How to Prepare for the Connecticut Driver’s Written Test

Before you can get out on the road, and long before you can get your driver’s license, you need to take and pass your written driver’s exam in Connecticut. For some people, the idea of a written exam is depressing. They don’t feel that they do well on tests, and they get nervous. It’s understandable, but as long as you know how to prepare for your Connecticut driver’s written test, you will find that passing is actually quite easy. The state simply wants to make sure you will be safe behind the wheel and that you know all of the rules of the road. As long as you study and take your practice tests, you will pass with flying colors. The following is a simple but effective method of preparing for the test.

The driver’s manual

You really do need to have a copy of the Connecticut Driver’s Manual so you can prepare. The manual includes the traffic laws, road signs, road safety, and parking laws that are required to know before you can drive. One of the benefits of living in the modern age is that you don’t have to travel down to the DMV just to get a copy. Simply download the PDF to your computer. You can even add it to your tablet or your e-reader so you can have easy access whenever you need. Read and study the manual, and then move on to the next steps.

Online tests

The only way to really prepare for the tests is to take practice exams. Fortunately, you can find a number of practice tests online that can test your knowledge and help get you ready for the real test. The practice test from DMV Written Test that you will take has 25 questions, just like the real exam. You need to get at least 20 of the questions right in order to pass. This is just one of the many different practice exams that you can find online. Take them often and see how much you can improve your score. As long as you are studying and learning from the errors that you make, it will be easy to pass your actual test.

Get an app

It could also be a good idea to try out an app for your phone or tablet that can help you prepare. They have the information you need to get ready, and they have practice questions. There are a number of apps available that might suit your needs including Connecticut DMV Mobile App on Google Play and Drivers Ed on Google Play and the App Store.

A final tip

As a parting tip, you need to make sure that you are calm and that you take your time when you are taking the actual exam. Do not rush through the questions. If you’ve studied and taken your practice tests, you will find that the answers come naturally because you actually know them. Best of luck with your test!

Another home run! Really appreciate the flexibility regarding my service appointment. Due to my work schedule I desperately needed a late appointment.
