Knowing When to Take the Oregon Driving Test

You’ll know you’re ready once you score 90% or higher on the Practice Test. Even though you only need 80% to pass the OR DMV test, you are encouraged to take precaution so that you can go into the exam fully prepared. If you find that you are scoring much lower than 90%, continue to drill the topics that are giving you the most trouble, so you are not caught off-guard on Test Day.

Test Day Tips

Now that you feel comfortable with all of the DMV material, it’s time to book your Test Day at the OR DMV. As the date approaches for your written driving test, keep in mind:

  1. To pass the OR DMV written test, you need to score an 80% or higher. The driver knowledge exam has 35 questions, 28 of which you must get right to be issued a learner’s permit.
  2. The cost to take a written drivers test is $5. The Oregon Department of Transportation only accepts cash or checks, not debit or credit cards.
  3. You may take the written driving exam up to 30 days before you turn 15.
