This practice test is for learning and we are with you every moment you are taking the exam. If you find yourself stuck at a particularly hard question, do not hesitate to use one of the study aids you have available. This online NYS permit practice test places two perks at your disposal: hints, that provide more details on the question; and the 50/50 option that will remove two incorrect answers from the system, so you will only have to choose between two remaining options. We recommend that you always use the "HINT" option first and resort to the 50/50 button only when you are at real loss.
The passing score for this New York DMV permit practice test is 70% (yes, just like the real thing!), so you need to answer at least 14 questions correctly to pass. Having said that, we urge you to aim much, much higher! Answering fourteen permit test questions is BARELY passing and you are really not leaving yourself any safety cushions. We believe that you should work on the practice quiz until you score at least 90% every time you take it. Not knowing an answer to a question or two is understandable, but you should really not miss more than a few questions. Once you are satisfied with your score, move on to the next permit practice test or jump straight to the NY permit test simulator!
