If you compare permit test books across the country, you will realize that the MVA in Maryland has really done a great job at keeping the book as concise and straight to the point as possible. Some states feel that the book needs to be crammed with everything they have and opt into including a whole bunch of information that has little to no relevance to a first-time drivers license applicant. A good example of this approach would be including information on commercial drivers license into the MVA book, a topic most of us would find completely useless and not relevant to the task at hand. The MVA does nothing of the sorts and so the drivers manual is just 40 pages long. We recommend that you read the entire book, but if you really, REALLY wanted to skip something, you could throw out the first two sections of the book, as they deal with license requirements and describe the testing process you are probably familiar with. Everything else you find in the book will be on your MVA permit test and we suggest that you read it as thoroughly as possible, no matter how irrelevant the topic may seem in the table of contents. One of the common mistakes is to ignore chapters that involve motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians - don't do that! There is a reason these topics are covered in the Maryland MVA book - they will be on the test and you don't want to risk losing points just because you could not be bothered with reading a few short pages!
If there's one thing the 2017 Maryland MVA permit test book is missing it is permit practice tests that could be used for self-assessment. Don't worry though as we've got you covered on this front! We have developed a bunch of practice tests that have all of the Maryland permit test answers and they are completely, 100% free! Start with the very first basic MVA practice test and move up through the line all the way to the MVA test Simulator, a practice quiz designed to help you understand what the real DMV written test is like so there will be no surprises when you turn up at the office! Remember that practice tests are no substitute to reading the permit test book, you should do both to maximize your chances of passing the exam! Good luck!
