We believe in such thing as a learning curve.  You start with something easy and you work your way up to more complex things.  It does not matter whether you are trying to learn math, languages or driving rules - you have to learn to walk before you can run. This online permit practice test for NC is not an exception from that rule, it is just the first step of the ladder you will climb to reach your final goal - obtaining a North Carolina learner's permit.  We know that the first step is the hardest of all and we are here to help!  We have prepared a number of study aids that will make learning the rules of the road and traffic signs more entertaining, engaging and fun! Those with an inquisitive mind might have already noticed our "HELP ME" section, which is located in the bottom part of the practice permit test.  The section has two options: a HINT button and a 50/50 button.  These are the study aids you will use whenever you find the permit test question a bit hard.  Clicking on the HINT button will provide you with more information about the question, while the 50/50 option gets rid of two incorrect answers completely.  Play around with these "cheats", but don't abuse them too much, we still want you to memorize answers to those permit test questions!

If you don't have a copy of the NC drivers handbook yet - now is a good time to get it.  Don't worry, you don't have to go to the DMV, you can download a copy of the manual and keep it by your hand whenever you are working on this free NC permit practice test.  We know that some people are reluctant to read the booklet, they find it too extensive and hard to memorize.  It's all right to feel overwhelmed by the amount of the information in the book, but try to skim over it at least once before you start taking practice permit tests, it will give you a good overview of all driving rules.  Don't worry if you can't remember the rules the first time you read the manual, you don't have to and this is what this North Carolina practice permit test is for, it will help you choose which rules are important and which ones can be omitted.  

This 2019 NC permit practice test contains twenty multiple choice questions, each question having four possible answers.  Only one of the answers is correct, keep that in mind whenever you find that more than one answer seem to fit.  The interactive online practice permit test is graded on the go, you can see whether you are right or wrong immediately after choosing an answer and, should you make a mistake, a correct answer is displayed along with a helpful explanation.  Make sure you read these explanations as you take the practice quiz, they really help to commit the rules to memory and ensure that you won't make the same mistake next time!  Once you complete all of the questions from this North Carolina practice permit test, the results page will show you your overall score and allow you to review those questions you have missed.  Keep retaking the DMV practice test until you can answer at least 18 questions correctly every time, once you achieve this score, you can move on to the next practice quiz we have prepared for you!

Good luck, let us know how your DMV visit goes!
