This Minnesota DVS practice test has just been updated for June 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 MN Driver Handbook. Minnesota requires that you must hold a driver’s permit before moving on to a license, regardless of your age; to qualify for a driver’s permit, you’ll need to pass a written knowledge test. You’ll need to correctly answer a minimum of 32 questions to pass. You may apply for your permit once you’re 15 years old. You’ll need to pass the written exam, take a vision test, have parental consent, complete required classroom instruction, and be enrolled in a behind-the-wheel instruction course. Once you are 16 or older and you’ve completed at least six months with your permit, or three months if you’re over 18, you may apply for a provisional license. Your written test will cost $12 and includes two attempts; after that, it will be an additional $10 per retesting. Make sure you’re able to pass on your first attempt by using this Minnesota DVS practice test.
