If you live in Vermont and plan to drive in Vermont, you must obtain a Vermont driver's license or learner’s permit. To get a driver’s license, you must pass a vision, knowledge and driving test. The DMV knowledge test has 20 multiple choice questions, based on the material in the Vermont Driver's Manual. The VT DMV written test is designed to check your knowledge of road rules, road signs and signals, traffic laws and safe driving practices. You must answer at least 16 questions correctly to pass the test. If you fail the VT DMV test, you must wait at least one day before taking another one. Practice with these sample tests and study the driver’s manual to get ready for the official Vermont DMV written test.
