Those who want to get their driver’s license in Oregon need to make sure that they first pass their written test and get their permit. The state needs to make sure that any prospective drivers out there have their knowledge of the rules of the road well in hand before they can actually get on the road, and the written test is a good way to judge that. Many people let the idea of a written test intimidate them, but they shouldn’t. The test is not difficult to pass as long as you take the time to prepare and to study properly. It is easy to do if you follow the advice below.

The driver’s manual

You first need to make sure you have access to the Oregon Driver Manual. This is available in English and in Spanish, and you can also choose an audio version if you prefer. Some may want to download the PDF as well as the audio option to complement it. The manual contains all of the information you need to know to drive in the state, and to pass your written exam. In fact, all of the questions on the exam will come right from the pages of the manual.

When you download the manual to your computer, think about adding it to some of your other devices as well. For example, you may want to put it onto your phone, tablet, or e-reader. The manual covers parking laws, traffic laws, safety, road signs, and more.

Online tests

Once you have had the time to read and study the manual, you will want to see how much of that knowledge you retained before you take the actual test. The best way to do this is by taking online practice tests. A number of sites offer online tests for Oregon, and you can use them to gauge your knowledge and learn what you need to study more. You can visit DMV Written Test to find several tests.

Take several of these tests over the course of studying the manual, and you will notice that your score keeps going higher. Even if you don’t miss any questions on your first practice exam, continue taking these tests. Then, the real exam will seem easy.

Get an app

To get in even more practice and preparation for the test, consider downloading an app to your phone or tablet. Two good options include Drivers Ed app and DMV Permit Test. They will help you further increase your knowledge so you can be better prepared for the real exam. One of the nice things about using apps is that you can simply pull out your device whenever you have a few extra minutes to study.

A final tip

Do not make the mistake that many others have made during the real exam, which is rushing through the test to get it over with. You need to slow down and read the questions to know what they are asking. Then, the right answer will be obvious thanks to all of your preparation. Good luck!

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
