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 knowledge test has 20 multiple choice questions, based on the material in the Vermont DMV 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.
