It's finally here, the first New York state practice permit test that has been developed to the standards of the 2016 New York permit test!  Twenty multiple choice questions on road rules and road signs to get you started on the way towards a learners permit!  While this test is great for beginners, those who already have a few practice exams under the belt should not shy away - the quiz will show you exactly where you stand right now and help you pinpoint any troublesome area you may have!

Just like the real DMV permit test, our practice permit test for NY consists only of multiple choice questions.  Every questions will present you with four possible answers, only one of the answers being correct.  If you believe that more than one answer is right, choose the one you believe fits best.  This DMV permit practice test is interactive and all questions are graded immediately, you don't have to finish the whole exam to find out where you went wrong!  In addition to that, whenever you answer a question incorrectly, the practice permit test will show you a detailed explanation for the correct answer.  Make sure to read it as it will help you remember the question better!

While the NYS DMV will definitely not let you cheat on the exam, there is nothing wrong with taking a few shortcuts with this 2016 New York practice permit test! In fact, we have built additional study aids into the test for you!  You don't have to use them, but they are there for you to lean on should you find yourself stuck at some point! There are two ways to get assistance with a particularly hard question on the practice test: to receive a "hint", which should point your feet in the right direction, or to use a "50/50" option that will hide two incorrect answers from the quiz, leaving you with a pretty simple choice of selecting between the remaining two answers! Once again, you do not have to cheat if you don't want to and if you are trying to evaluate whether you are ready for the real NY DMV permit test, we advise that you refrain from using these options!

This online NYC practice permit test is based on the 2016 drivers manual, the same book the DMV uses for the exam.  Haven't read the book yet?  Go ahead and start reading it now! That's right, drop everything else you are doing, pick up the book and start reading it!  It takes some time, since the book is quite extensive and not very exciting, but if you want to pass the permit test the first time, the book needs to be read!  The good news is that you do not have to read the whole book, since not all of it appears on the permit test!  You just need to go over Part 2 and Part 3 in the manual, which amounts to Chapters 4-12.  You can skip everything else, but do read those chapters of the book before you start working on this NYS practice permit test!

One of the questions we frequently hear is "are these the real NY permit test questions, am I studying the right stuff?"  Yes, you are learning what you should be learning for the permit test and you are bound to encounter some of these questions when you hit your local DMV office!  However, the DMV uses a large database of questions and there is no guarantee that you will get these exact questions every time! That's why we urge you not to limit yourself to taking only this practice quiz and go over all other  practice permit tests we have on the site!  The New York DMV practice permit test simulator is your ultimate challenge and you should work on it until you can score over 90% every time you take the quiz! Yes, we know that the passing score for the real test is less than 90%, but we want you to be safe and feel confident when you are at the DMV, so please, please spend an extra hour on practicing before you hit the office!

Without further ado, we give you this free New York practice permit test 2016!  Make the most of it and good luck at the DMV!
