Anyone who operates a motor vehicle on the public roads in Massachusetts must have a valid driver's license or driving permit. An RMV clerk will screen your vision when you apply for a learner's permit or driver's license. A learner’s permit gives you permission to drive while you practice your driving skills and prepare for your road test. The RMV written knowledge test measures your understanding of Massachusetts road signs, road rules and safe driving practices. Everything you need to know is covered in the RMV Driver’s Manual. The Massachusetts RMV knowledge test consists of 25 questions, and you need 18 correct answers to pass (72%).
