The Benefits of a DMV Practice Test for Your Texas Driver's License

When teens are asked why they want their driver's licenses, they often reply, "for freedom and independence." But even getting a Texas learner's permit can be difficult, and if you don't comply with certain restrictions on your permit and license, the freedom and independence you wanted so much and worked so hard for can quickly disappear. That's why skimming the handbook and memorizing a few facts that are quickly forgotten as soon as you pass your written test is not a good use of your time. You should take a practice permit test course, and you can do so online, from the comfort of your home.

It is difficult to learn enough from the Texas Driver's Handbook to pass the written test at the driver's license office. Simply reading the handbook is not enough. It is almost impossible for anyone to anticipate every type of question that might be asked on the test. The questions on the written test are typically drawn from a database of over 500 questions. Every test is random, so talking to your friends about what their tests were like won't help you. And questions on the test are written with the assumption that you understand the entire handbook, so knowing just a few parts of the handbook well won't be sufficient for you to achieve the minimum passing score on the test, which is 70% in Texas.

A practice permit test course helps you pass the written test because it replicates the experience of taking the test at the driver's license office. Often, people are surprised when they take a free online written test because they realize how little they remember even after reading the handbook. You don't want that surprise when you're already at the driver's license office! If you fail the written exam for your Texas learner's permit, you'll have to get your parent or guardian to make the trip all over again. With an online practice course, you can take tests as many times as it takes to feel totally comfortable with the material. Some courses even offer a guarantee that you will pass your test at the driver's license office after passing the practice tests a certain number of times.

But an online practice permit test course does more than help you pass the written test to get your learner's permit. It helps you remember information that will help you keep your Texas driver's license and make you a safer driver. For example, Texas has a Graduated Driver License program that specifies a variety of restrictions for new drivers, including hours during which you may not drive alone. If you don't know those laws, you won't follow them - and not following them could mean losing your Texas learner's permit or license. And of course, if you don't know and follow the rules of the road, you could get traffic tickets or, even worse, have a crash that results in property damage, injury or death. It would be much more devastating to cause harm to someone else, perhaps one of your friends, or to lose your own life, than it would be to have your driver's license taken away.

Hopefully, you'll have your Texas driver's license for many years. It makes sense to invest time and energy into earning it so you'll have a smooth start.
