Want to get your hands on all Iowa permit test answers?  Easy! The DOT is giving it away with the official 2016 Iowa drivers manual! Yes, the book most first-time drivers license applicants will do anything to avoid has answers to all permit test questions! Have you ever asked yourself why so many people refer to the manual as the "permit test book"?  Now you know why - the entire knowledge test is based on this DOT booklet and nothing else!  Grab your copy of the Iowa drivers handbook and keep reading to find out what chapters of the book you will be tested on!

If you are anything like us, you want to cut to the chase and not have to sift through the entire drivers manual for pieces of information that will be on the DMV written test.  We can help!  Don't worry about the first 12 pages of the book and jump straight to chapter 2 - Traffic Signs and Rules of the Road.  We recommend that you print those couple of pages that list Iowa road signs for the permit test, it really helps if you post them somewhere you can see them often and keep them there until you pass the drivers license test. This kind of constant visual reminder helps you to memorize the signs faster and ensures you don't miss any.

As far as skipping parts of the book, this is as far as it goes - the DOT has already done a wonderful job of weeding unnecessary information out of the driving test manual, so you can concentrate on learning the materials in those chapters that follow and not worry about not being tested on them, because you will be! Make sure you pay extra attention when you go through chapters that cover traffic fines, penalties, the effects of alcohol and drugs on your driving ability - these are very important (and complex) subjects, you will get plenty of questions on these topics during your DOT written test, so don't try and cheat yourself here!

The Iowa drivers permit book has a short self-study practice test at page 52 and "short" is exactly the word to describe it - the test has only 10 questions, which is definitely not enough to help you assess your current level of preparation for the knowledge exam.  Don't worry, though, as we have plenty of free practice permit tests for you to work on!  Start with the very first Iowa permit practice test for beginners and move on through the line up of sample exams - your skills will develop along with the rising difficulty of those tests.  Make sure you try yourself against the Simulator before you go into the DOT office for the real thing - it's an Iowa permit test with 25 questions change change every time you begin the exam, just like on the real test!  You should aim at scoring no less than 90% on each one of the practice tests before moving on to the next exam!

Remember - practice permit tests are a great study tool, but they are no substitute to reading the official Iowa drivers manual 2016!  Start working on sample quizzes only once you've gone through the book at least once!  Good luck!
