Driving Practice Test

If you’re preparing to take the New Jersey driving test, or you’re looking to work your way through the graduated driver license program, you’ll want to study up to make sure you’re prepared. The test is required for all motorists between the ages of 16 and 17. As part of this process, you’ll need to take the NJ permit test and the NJ MVC written test (often referred to as the NJ DMV written test) along with the road skills test to prove you have the safe driving skills to operate a motor vehicle in New Jersey. This website offers up NJ driving test simulations that include multiple-choice questions to help you practice your knowledge of road signs and traffic laws. All of the tests are free and work on both computers and mobile devices, so take them as often as you’d like. These New Jersey practice driving tests can be a valuable component to help you pass your permit test section of the NJ MVC written test. This is the sample passenger vehicle driver’s test for the state of New Jersey. You will be presented with 50 questions and you must answer 40 questions correctly to pass. There is no time limit. You may not go back once you answer a question.

How To Get A New Jersey Drivers License

New Jersey has a graduated driver license (GDL) program with three phases: the early bird, the young adult, and the adult. At age 16, you may apply for a Student Learner’s Permit. At age 17, you may apply for an Examination Permit. To obtain a Student Learner’s Permit (early bird), you will need to appear at your DMV with your driver’s Ed instruction and proof of identification, proof of driver’s Ed enrollment, a signed letter of consent from your parents or guardian(s).
You must pass a written test and a vision test. The test consists of 50 questions and you must pass with an 80 percent or better. The fee is $10. After you’ve completed 6 hours of driving, you may return to validate your permit and schedule a road test. The permit is good for 2 years. While driving with a learner’s permit you must have a 21-year-old licensed driver who’s been licensed for three years in the front seat, you may not drive between 11:01 pm and 5 am, and you cannot use a cell phone while driving.
After 6 months of driving with a learner’s permit, you may apply for an Examination Learner’s Permit (young adult). All the same documents are needed. You must be at least 17 years old. The fee is $10. This permit is also good for 2 years and you must hold this permit for at least 6 months before applying for the next level.

With an Examination Learner’s Permit, you have all the same restrictions as with the Student Learner’s Permit. After holding an Examination Learner’s Permit for 6 months, you are eligible for a provisional driver’s license.

All GDL levels of drivers must display a red, reflective decal on the upper left corner of their front and back license plates. Not having the decal makes you susceptible to a $100 fine. Any violation of any restriction is also subject to a $100 fine.
To obtain your provisional license, you must have your examination permit for at least three months. You must also be at least 17 years old and pass a road test. All New Jersey drivers (teens and adults) must hold a provisional license for at least one year before obtaining a full driver’s license.
