I am currently in the process of getting my permit. I went to the DMV, took my written test , and failed it. They said I could come back in 7 days to take it again. How many times can I take the test ? And if I fail the test again, when can I take it again after that?

Don't be so pessimistic. Even if you hate reading and studying you can take on-line practice tests and basically guarantee your passing. Put a little effort into it, it is not a hard test. If my son passed who is as lazy as they come when it comes to studying can pass, anyone can.

I think its 3 times, then you have to wait 3 months before you do it again.

Definitely go through the online test; also, when taking it (I'm assuming you're doing the written on the PC? I don't know how many do that now, Rahway does though), be sure to skip any questions you're unsure of. You'll just come back to them later, and lets you move to the ones you're 100% sure of. I know its odd, but because of the point system (atleast for when I had to take my motorcycle test a ways ago), you come out ahead by skipping over a wrong answer.

On the subject, but not trying to hijack this thread. So I have read the NJ MVC's rules for obtaining a license. I'm 36 with a valid license. Will I still have to take the knowledge test when I move to NJ from out of state?

The handbook from the MVC site is sort of vague. One section that talks about out-of-state residents getting a license says, "Motorists who move into New Jersey and possess a valid out-of-state driver license must apply for a New Jersey driver license within 60 days, or before the out-of-state driver license expires, whichever occurs first." This I understand.

The MVC site says this:

Replacing an out-of-state license
If you have recently moved to New Jersey, you are required to transfer your out-of-state license within 60 days of permanent New Jersey residency or before your current license expires. Your license cannot be transferred to a New Jersey license if you are under 18 years old. Instead, you must complete the Graduated Driver License (GDL) program requirements.


How to transfer your out-of-state license
Visit any MVC Agency and purchase a permit for each class of vehicle you will be operating. You will need to bring your out-of-state license and required documents to pass the 6 Point ID Verification. After you get the permit(s), visit any Driver Testing Center to take a vision test, knowledge test and possibly a road test. The knowledge test may be waived if you are 18 years or older and posses a valid, non-provisional, non-GDL driver license. The road test is waived if your out-of-state license is currently valid.

Does this mean I will not have to take this test?

OMG, I remember when taking the test in West New York, the test was riddled with grammatical errors that drove me up the wall because the meaning of each question was so convoluted, it was impossible to understand. I barely passed, and from what I gather, the Spanish version was far worse in that regard and people routinely failed.

Here's hoping you're in a locale where the testmakers aren't illiterate.
