts will say no.
Driving theory as described in the Missouri Driver’s Guide should help to prepare new drivers for real life on the road. Good driving skills often come with experience, but all drivers must have good knowledge of traffic rules, signs, and signals, as well as safe driving theory.
Unfortunately, many states don’t change their driver license tests very often. Test format and test questions remain the same. In these states, real questions and answers are often spread on social media. It is tempting to just memorize these questions and answers. Young people who do are also most likely to fail their exam.

If You Are Under 18
Like all states, Missouri has a Graduated Driver License law. This law requires all first-time drivers between 15 and 18 years old to complete a period of supervised driving with a licensed driver (instruction permit), and restricted driving (intermediate license), before getting a full driver license.
While holding an instruction permit a teenager must always drive supervised by a qualified person, grandparent, qualified driving instructor, a qualified driver at least 25 years of age who has been licensed for a minimum of 3 years and has received written permission from the parent or legal guardian, or in case of disability (of the parent, grandparent or guardian), their designee.
During the intermediate phase, a driver with the intermediate license may drive alone except during a late night curfew (1 a.m. to 5 a.m.). The young driver and all passengers must use seat belts, be free of alcohol and drugs, and not have any traffic violations.
