Hi folks,

I found this online and thought other newcomers might find this helpful:

http://www.quia.com/de/ncmain.html

You can test your knowledge of street signs (set up like the child's game "Memory") or you can test you knowledge of NC driving laws on the sample test.

Enjoy!

Thanks so much for the link. We will be taking our tests in three weeks after we move and I was just about to print out the drivers handbook to study. It's a good little site. Reminds of the little things you can "forget" over time.

I found this to be a more useful source of test specific questions once you read the manual. I don't recommend skipping the Drivers Manual before going through this coz you still want to know the rules completely.

YAHOOO! I took the test and got 85% right on the written test and 100% right on the signs portion. The questions I missed were on the age of children in car seats (4 years-old), out here in CA I think it is 6 years or 60 pounds. I missed the one on how long you have til you get you license after moving to NC (60 days) I thought it was 30. And I missed the question on how long you have to notify the DMV of an address change (60 days) I once again thought 30.

I second the value of the jay tomlin site. He's right about the questions being insipid and poorly worded. A definite must read.

This too is helpful and I'd seen this page when I searched for the sample quiz.

But, I also liked having the Q/A format of the quiz. Of course, this quiz isn't the definitive list of the questions you can expect to find on the test, but it at least helps you know what you're in for, especially if it's been a while since you've taken a driving test, like me!

I don't discourage anyone from reading the manual - it is the best way to learn about the state's unique laws. Without reading the manual I never would have known that the law states you must report accidents that have an estimated amount of damage of $1000 or more.

Thanks for posting these links! I had heard that some of the questions are misleading, and it's nice to see examples of how they are misleading in order to prepare for the exam in a more realistic way.

Default thanks

maybe it won't be as intimidating if one can practice at home

If you fail the written exam, how long before you can take it again?

We are moving the NC. Does everyone moving into the state need to take the test to get an NC license?

I also wanted to know if my son should get his permit here in CA or just wait until we get to NC? We are moving next month?

Thanks
