Looking for a permit test study guide that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, yet has all of the 2016 written test questions and answers?  You've landed in the right place!  The official Utah drivers handbook is the book you've been looking for: it is published by the DMV, the real drivers license test is based exclusively on the information you can find in the manual and it comes absolutely free of any charges!  Download your copy of the drivers manual read on and let us show you what chapters of the book really matter for your DMV knowledge test!

Before we go any further, let us clear one of the biggest misconceptions that confuses first-time drivers license applicants out there: the Utah drivers license test is not an open book exam! You will not have a liberty of searching the drivers manual for answers while taking the written test at the DMV office.  The explanation for this is quite simple: you don't have the time to search the book for answers when you're out there on the road, you are expected to know the rules by heart and that is exactly what the DMV wants to see on the test - you proving that you have learned the rules of the road well enough to be allowed behind the wheel. 

The good news is that you don't need to memorize the entire Utah drivers permit handbook to be able to pass the knowledge test.  In fact, the book is a bit overly comprehensive and quite a lot of the information you find there will not appear on the DMV written test (despite it's possible usefulness to someone else).  If you are just studying for the permit test, we recommend that you start with chapter 4 of the 2016 Utah drivers handbook, titled "Ready to Drive".  From this point on, you will need to read all the way through chapter 12 - Special Driving Challenges.  This last chapter helps you to understand what's involved in night driving, driving in the rain, driving on snowy roads and meeting other on-road challenges.  Pay attention when going through this chapter - not only are you tested on this information during the drivers license test, but it may actually save your life one day (no matter how pathetic this may sound right now).

Every chapter of the Utah drivers license handbook ends with a few sample questions that can help you understand how well you've learned the materials presented in that chapter.  The key to the test is usually provided on the following page.  If you need more sample permit test questions and answers, head over to our practice test page and help yourself to the variety of DMV practice tests with over 500 state-specific online questions!  We suggest that you start with the very first Utah permit practice test for beginners and work your way up to more challenging exams, such as the DMV cheat sheet and the permit test Simulator with 50 questions! Play around with these sample exams and try to score at least 90% on each and every one of them, this is a good indication that you are ready to hit the DMV office!
