Free Nevada Question and Answer Permit Test

by Joshua on June 09, 2014

Getting a Nevada Learner’s permit can be both very exciting and very nerve-wracking. The most important thing to remember is that getting the permit is a step toward getting an actual driver’s license and both are a huge responsibility.

Operating a motor vehicle not only means being able to get from point A to point B, but it also means that you are taking your life, your passenger’s lives and the lives of other drivers and pedestrians who are nearby into your hands as well.

With that in mind, it is highly important to be as prepared as possible for the "permit test ": . This includes knowing, or at least having an idea of, what to expect, studying the Nevada state Driver’s Handbook very carefully and taking practice tests before going to take the actual test.

How To Take the Test

To get a Learner’s Permit in the state of Nevada , an individual must be at least 15 and a half years old and complete 3 basic steps before taking the written test:

  • Present a completed Driver Authorization Card, Driver’s License or Identification Card Application. A parent or guardian must complete and sign the section pertaining to financial responsibility on the application.
  • Show proof of identity and Social Security number. Accepted forms include:

a. A U.S. birth certificate that is certified
b. Social Security card

  • Pass a vision test

Now you are ready for the test. Just don’t forget to bring your $22.25 for licensing fee, in addition $25.00 testing fee to the DMV. Once you’ve gotten your Nevada Learner’s Permit, you can drive only when supervised by another driver at least 21 years of age or older and who’s been driving for a minimum of one year. That person must also be seated beside you.

Once you pass the test, take a look at this web page, for information on how to get your Driver’s License in Nevada.
