Permit

I'm 15 and trying to do the "Parent taught drivers" in Texas. I had filled out all the paperwork, but didn't know a test would be involved. I suck with tests and I know I will fail. I scored a 56% on 50 question practice test and 28 right. I don't know what score you have to have to pass?

Is there anything that will help me with this test?

Any useful information?

if its anything like missouri you have to get an 80% to pass. but you can take it as many times as you want, up to three times a day. and there are only like 6 forms of the test, so you are guarnteed to get the same test once.

I found out you have to get a 70%. I don't know if they allow doing the test over up to 3 times a day. If it was that easy then I could easily pass. After doing the online test after two times I get a 67%.

The test is basically all common sense.

Here in California, you can only take one permit test a week. They were all multiple choice, and you can miss 8, thats 80% to pass. I got lucky, my first time taking it I barely passed, missed 8, one more and I woulda failed...

As far as i know (my friend went in today) its like $125 and theres four pages (2 of multiple choice and 2 of road signs) and you can get a maximum of 8 wrong. Pretty straight forward from what i hear.

Oh ya, and you can take it again the same day if you want. If you fail the first one its $10 for every time AFTER that. And i think i was told theres only like 3 or 4 versions of the test here.

It all depends on where you live. See all the different responses you're getting?
Here we have I believe either 6 or 7 test versions, car_crazy89 has 3 or 4 in his location.

You should try to find some specific info about the state/province you're taking your test in and how it works there.
