You need a Nevada driver’s license or learner’s permit if you want to drive on Nevada streets and highways. Your vision will be checked to make sure you meet the minimum vision standards. The Nevada written test covers the information found in the NV DMV Driver’s Manual, and includes questions on traffic laws, road rules, road signs, highway signs and markings and safe driving practices. Use of a cellular phone during a drive test will result in automatic failure. The Nevada DMV written test consists of 50 questions, and you need at least 40 correct answers to pass (80%).
