You need a New Hampshire driver’s license or learner’s permit if you want to drive on New Hampshire streets and highways. The driver test includes a vision test, a knowledge test, and a road test. The knowledge test is a 40 question multiple choice test. Each question is displayed along with four possible answers. You will have 40 minutes to complete the test, and you need at least 32 correct answers to pass (80%). The New Hampshire written test is designed to check your knowledge of road signs, road rules and safety rules. Everything you need to know is covered in the NH DMV Driver’s Manual. If you fail the test you may request an appointment to retest not sooner than ten days from the current date.
