Reviews of North Carolina Driver's License Manual

i think u shud have to pay because they are not obligated to even allow to take a pretest before you take the actual test if u dont wanna pay for it then jus keep reading the manual over n over again until u think u got it down pac if not dont complain!!!

People should have to pay for the Pretest but not the actual test because money is tight right know so people don't have the money for both tests.


i think its gay that u have to pay to take a pretest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree, I don't think that they should charge for the pretest and then charge you for the test too.
