The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (commonly referred to as “PennDOT”) administers the driver’s license programs for the state. Driving students first get a PA learners permit. Getting a Pennsylvania permit should involve thorough study of the applicable Pennsylvania Driver’s Manual. Smart test takers will also find various sources for Pennsylvania permit practice tests. Taking the tests provides a good avenue for finding weak areas and improving the ability to answer the multiple-choice questions found on the PA drivers permit test.
Go to the Pennsylvania Driver’s Manuals page at dmv.state.pa.us/drivers_manual/index.shtml. On this page, you can access the appropriate manual for the permit and license you are trying to obtain. The main learners permits that are issued in Pennsylvania include those for regular cars, CDL (commercial) vehicles and motorcycles. There are also manuals for the school-bus endorsement and hazardous materials endorsement renewal (these are part of the CDL license).
Use the manuals to study for the Pennsylvania permit test. You can also look for practice questions inside the study manuals. Try to master all of the material before proceeding to the additional PA permit practice tests.
Note: One great source of practice permit tests is a Pennsylvania driver’s education course. If you have not taken a course yet, use that course to practice for your permit test. Otherwise, use any materials or test material you have left to practice.
