This DMV practice test has just been updated for July 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 AL Driver Handbook. The Alabama DMV permit test will have 30 questions, and you’ll need to answer 24 of them to reach the 80% passing score. If you are preparing to take the knowledge test (written or computerized) to get either your Alabama learner’s license or driver’s license, make sure you bring the $5 fee with you to your license appointment. No checks are accepted. According to Alabama’s Graduated License Law, which took effect in 2002, anyone who is 15 years old can get a learner license. This type of license will help you learn to “safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle,” according to the Alabama Driver Manual. In order to get it, you need to pass the Alabama DMV written test (also known as the permit test). The format of our DMV practice test is just like the one you’ll take at the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s Driver License Offices. This practice test has 40 multiple-choice questions, and you’ll need to answer 32 of them correctly, for an 80% passing score.
