UT DMV PERMIT TEST

View instructions
Every resident of Utah who drives a motor vehicle on any public roadway must have a valid Utah driver license or learner permit. To get a driver’s license, you must pass a vision, written and driving test. The written test covers the information found in the Utah DMV Driver’s Manual, and will include questions on road signs, road rules, safe driving practices, traffic laws, license sanctions, as well as questions specific to the class of license you are applying for. The Utah written knowledge test consists of 25 questions, and you need at least 20 correct answers to pass (80% or higher). Practice with this sample DMV test and study the driver’s manual to get ready for the official Utah written test.
