This Delaware 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 DE Driver Handbook. In order to receive your Delaware learner’s permit, provisional license, or driver’s license, you will need to take a class D knowledge test (also known as the DMV permit test). All of the answers to this 30 multiple-choice question test can be found in the 2024 Delaware Driver’s Manual, and you must score at least 80% to pass. While individuals under 18 may not have to take the knowledge test, Delaware is relatively unique in that a parent or sponsor is legally responsible for any infractions made by a 16-18-year-old driver after they receive their learner’s permit. Therefore, it is recommended that both a teen and their sponsor should study and be aware of all information in the DE Driver’s Manual that is covered on the Class D knowledge test. This permit practice test can both help you prepare for your knowledge test and help ensure that you are familiar with all relevant information to be a safe driver.
