Vermont FREE Practice Test Sections

Our FREE Practice Test will get you to see the layout of the official Vermont DMV written drivers test before you even take it. That is because the questions on the practice driving test are almost the same as those on the actual written knowledge exam. They are taken from the information in the official Vermont Driver’s Manual, and they focus on all of the sections presented below.

Become Familiar with Traffic Laws

Traffic laws are established regulations that you need to follow to be a safe and responsible traffic participant. Once you learn the traffic laws, it is your responsibility to obey them while operating a motor vehicle. This knowledge of traffic laws will also be beneficial for when you take the written knowledge exam, as laws are commonly asked about.

Use our Sample Practice Test to gauge your knowledge on traffic laws before taking the written drivers test.

Recognize Traffic Signs

Traffic signs of different shapes and colors can always be found on the side of the roadways. You need to understand their meanings in order to pass the written knowledge exam and safely operate a motor vehicle in Vermont.

Use the Study Guide and Free Sample Practice Test to learn about:

  • Traffic sign identification and meanings.
  • Traffic sign colors and shapes.
  • Warning signs.
  • Regulatory signs.
  • Railroad crossings.
  • Speed limit signs.

Obey Traffic Signals

Traffic signals go together with traffic signs in that they provide you with driving instructions. It is your obligation to learn their meanings for the written drivers test. Therefore, we advise you to check your knowledge on traffic signals with our Free Practice Test before taking the official Vermont DMV written knowledge exam.

Familiarize Yourself with Pavement Markings

The pavement markings on the roadways are as important as the traffic signs and signals. Future drivers must learn and obey them if they want to be safe and responsible traffic participants. You are advised to take the sample practice test if you are unsure about any of the following pavement markings:

  • Solid or broken white lines
  • Solid or broken yellow lines
  • Crosswalks and stop lines
  • Two way lanes
  • Shared center lanes

Drive Carefully in Inclement Weather

Bad weather conditions are the greatest cause of accidents on the roadways in Vermont. You need to be a very responsible and careful driver in order to avoid any unwanted situations while driving in inclement weather. Therefore, in order to pass the official Vermont DMV written drivers exam, the state requires that you know how to handle:

  • Hydroplaning, drifting and skidding.
  • Brake failure or wet brakes.
  • Tire blowout.
  • Driving in rain and snow.
  • Driving with limited visibility.
  • Jammed gas pedals.
