I am going to take my test on Friday. I have the study pamphlet but was wondering if anyone could give an idea of what to study for. I know the whole thing is not on the test.

In VA, you could go to there site and take a practice test but they don't seem to have one on the site here in NC.

The test here is fairly simple, I believe they had somewhere around 21 questions that you need to get to pass it, about 80% of the total number of questions I believe, so I think you could give 3 wrong answers and still be able to pass the test, most of the test was quite simply, common sense, also, some of the questions that deal with numbers, say the distance before which you need to give an indicator signal, or how far behind a school bus you need to be, are all there in the book provided by the DMV.

I would recommend you to drop by at your nearest DMV, and ask them to provide you with a copy of the book, just make sure you go thoroughly over the right to pass, and the turn signals and their interpretation etc apart from the questions dealing with numbers. All the best.

Nicely said, I agree

However, I will add this... be sure to study all the road signs in the study book - there are some unusual ones that you will want to be familiar with.

Yeah I missed one of those, just one miss though, I remember it for that reason, it was the sign for "Slippery when wet", ironic that I never found it anywhere while driving on the highway though.

Since there are more questions on the test needed to pass, a tip someone told me was if you aren't sure of an answer, skip it to the next one. That way you can answer all the ones you do know well and hopefully be enough to pass without having to go back to the ones skipped.

I was surprised by all the questions relating to points and drinking while driving.....I was also taken aback by questions relating to passing farm vehicles/tractors, and some question about the use of seatbelts/people riding in the back of an open bed truck that were NOT the same answers they would have been in the state I came from.

They combine the road sign test with your eye test, and the tricky part is you must identify the road signs by color and shape with nothing written on it. I think I missed the railroad crossing sign! I told the lady I would recognize it if it said, "RAILROAD CROSSING" on the sign!! LOL

If I remember correctly, you answer the sign test with regulatory or non-regulatory.

And some of the questions were nothing like I have had to know in the 4 states that I have lived in. I was like really I need to know that to drive.
