Free driver permit practice tests available online
JVB Check It Out
The Department of Motor Vehicles, in partnership with Driving-Tests.org, offers free online Pennsylvania Driver Permit practice tests through the James V. Brown Library’s website at www.jvbrown.edu.
Select “Online Resources” to take the free sample permit tests, as many times as needed, until you are ready to take the real DMV test. The site offers practice tests for cars, motorcycles and commercial drivers (CDL), along with driver’s handbooks and a senior citizens’ refresher test.
There are multiple versions of each test, which vary from 20 to 150 questions long, with questions that are similar or often identical to the real DMV test. The practice tests offer hints, detailed explanations and immediate feedback, along with questions about fines, limits, regulations, road signs and citations.
No library card number or personal information is needed. This resource also is great for anyone looking to brush up on his or her knowledge of Pennsylvania’s traffic laws. A helpful FAQ section addresses questions residents might have about visiting their local DMV, such as how to renew your PA license, those who are new to PA and documents needed to apply for a PA license.
This free service supports the statewide information literacy initiative of PA Forward, which helps citizens know how to use online resources and current technology to improve their education and fully participate in a digital society.
— The Office of Commonwealth Libraries has directed all PA libraries to close until further notice by order of the Governor. Due dates are extended until sometime after the library re-opens. The James V. Brown will announce new due dates at that time. The James V. Brown Library is currently closed but available 24/7 at www.jvbrown.edu.
