This Idaho DMV practice test has just been updated for July 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 ID Driver Handbook. In order to drive in Idaho, you’ll be required to pass the official ID DMV test. It’s also known as the DMV permit test, driving test, DMV written test, driver’s license test, or simply the driver’s test. You will need to take a 40-question written knowledge test if you are applying for your Idaho driver’s license for the first time, or if your Idaho driver’s license has been expired for over 25 months. The questions on the test will cover such topics as road signs, signals, symbols and markings, traffic and vehicle laws, and more. If you are over the age of 15 and you have met the requirements of Idaho’s Graduated License Program, you may receive your driver’s license after passing the knowledge test and a driving skills test. You must also provide proof of school enrollment or high school graduation (or its equivalent) to be issued a learner’s permit if you are under 18. If you are over the age of 18, you must simply pass the knowledge and skills tests to receive your license.
