Looking for a free CT permit test study guide?  You have just found one!  There's a reason why the 2016 Connecticut drivers manual is frequently referred to as the "permit book" - the entire DMV written test is based exclusively on the information you can find in the manual!  You could say that the handbook has answers to every permit test question, it really does, it's just a matter of knowing where to look!  Download your CT DMV manual now and read on to find out how to get the most out of reading the book!

If there is one good thing that can be said about the 2016 Connecticut DMV permit manual, it is that the book is not excessively large.  First time permit test takers will only need to cover pages 11 through 51 - that's only 40 pages, not too bad compared to some other states where an equivalent amount of information is spread over the space of well over 100 pages. 

However, when it comes to presentation, the CT DMV does not score any points with us.  The DMV permit test manual lacks virtually any images, it is filled with pages of fine print, with paragraphs crammed so close together you will have trouble telling one chapter from the other. Those few images that did make it to the book are all black and white, as if it cost extra to sprinkle a little color over them.  Even road signs and study sheets are black and white, and you are expected to learn how to differentiate road signs not only by their shape, but also by their color!  You are definitely better off studying road signs elsewhere, as the book does not really make it easy for you.

We have another bone to pick with the CT drivers manual and that is the study questions that were included into the book.  Fifty pages of road rules, defensive driving techniques, road signs and pavement markings, and we get 10 study questions to help us learn all that.  Honestly, we could come up with twice as many questions within 10 minutes just for the section that describes traffic crashes and tells your how to behave should you be involved in one, and this is exactly what we did!  If you are looking for a proper CT DMV practice test, you're in luck, as we have developed an entire collection of sample quizzes with over 500 DMV questions to help you prepare for the knowledge exam.  We have a practice permit test for you no matter what your current level of preparation is, just pick an appropriate level of difficulty and we will show you a set of sample questions that are right for you!

Despite all of the things stated above, we still recommend that you browse through the DMV manual at least once before you head over to the DMV.  The book is poorly organized and does not look great, but this does not change the fact that it is filled with useful information your CT DMV permit test is based upon.  Start early, read a few pages of the drivers manual every day and good luck at the office!
