The New York DMV permit test can be taken by anyone 16 years of age or older, as part of the process to get your learner's permit. You'll have 20 multiple-choice questions testing your knowledge of road signs, rules of the road, and safe driving laws. To pass the knowledge portion of the DMV driving test, you must answer 14 questions correctly, including at least two of four questions on road signs. There is no additional fee if you need to retake the DMV test. You may want to make a reservation online to take your NYS permit test in one of the counties associated with a larger metro area. Once you pass, your learner's permit will be valid for 5 years. If you're a US citizen, you can also apply for an enhanced learner permit that can be used instead of a passport to cross into Canada or Mexico. This DMV permit practice test has just been updated for March 2021 and will help you succeed as it's a simulation of the actual knowledge test. It draws information directly from the 2020 New York Driver's Manual.
