If you are worried about passing the Illinois driver’s written test, don’t worry. It is not as bad as some people think it is, and as long as you take the time to prepare properly, you will pass it on the first try. The reason the written test exists is because the state needs to know that anyone who receives a driver’s learning permit understands the rules of the road. They want people to be safe and to follow the traffic laws. The following are some easy to use tips that will help you get ready for your test.

The driver’s manual

Before you do anything else, you will want to get a copy of the Illinois Rules of the Road, which is the state’s official driving manual. This manual contains the parking laws and traffic laws, as well as road signs and safety. It has all of the information you need to follow the laws and be safe on the road. All of the test questions on the written exam come directly from the manual as well. By studying the manual, you will be in good shape for the test, but you will still want to take the rest of the advice that follows.

You can choose the PDF manual, which you can download right to your computer. In addition, you can download it to your e-reader, your smartphone, or your tablet. One of the benefits of this is that you can always have it handy.

Online tests

Studying the manual is a huge part of doing well on the test, but you also need to gauge your knowledge before you actually take the test. The best way to do this is by taking online tests. DMV Written Test offers several written practice tests on their site that you can take. They have questions right from the official tests, so you can be sure that you are getting the right information when you take the tests.

The best way to use the tests is by first studying and then taking one of the practice tests. See how well you do, learn the questions that you got wrong, study some more, and then take another test. Each time you do this, you should notice an improvement on your score. This should help boost your confidence.

Get an app

You can also get your tablets and smartphones involved with your preparation in another way. Consider getting an app for your device that will help you boost your knowledge. There are excellent apps for all of the different devices out there. Two apps that you might want to consider include Drivers Ed app and DMV Permit Test. Having this study help in your pocket is great for whenever you have some downtime.

A final tip

One of the worst things you can do is rush through your test. Take your time and read the questions and answers carefully. Don’t be nervous. If you’ve studied and prepared, you will do just fine.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
