Before you are able to start driving in Minnesota, you need to prove to the state that you have the knowledge necessary to be safe and to follow the laws on the road. They ensure this by testing drivers with a written exam. The test can be difficult or very easy depending on the amount of preparation that you do. As long as you follow the guidelines here, you should not have any trouble when it comes to passing your test. You will pass, get your permit, and then learn to drive so you can pass your road test. First, make sure you really know the rules of the road.

The driver’s manual

The best way to get up to speed on the rules and laws that you need to know is with the Minnesota Driver’s Manual, which is put out by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services Division. The manual contains everything you need to know about the traffic laws, parking laws, road signs, and safety. All of the questions on the test will come from information found in the manual, so make sure you have a copy.

Fortunately, you are able to download a PDF version of the manual, so you do not have to go out and pick up a physical copy. You could download it to your computer, and since it is a PDF, you could even add it to your smartphone, tablet, or e-reader so you always have it available.

Online tests

While the manual is an important first step in preparing for your Minnesota written driver’s test, you will also want to make it a point to find some online practice tests to take. Taking these practice tests will let measure how much you already know and what you need to learn. They act as a good gauge as to whether you could pass the actual written test. You can visit DMV Written Test and take the tests they have available. The test includes 40 multiple choice questions, and you are required to answer at least 22 of the questions correctly to pass.

When you start taking online tests and passing them, it will provide you with the confidence you need when it comes time to take the real test.

Get an app

Many people have their smartphone or their tablet with them at all times. Therefore, it might be a good idea to also download an app that can help you prepare for your exam. They include information about the rules in Minnesota, and they have test questions that can help you get read. Apps are available for all of the modern smartphone devices. Two that you might want to consider include Permit Test Minnesota and Drivers Ed app.

A final tip

When it comes time to take your actual test, stay as relaxed as possible. Make sure you read the questions thoroughly and take your time answering them. If you’ve studied, you will have no trouble finding the right answer and passing your test.

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.
