All new drivers must pass the SC DMV permit test to qualify for a learner’s permit. Studying for and passing this assessment will be one of the biggest challenges you face as a first-time driver. The exam will contain 30 questions which are randomly chosen from the DMV exam database, to address all the subjects in the SC driving test study guide. To pass the permit test, students must answer no less than 24 questions on their exam paper correctly. As there is no way to know precisely which rules of the road, road signs and traffic signals will appear during the DMV written test, you will need to be well-versed in all the information in the DMV handbook to stand a good chance of passing. Make sure you reach this level of proficiency and are fully prepared for the permit test, by using this free 2024 DMV practice test South Carolina quiz to challenge your knowledge.

Our DMV SC practice test is slightly shorter than the real DMV permit test, featuring just 20 permit test questions. However, it uses the same 80% cut-off threshold for a pass as the real SC permit test, which means you must answer at least 16 questions correctly. Everything you need to answer questions correctly during this DMV practice permit test – and during the real exam – is included in the official driver’s manual, which is produced, distributed and endorsed by the DMV. Get a free digital copy of the handbook here on or directly from the DMV website. You will need to read all the study material relating to road rules, driving laws, road signs, traffic signals, pavement markings and the other permit test topics contained in the guide, before seeking to take the South Carolina learners permit test. However, it is not essential that you have read the driver’s manual before taking a shot at this SC DMV practice test.

Our SC DMV permit practice test is suitable for experienced driving students and completely new learners, as it includes study aids which can be used to answer questions correctly. There will be no such support available during the real permit test and you will not be permitted access to your permit test study guide. For this reason, we suggest taking full advantage of our incredible learning tools while they are available. Next to all the SC DMV test questions, our two study aids are marked ‘50/50’ and ‘hint’. Use the former tool to remove some of the incorrect DMV written test answers, or the latter tool to generate a clue about the correct response.

The study aids included with this South Carolina DMV permit practice test will improve your knowledge of the subjects discussed in the DMV manual. However, they cannot explain every road rule and road sign with enough detail to get you through the permit test. In addition to memorizing these basic principles of driving, you must know how to apply them in a real-world roadway setting. This is information you can only get from the SC DMV handbook, so you cannot hope to acquire a learner’s permit without reading it. Do not worry if you are not thrilled about the prospect of learning from an extensive written manual, as you can make things more interesting by taking regular breaks to answer some questions on our South Carolina DMV practice tests. Witnessing your final grade on this quiz improve as you progress through the study material will help you to stay motivated, until you are ready for the real SC permit test.
