While you have probably taken multiple choice quizzes before and don't need much coaching on the ways of this exam, we want you to get the most out of the practice permit test, so let's do a quick overview of the features available to you, a few approaches to the exam that work best and some of the common mistakes you can avoid.  This DMV practice test VA quiz consists of 20 multiple choice questions on traffic rules and road signs, every question provides you with three or four answers and only one of the answers is correct.  The reason why we have chosen the multiple choice format is quite simple - the real VA DMV permit test at your local DMV office will have nothing but multiple choice questions and you want to start getting used to the format right from the start.  The first mistake made by more than a few students is not reading all of the provided answers before indicating the correct one.  As soon as they reach an answer that seems right, they click on it, trying to get through the DMV practice test as quickly as possible.  Don't do that!  It is quite common for Virginia DMV permit test questions to have couple of answers that seem very much alike at first glance, yet only one of them is actually correct. The DMV is looking for the most thorough, most detailed answer, so make sure to read through all of the provided options and choose the one that fits best.  Don't worry about the time, this free Virginia DMV practice test is not timed and you can take as long as you need to answer all of the questions (you have plenty of time to think on difficult questions during the real VA permit test too). 

This online DMV VA practice test is graded on the fly and you are advised on any mistakes you make immediately after choosing an answer.  Should you happen to answer a DMV question incorrectly (and we wouldn't be worrying about that too much at first, keep in mind that this is a PRACTICE permit test and you are here to learn, making mistakes is part of the learning process), the practice test will stop you, display the correct answer immediately and provide you with a detailed explanation for that answer.  Students who are strapped for the time usually skimp on reading those explanations, rushing through the DMV practice test and avoiding anything they perceive as a slow-down.  A dire mistake.  Reading these explanations helps you understand the driving rules better and memorize answers to these Virginia DMV test questions faster.  Sure, skipping these explanations will save you about a minute while you are taking this DMV practice permit test, but what about the time you will have to invest into retaking the exam over and over again?  

Once you finish all 20 questions in your DMV Virginia practice test, you are taken to a page with your results, where you can see your overall score and all of the questions you have happened to miss.  Review these questions once again and then use your final grade to determine your next steps.  Those who have managed to answer 18 or more sample questions correctly - great job, you are good to proceed to the next VA DMV practice test and start learning some new questions!  Sixteen to seventeen correct answers - you are doing well, but you are not quite there yet and may want to repeat this DMV permit practice test once again to raise your score!  Anything less than 16 correct answers and we recommend that you start supplementing the practice quiz with reading the drivers handbook!

Since we have mentioned the book, let us touch down on the subject for just a little longer.  The book is truly the best Virginia DMV permit test study guide you can get your hands on, yet it is one of the most ignored study resources.  It's reputation of being too lengthy and not overly exciting pushes students away and most of them go into the DMV office without as much as opening the book once.  However, there is a simple fact you need to consider - the DMV test is based exclusively on the information in the book!  There's really not a question on the exam you can't answer with the help of the manual and this is what makes it such an awesome study resources!  Maximize your chances of passing the knowledge test and read the handbook while you are working on this 2017 DMV practice test for VA!
