Here’s What Other Learners From NH Are Saying:

"This is the absolute best study tool for the written test! I passed the test easily by doing each practice test on this site every night before I went to the DMV and once I did the questions were either very similar or the same as the real test questions. I am so happy I used this to study from instead of reading the manual over and over. This is much more helpful because it is in the same exact form as the DMV permit test. Thank you for having this website available, you rock!!!!"

Kayla F., Manchester, New Hampshire

"I cleared my exam today. The above tests are really helpful but just going through it without reading manual will not help. One has to go through the manual at least once and note important points. Again the test will boost your confidence."

Naresh C., Nashua, New Hampshire

"This is really worth to go through this site. Honestly saying 65 % to 70 % Questions at DMV written test are based on the Questions at this site"

Meena C., Concord, New Hampshire

"Honestly these tests were great practice! I passed the test comfortably and with no problems at all. I would say your best bet is to read the guide and then take these practice tests to test your knowledge."
