Kentucky FREE Practice Test Sections

The free Sample Practice Test is made up of questions geared to prepare you for the real DMV written drivers test. Everything from road signs to turning maneuvers will be asked about. By getting started now, you are well on your way to acing the knowledge exam on your first try.

Traffic Laws

By far the most detailed and important section of the Kentucky Driver’s Manual focuses on road rules and traffic laws. Knowing the proper number of feet before turning to turn on your indicator, or how to navigate a four-way “Stop” sign intersection are just a couple of examples. Expect a high volume of questions concerning the traffic laws to be included. You can use the Sample Driving Practice Exam to prepare for the real DMV test.

Traffic Signals

Throughout any drive, traffic signals will be your guide. Hanging over intersections and leading you through tunnels, bridges and railroad crossings, knowing what the different signals mean is critical. Their purpose is to keep drivers safe on the road and maintain a steady flow of traffic by telling you how to:

  • Navigate traffic.
  • Go through pedestrian crossings.
  • Turn at an intersection.
  • Enter a ramp.

Use the free sample driving test and see how well you can follow traffic signals.

Traffic Signs

Perhaps the most emblematic traffic sign is the “Stop” sign. Yet there are a number of other road signs you may have never noticed before. “Right lane merging,” “deer crossing” or highway exit signs are all examples of signs you need to recognize. The DMV written test includes 10 questions specific to road signs, and you can only get two wrong. Test yourself with the Study Guide to see how well you will do.

Pavement Markings

Learn to read pavement markings. Take the DMV sample test to see how well you know these road lines:

  • Lane separations
  • No passing zones
  • Edges of the roadway
  • Turning lanes
  • Reversible lanes
  • One-way roads
  • Bicycle lanes
  • Sharrows (shared-use lanes)

Inclement Weather

Driving in inclement weather can be dangerous. By learning how to navigate your car through snow, rain or sleet, you can prevent a serious accident. Review this chapter in the KY driving manual and use the Study Guide to commit the instructions for dealing with the following possible problems to memory:

  • Driving with wet brakes
  • Brake failure
  • Blown tires
  • Engine malfunction
  • Skidding
  • Jammed gas pedals

  5. Take the Practice Test, and see how prepared you are to go to the DMV. If you scored a 90% or higher, you are more than ready to ace the written driving test. If not, just go back to the sections giving you trouble and commit the rules to memory. Good luck!
