How to Prepare for the Hawaii Driver’s Written Test

Few places in the world are as beautiful as Hawaii, and it is understandable that you want to get your license so you can go out there and enjoy all of them in your vehicle. Of course, before you can get your license, you need to pass your written test and get your permit. The written test can be difficult for those who do not take the time and put in enough effort to study for it. The state requires the test because they want to make sure that people are actually knowledgeable of the rules of the road. When you prepare for the written test properly, you will not have any trouble at all passing. The following are tips on the best way to prepare.

The driver’s manual

The item that will help you the most when you are preparing for the driver’s written exam is the Hawaii Driver’s Manual. This guide contains all of the rules of the road that you need to know. It has information on traffic laws, parking laws, safety, and road signs. All of the questions on the written test come right from the book as well. If you study the book, you will be in good shape for the test. Of course, you can improve your chance of passing by following the rest of the advice here as well.

Downloading a PDF of the manual is a simple way to get the manual without having to pick up a copy from the Hawaii Department of Transportation. You can put the PDF on your computer, or you can put it on your mobile devices and e-reader so you have easy access to it. Reading and studying the manual is important, but you also want to test your knowledge.

Online tests

When it comes to testing to see how much your studying has been helping, using online tests is a huge help. The tests from DMV Written Test have actual test questions that you might encounter on your written test. They have 30 questions, and you need to answer at least 80% of them right to pass.

The online tests can give you a good idea of how you will do on the actual test. Once you have studied the manual for a while, take one of the tests. Write down the questions you got wrong along with the correct answer. Study some more, and then take another test. Do this several times, and you will notice a marked improvement.

Get an app

You should also consider getting an app for your phone or your tablet. Apps will provide you with a fun and easy way to study and to take more practice tests. A number of apps are available for various platforms and devices. The following are two you may want to consider, Drivers Ed app and DMV Permit Test.

A final tip

Always take your time when you are at the actual test. You have plenty of time to answer the questions, so do not rush and make silly mistakes. Before you know it, you will have your permit so you can take your road test.

I really appreciate the time Greg took to answer all my questions and thoroughly explain what was working as expected and recommended repairs. He didn't try and upsell me on anything other than the immediate recommended services, and alerted me of the 15 safety recalls my truck currently has. Very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
Lexus LC500 - Oil Change - Tempe, Arizona
Informed me correctly that tires on a Lexus LC500 does not need tire rotation and yet YourMechanic.com recommended it more than once and sent a technician before him to rotate my tires for which I was charged.

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

All services were quickly completed. Thank you so much for another great experience with my.... Your Mechanic Lavell 5 ⭐️ Service consistently.
