The final stage of your driver’s education will be passing the Rhode Island permit test. That written exam covers rules of the road, road signs, traffic signals, driving laws and everything else you have been studying, on a 50-question test paper. The DMV test is not an easy assessment to pass first time, as you will need to answer at least 40 questions correctly. Getting through the permit test with a pass will take hours of study and some serious revision, but it will all be worth it when you are awarded a learner’s permit and can climb into the driver’s seat for the first time. Find out what sort of questions you will be expected to answer during the permit test today, with this free RI DMV practice test for 2024 applicants.

This DMV practice permit test for Rhode Island residents is designed for use alongside the DMV manual and your other drivers ed materials. All students must read the manual thoroughly before seeking to take the final permit test, as it is the official study guide for the exam which is compiled and endorsed by the DMV. While you may be tempted to try and get through the Rhode Island DMV permit test without reading the entire study guide, we strongly advise against it. Our RI DMV practice tests are useful revision tools, but they simply cannot provide the depth of information you will need during the exam. If you overestimate the strength of your theory knowledge and fail the assessment, you will be required to wait a further 8 days before attempting it again. Students who are taking the general knowledge exam through community college will be especially inconvenienced by a first-time fail, as their second attempt will need to be taken at the DMV headquarters in Cranston. The best way to avoid the disappointment and inconvenience of having to re-sit the permit test, is to use our Rhode Island DMV practice test and the drivers manual side by side.

Our RI practice permit test is one of several quizzes we provide, each of which you will need at some point throughout your studies. This is an entry-level test which is designed to be an easy introduction for newer driving students. It presents just 20 permit test questions and requires 16 correct answers; this reflects the 80% pass requirement used during the real permit test. To help you get started, we have also included some study aids on the DMV learners permit practice test for Rhode Island residents, which can be used to pin-point the correct permit test answers. When you run into trouble with a challenging question, click ‘50/50’ to eliminate some of the incorrect responses or ‘hint’ to access a helpful hint about the solution you are looking for.

All our RI practice permit tests include these study aids, except the realistic permit test simulator.

If you are ready to move on to something new, why not try our DMV signs practice test next? That quiz works exactly like the one on this page, except it only contains questions relating to road signs.
