This DMV practice test has just been updated for May 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 AK Driver Handbook. In order to be allowed to drive in Alaska, you will need to pass a written knowledge test. The test will consist of 20 multiple-choice questions and you will need to answer 16 of them correctly to pass. The information covered on the test will come directly from the 2024 Alaska Driver’s Manual. The other types of tests you need to pass will depend on the type of license you are trying to obtain. If you are between the ages of 14 and 16 and trying to qualify for your learner’s permit, you just need to pass the knowledge test and a vision test. If you are over 16 and trying to upgrade your learner’s permit to a provisional or regular license, or trying to get your license at any age, you will need to pass the written knowledge test, a road skills test, and an alcohol and drug awareness knowledge test. The cost for a learner’s permit is $15, while the cost for a driver’s license is $20. This DMV practice test will help you prepare for the real test, as it covers the same information and requires the same passing rate as the real test.
