ADOT website has materials and practice tests to help aspiring drivers

PHOENIX – The school year is over, and summer has begun. Many students will still be studying for a very important test; their written driver instruction permit test. 

The summer break is typically a busy time for permit tests for the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division. Thankfully, the ADOT website is a great resource for test-takers and their parents, sharing the Arizona Driver License Manual and even free practice tests at azdot.gov/permit-tests

Aspiring drivers must be 15 years and six months old to apply for an Instruction Permit. First-time drivers younger than 18 have a few options for taking the written test. Most choose to take the test online via Permit Test @ Home available at AZMVDNow.gov

The permit test is also offered at MVD office locations. Applicants can schedule their in-person test appointment date and time at AZMVDNow.gov > Schedule an Appointment. Participating Arizona Professional Driving School trainers also administer the written test.
